Xcellink Expects Rapid Growth in Mobile Commerce and Expects Its Patents to Be Key

300 Billion Mobile Payment Transactions Will Be Made in 2013, Totaling US$800 Billion, According to a New Report

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - August 17, 2009) - Xcellink International Inc. (OTCBB: XCEL), an advanced platform-independent developer of customer-centric payment systems and methodologies, today welcomed Mobile Telecommunications Industry observations predicting rapid growth in mobile payments using smart phones.

Informa Telecoms & Media predicts that 300 billion mobile payment transactions will be made in 2013, totaling US$800 billion, according to a new report. It also suggest that revenue from mobile payments in 5 years time will be as high as US$10 billion, a twelve-fold increase on what we see today.

The report also predicts that mobile transactions will change in nature; whilst in 2008, approximately one third of mobile payments were for mobile content such as ringtones or games, by 2013 people will be far more likely to be using their mobile to purchase physical goods and services. Alongside this, users of mobile banking are predicted to grow significantly, from 67 million in 2008 to 977 million in 2013.

A scan of the industry reports will show that the effort going into mobile payments at the moment is huge: Many banks, often in conjunction with communications companies are trialling payment systems based on near-field communications around the world, new software solutions are facilitating remote payment over mobile internet connections, remote imaging of cheques is becoming common, and hardware manufacturers are producing add-on phone items that allow some of the older card techniques to be accommodated.

"We fully agree with the industry trends that there will be exceptional growth rates in mobile payments over the coming years," commented a Company spokesman. "But this is only the beginning. As new developments allow even faster and more immediate communications to mobiles, and more integrated services utilizing near-field links between mobiles and businesses, then our patents which address some of the problems in the currently available solutions will be key to a whole new range of services based on consumer-centric solutions that will revolutionize personal trade."
