About us

MDBlu is a flexible solution for delivering mobile payments and digital content.


MDBlu is not an app

MDBlu is a combination of low cost hardware with an intuitive Software Development Kit (SDK) for app developers. That's right, we're not an app, we supply the hardware and take care of the connectivity and authentication. YOU develop your own functionality and work with any payment processors and consumers solutions you want.

MDBlu supports multiple apps through a single piece of hardware. Need a custom app for a client or want different solutions on different machines - no problem. Our SDK allows any operator, brand owner, machine manufacturer or software developer to bring their solutions to market without the need for custom hardware.

We put the operator in control

Consumers today change their minds... Alot.

Today's trend or hot app is tomorrow's forgotten solution. The mobile world moves fast, the only way to stay ahead is to remain flexible. We allow you to work with multiple apps on the same machine at the same time. MDBlu won't force you to bet an a solution, we let you play the field.
