Nearex is a privately held company with investment from individuals and industry and was founded by mobile technology industry veterans Mayank Sharma and Arun Tanksali in 2012 to overcome the challenge of cashless micropayments.

Its XIP solution offers merchants XipPOS, a low cost credit card sized mobile point of sale device and consumers with XipTAG, a secured contactless card or a sticker.

XIP system integrates with existing mobile wallet services and can be offered by mobile money service providers or other financial institutions to create a payment network at low-cost, Nearex said in the statement.
