Interswitch, one of the leaders in digital payments and commerce provider for Africa, has announced the launch of it's integration of its Quickteller services with BlackBerry’s BBM via a new app called Quickteller Mini available for smartphones.
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.
