Recently, Interswitch teamed up with Blackberry to make the well known Quickteller services available on the Blackberry Messenger (BBM). This feature is made possible by the Quickteller Mini app which is available on Android, iOS and now Blackberry devices.
Customers will be able to receive money from and send to their Blackberry Messenger contacts as well as purchase airtime and pay for services through the platform. It is as simple as sending an attachment (photos/file) when chatting on the IM and it is not only secure, it is also user friendly.
To get started, first you need to download the Quickteller Mini app on your mobile phone and either login to your quickteller account or sign up for one if you are new to it. On registering, a verification code will be sent to the phone number associated with the account to be entered into the app.
Once this is done, the next thing to be done is to link the app to your BBM account or create a 4-digit eCash PIN for future transactions. To request for airtime or money, from the chat app locate the attachment icon and click on the Quickteller icon.
Enter the amount you would like to receive and how you want to receive it (via bank account or eCash wallet). When the message gets to the recipient, all that is left is to key in his or her bank details to complete the transaction. The same process follows for requesting for airtime.
The Quickteller Mini app can be downloaded from the different platforms respective stores – Play Store (Android), App Store (iOS) and Blackberry World (Blackberry). It can also be accessible via bbm.quickteller.com.
