We are running another free event with Snapper in Wellington!

Join ABnote and Snapper for an exclusive Geekzone event as they present (and answer any questions) the next stage of Touch2Pay with Snapper Mobile – the deployment of New Zealand’s first production Trusted Service Manager (TSM) that allows Over the Internet (OTI) issuance of a Snapper onto a compatible NFC smartphone.

When: Wednesday 29th August 2012 from 5:45pm

Drinks and nibbles provided!

I will be sending out an email tonight to everyone with "Wellington" in the profile, but you can go to the event registration page and get your registration done.

Make sure you register now - only 50 seats available.

Pretty soon Snapper Blog will have a post about the new platform and how it will make it easier to get Snapper on compatible handsets.

Snapper has posted a blog entry about Touch2Pay and the Trusted Service Manager platform.

I am also told they might have someone from 2degrees present who will talk about new Touch2Pay handsets and go in-depth about why the Galaxy SIII required a new SIM...

For those people attending (or anyone else interested really), you can post questions here that Snapper will try to answer during the event.

Folks, this event is TOMORROW. Here is a related press release from Snapper:


Snapper has today announced the next stage of development of Touch2Pay with Snapper Mobile. For the first time a Snapper can now be issued to a Touch2Pay smartphone with the new standard Touch2Pay SIM securely over the internet, instead of being issued at the time the SIM is produced. This latest development makes it easier to get Snapper onto more Touch2Pay smartphones, giving customers even more choice.

In May, Snapper and 2degrees partnered to bring Kiwis the first ever smartphone service that can be used to pay for everyday items - Touch2Pay with Snapper Mobile. Since that time, 2degrees have launched additional Touch2Pay compatible handsets, including the popular Samsung Galaxy S III.

ABnote have provided its industry leading Trusted Service Manager (TSM) platform that powers the secure issuance needed for Touch2Pay with Snapper Mobile. The TSM is a New Zealand first and draws on ABnote?s 217 years of experience in the field of secure payment issuing that has evolved from banknotes, cheques and smartcards to now the most innovative mobile payment services.

Instantly add Snapper to your Touch2Pay compatible smartphone.

Snapper CEO, Miki Szikszai says ?Our goal with Touch2Pay with Snapper Mobile is to make it easier for customers to pay for everyday items. Part of that includes making it easier for customers to get a Snapper into their hands in the first place.

In the past, a Snapper card would need to be produced in a secure publishing bureau and then shipped to where a customer can buy it. This is a physical process that takes time and effort, and results in a card that a customer needs to pay for.

Touch2Pay with Snapper Mobile revolutionises this. By using the smartphone that a customer already has and the latest technology from ABnote and 2degrees, a customer can instantly add Snapper to their Touch2Pay compatible smartphone. And it's all done using the highest standard of payment industry security.?

Thanks yet again to Snapper, 2Degrees, Mauricio and AB Note for the presentation last night was interesting to see some of the new things that have evolved since the touch 2 pay launch a few months back.

Also again the venue was up to task with good nibbles and a good selection of drinks on hand too both of which went down nicely.

Also thanks for the phone was a real surprise to hear my name called out at the end of the night really made my day. Shame I left there and watched what turned out to be a very average Batman finale.

Once again thanks to all who helped this night to be what it was.

Thanks to everyone who attended the event last night - some interesting changes in mobile payments and good to see New Zealand is at the front of how things are done!

Congratulations to the winners who took home some Snapper-enabled Touch2Pay 2degrees handsets.

Thanks to Snapper, ABNote and 2degrees for the evening!
