PPRO, MBWay, Portugal, Digital payments Digital payments provider PPRO has expanded its coverage of the Portuguese market by integrating mobile wallet provider MB WAY onto its platform.  This development comes as a result of PPRO’s long-standing partnerships with parent firm SIBS and Deutsche Bank Portugal.
