Pay securely with your smartphone on any device, anywhere!
At Minkasu, we realize that online and mobile shopping today relies on weak and cumbersome methods of authentication like username, password, OTP, etc. We believe that the power of smartphone in our hands is still largely untapped, and therefore, we created Minkasu.
Minkasu is a mobile payment solution that uses the smartphone as an authentication device to make a payment on any device, any browser, any channel, anywhere. Its cutting edge security technologies make shopping safer and easier than ever before.
The Minkasu App delivers seamless user experience across all channels — online, mobile web, social channels, messaging platforms, in-app and in-store — without usernames and passwords. Fingerprint is used to authenticate transactions, and credit card numbers are neither stored, nor shared.
It is the only true multi-channel mobile payment solution in the market today, which is also ubiquitous.
