9mobile partners Bango to introduce mobile payment service in Nigeria

9mobile has gone one step towards reaffirming itself as one of the most innovative telco with the launch of 9pay. This is an operator-billed payment platform for Google Play store users, launched in collaboration with Google, and Bango, the leading global mobile payments company.

According to its Chief Product & Information Officer, Otuyemi Otule, 9mobile is delighted to expand its mobile payment solutions in Nigeria, which has a combination of a highly unbanked and highly mobile-first population. He added that 9mobile’s 9pay offers millions of consumers a means of making important financial transactions.

9pay can be used for a variety of things. If you are a local app or game developer, you will love this because you will find it easier to monetize your offerings.

With 9pay, you can pay for your apps, games and more, on Google Play store; transfer funds to a loved one or send money to your friend’s bank account, and so much more. If you are wondering where your funds go to, all funds are safely warehoused and monitored by the United Bank of Africa (UBA) plc.

Just ask your retailer to transfer the change from their 9pay account to your 9pay account. The convenient part is you can transfer this “change” from your 9pay account to your bank account and cash out!
