Heritage Bank launches pay attitude
Heritage Bank has launched the Pay Attitude mode of payment to give its customers a variety of payment solution options.
The Pay Attitude is a Chip and Pin tag-type contactless solution based on Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, which converts a customer’s mobile phone to an NFC device and links the handset to the customer’s debit or prepaid account plus ePurse account, enabling the subscriber or customer to debit their accounts for different payment transactions.
According to a statement from the bank, the Managing Director/CEO of the bank, Mr. Ifie Sekibo, said that Pay Attitude was included as part of the bank’s collection of payment solutions because of its plus functionality, which guarantees subscribers the confidence and comfort of successful proximity or contactless payment for goods and services at merchant locations at all times, notwithstanding problems or challenges of telecommunication or unavailability of network of the merchant or customer’s bank.
The MD/CEO said such transactions are authorised offline up to the value of plus functionality that the customer subscribed to with the bank.
