Swish Payments mPOS provider was granted a Financial Institution license by the Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA). This allows Swish to operate as a licensed financial institution under the European Commission Payment Services Directive. This marks a major milestone towards Swish’s global expansion by enabling delivery of services within the European market. Swish brought the first low-cost EMV chip-and-signature solutions for mobile payment card acceptance to the Asia Pacific region. Now the company is poised to introduce compelling EMV chip-and-PIN solutions for mobile payment card acceptance in the United Kingdom and Canada in the coming months.
