M-payment: Pageonce Launches Mobile Bill Payment Tool
The PFM tool Pageonce now proposes a service to be added to its Smartphone app Pageonce Money & Bill. This service enables mobile bill payments.
A conclusive test phase had been conducted with the help of 1,000 users. It is now available for download from several Marketplaces for iPhone, iPad, Android devices, BlackBerry and Windows Phone.
Pageonce Money & Bill gathers the user’s billing information (planned payment dates, amounts). It also provides details as of the user’s expenses. Payments can be made anytime with any of the user’s accounts.
This procedure takes place in three steps: selection of a means of payment, specification of the amount and validation. The user receives payment confirmation via e mail.
Pageonce would like its solution to be integrated in a mobile wallet,
the development of which seems to be currently taking-off. Mobile
devices are becoming universal finance management means (m-banking,
loyalty, payment, etc.).
Pageonce has already appealed to five million US and Canadian users now
managing their budget through their mobile phone: this popularity could
make Money & Bill’s commercialisation easier.
The monthly 4.99 dollars fee charged on the user could however hinder
its deployment (today’s context is in fact marked by pressuring
positions on banking fees).
