May 2016: Australia Patent

The latest Patent Office to recognise i-movo’s inventive adaptation of Industry Standard card payment methods for issue and redemption of ‘secure digital vouchers’ is Australia.

This follows grants of patents in the United Kingdom, New Zealand, South Africa and the USA for the same design and process.

The granting of a patent is not, in itself, an endorsement of an idea nor any guarantee of commercial success. However, when viewed in context of the eighteen million transactions we have processed, worth over a quarter of a billion pounds at over 60,000 retailers, it does validate our belief that our method is one of the very few (possibly only…) viable ways for a range of retailers to accept digital vouchers without any financial risk.
