“Last year was one with growth across the board, one in which we concluded that digital payments are no longer the future but the present in Romania. NETOPIA mobilPay continues to be the vanguard of mobile payments on mobilPay Wallet too, the only digital wallet in the country that can be used to pay for shopping, utility bills, restaurant meals and more recently property management fees,” NETOPIA mobilPay CEO and Founder Antonio Eram (photo) stated.
