Her­itage Bank launches pay at­ti­tude

Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - By Chris Agabi

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.
