Mpayy, which launched a beta version of its services in the first quarter, will use the financing to grow its merchant and personal accounts and to develop its e-commerce, mobile commerce and widget-based payment services.

It provides payment acceptance services to online retailers and to individuals such as sales reps and taxi drivers who can use a customer’s web-enabled cell phone for payment. It also provides individuals with free person-to-person money transfers through online and mobile sites as well as through a social networking widget.
“We continue to view Mpayy as an attractively positioned player in alternative payments with a compelling and unique value proposition” says Mac McCullough, US Bank executive vice president and Mpayy director.
