Circle K convenience stores, the U.S. brand for Alimentation Couche-Tard, will now join the MCX effort, along with Kohl’s department stores.
MCX said the two merchants are No. 76 and No. 20 respectively on the National Retail Federation list of top merchants. MCX’s merchant base now includes 90,000 stores, representing forty percent of the top 20 and 20 of the top 100 merchants.
The mobile wallet will be built by Gemalto. Mobile payment processing services will be provided by FIS, which currently provides mobile solutions to many of the nation’s largest banking institutions.
