The company MBILLS is owned mainly by Petrol, the largest energy
and retail company in Slovenia with an annual turnover of EUR 5.4
billion. Around 80% of transactions in Slovenia are still carried out
in cash, meaning there is a huge market potential for mobile and
digital payments. MBILLS is the first Slovenian fintech to enable
payments using Garmin wearables.

Mag. Primo? Zupan, Director of MBILLS, commented, "By combining
our mBills app with Garmin, we are able to offer customers an even
broader range of devices to pay with, providing more flexibility and
freedom for our customers. Wirecard's proven expertise in enabling
mobile payments not only on smartphones but also on wearables has
been instrumental in our ability to introduce this new option to

Boris Bongartz, Head of Sales, Digital Goods, at Wirecard, added:
"Mobile payments are gaining traction worldwide because of their
convenience and flexibility. By enabling mBills customers to add
their digital mBills card to Garmin Pay, consumers do not need their
physical wallet nor their smartphone for the payment process - this
is how we are further driving the use of digital payment solutions
and making it even easier for Slovenian consumers to pay on the go."

Wirecard and MBILLS offer a complete mobile digital payment
solution. All functions - from ordering, activating and blocking the
card and managing finances, to setting transaction limits or
activating or blocking payments outside the European Union - are
mobile and available worldwide anytime. A list of all expenses and
the associated cost control and budgeting for the user are also
included in the functionality. After each transaction, a notification
is sent to the user's smartphone free of charge. The mBills
Mastercard can be conveniently applied for in the app and is linked
to the user's own mBills account.
