Paynova’s wallet solution has been nominated for the SESAMES Awards 2004, where selected companies are presented and winners are chosen in nine categories within the credit card and IT security industry. The results will be announced in Paris on 2 November at the well-known international trade fair Cartes & IT Security 2004.

Paynova’s payment service, the Paynova Wallet, has been nominated as one of three solutions in the “e-Transactions” category, which is new this year, and includes “secure electronic transactions, e-government and virtual payments”. This new “e-Transactions” category and an all-day conference on the subject of e-payments are a consequence of the rapid developments we are seeing in e-commerce. The SESAMES Awards and the nominated companies are receiving a great deal of attention in the international trade press. The Cartes & IT Security Exhibitions & Conference 2004 takes place in Paris from 2 to 4 November 2004. This year’s fair is expected to attract more than 15,000 visitors, including 258 journalists from 120 countries.
