Tuesday, October 20, 2015
African digital payments company Interswitch has announced a partnership with BlackBerry that has led to the launch of the Quickteller Mini App.
The app allows BBM users with a Nigerian bank account to request money, airtime and payment for services from their BBM contacts. The app is available for Android, BlackBerry and iOS devices.
According to Interswitch, the service allows BBM users in Nigeria to be paid via Quickteller 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 company said in a statement.
