Quickteller is one of such, we know how the banking app market has been saturated, almost every bank now has their own mobile app. To still be able to stay relevant, QuickTeller has created an easier way of making payments by partnering with one of the biggest communication platform – BBM.
Interswitch announced the integration of its Quickteller services with BlackBerry’s BBM™.
SO HOW WILL THIS WORK?
The service will be made possible with a new app called Quickteller Mini Smartphones running Android™, BlackBerry and iOS®.
With this partnership, BBM users with a Nigerian bank account can make a request for money, airtime and payment for services from one of their BBM contacts. The Quickteller Mini App enables this in a secure and user-friendly way. This service is as easy as sharing a photo or file while chatting with a contact on BBM. You simply select the attachment option, choose Quickteller, enter the amount and make a request. The recipient of the message simply taps it and enters their account details. The money is credited to the recipient’s bank account instantly.
The Group Managing Director, Interswitch, Mitchell Elegbe commented on this new service saying,“Person-to-Person transfers and electronic airtime recharge presents a growing market opportunity in Nigeria. We are delighted to bring our secure payment services to BBM users in Nigeria. This partnership demonstrates how Interswitch continues to innovate and push the boundaries in African payments whilst enhancing the customer experience,”
Just install the app (via Blackberry, Android, and iOS), sign up and Link with your BBM account.
After doing that, you will immediately notice that Quickteller has been integrated with BBM.
When that is complete, you can now launch the BBM app, open a chat with the contact you want to request money from. Tap the file button and tap on the Quickteller Mini option.
