The Instant Payment Notification Hub: Exploring Its Utility Beyond Pay-As-You-Go Solar
The Instant Payment Notification (IPN) Hub is an industry utility created by the GSMA to enable ecosystem players to connect more easily to mobile money providers – bringing fundamental utility services (such as electricity, water and sanitation) to off-grid populations.
After demonstrating the value of the IPN Hub for the PAYG (pay as you go) solar sector, GSMA is now exploring how the hub may support more players and more use cases. This report explores the utility of the IPN Hub beyond PAYG Solar with a particular emphasis on the transport sector. It also highlights that the IPN Hub is not a one-size-fits-all solution, and is strategically designed to offer payment notification functionality only.
