CurrentC, the payments app being created by a consortium of big
retailers known as MCX, may not launch widely this year as
originally planned, MCX CEO Brian Mooney told Re/code in an
interview on Tuesday. The company will begin a public pilot of its
app in Columbus, Ohio, in a few weeks and will not rush a wider
rollout if the product is not ready, he said.
“This is a long game,” Mooney said. “Certainly going faster is
always better — that’s not necessarily a debatable point. But
we’re going to do it right.”
Where by “we’re going to do it right”, he means “we are doing it all wrong”.
