Airtel Unveils “Smart Way to Pay” Technology

Airtel Ghana has entered into another customer-oriented partnership with Verifone Moble Money in adding more to the Mobile Money space by introducing a more convenient and smartest way of paying for goods and services at some supermarkets across the country.

Customers of Airtel can now buy goods from outlets such as Koala and KFC without hard cash. The technology, which is the first of its kind in Ghana, would enable subscribers pay for their goods at various points of sale outlets via their mobile wallet.

Marketing Director and Acting Director, Airtel Money, Manu Rajan explains “it’s just a sticker that you stick on your phone and you configure that to your phone.

“If you have an Airtel SIM card on your phone and you put the NFC sticker on, then you just go to an NFC-enabled machine outlet and with a tap of your phone, you do your payments.”

“It doesn’t have to be a smart phone. Any phone that you have, you just put the NFC sticker on and you put your Airtel money SIM card in and then you are on”, he said.
