Today the has published the first version of the Proxy Lookup () scheme rulebook which consists of a set of rules, practices and standards that makes it possible to operate, join and participate in the scheme.
The scheme covers the exchange of the data necessary to initiate payments between proxy-based payment solutions on a pan-European level. It aims to facilitate interoperability between participating payment solutions and is limited to a look-up function with the sole purpose of initiating a payment. The actual payment is however not part of the scheme and is covered by an ‘overseen’ payment scheme within the geographic area.
This first version of the scheme rulebook is based on the rules and Application Programming Interface () specification as defined by the Mobile Proxy Forum ().

Parties interested in participating in the service are kindly invited to contact Mr Henrik Hodam at equensWorldline (firstname.lastname@example.org).
