Droplet’s vision is to create a more convenient, equitable way for people to deal with their money. To begin with we are developing a mobile money app that lets you load cash onto your phone and send payments to anyone for free.
Why is Droplet different?
At the moment the world of mobile payments is clumsy and tiresome. Lots of companies are trying to get people to store their credit card details on their phones but this doesn’t really solve a problem for anyone.
Droplet is the first app of its kind that lets you send payments completely outside of the traditional banking and credit card systems. It’s a bit like cash – but digital and mobile. You don’t need to connect your phone to your bank account to use Droplet. Instead you just top up your account via your phone, a bit like you’d draw money out of a cash point.
By doing this Droplet solves a real problem: that of expensive fees for merchants and the inconvenience people face when they can’t send money to their friends easily.
We want to make sending money using your mobile a simple pleasure. Droplet is the first step towards changing the way the world manages money.
