Visa In Now Mobiles

December 15th, 2010 | No Comments | Posted in News

Now Visa has unveiled a free iPhone app in the U.S. The giant electronic payment operator’s new release will give users access to more than fifty retailers’ offers in this festive season. Merchants such as Holiday Inn, Zales and New York and Company will benefit from the service where they will be able to give offers to Visa members automatically. Those Visa account holders who possess the Visa Signature cards will be able to get additional offers over and above the standard offers. Visa account holders will choose to either redeem the offers which will be stored in the app, online or at the physical stores. The app also has a technology that gives consumers access to maps and directions to nearby participating retailers and ATMs. Visa has plans to have its payment facilities on mobile devices and is working closely with manufacturers worldwide to realize this goal.  For the iPhone app Visa partnered with Monitise, a company based in the UK that deals with mobile banking and payments. The electronic payment company got into an alliance with Monitise in June of 2009 with a view of developing mobile services that have been customized for different handsets. There is also an Android application whose participation is presently only available to some selected debit card holders in the U.S.
