With money in their MOVii wallet, users can instantly buy digital content, pay utility bills, recharge mobile voice and data services and transfer money to other MOVii users anytime, anywhere.
MOVii will soon introduce a prepaid Mastercard Companion Card. Customers will be able to make payments at POS machines in shop, purchase online and withdraw money at ATMs using the Mastercard Companion Card. With Movii customers can manage their money easily, safely and without paying a handling fee.
Hernando Rubio, Co-founder and CEO of MOViiRed, said, “In Colombia, people need to have a bank account or credit card to make digital payments online, leaving majority of Colombians out of the digital payments revolution. We are trying to change this picture with MOVii which provided access to digital financial services to all Colombians without any bias. With MOVii any Colombian, banked or unbanked, can make all kind of payments securely, easily and without any cost from their mobile phone. Our goal is to bring digital financial service to the masses and Comviva mobiquity Money is the right technology platform partner to achieve that aim.”
Manoranjan Mohapatra, Chief Executive Officer, Comviva, said, “In the past decade, mobqiuity Money, has helped many countries to bring millions of their unbanked citizens under formal financial system and increase financial inclusion. We are bringing our global experience of leveraging mobile money to create financial inclusion to Colombia, where 54% of adults are unbanked. MOVii powered by mobqiuity Money, is designed as an inclusive financial service that provides convenient and instant digital payments to the tech-savvy youth as well as basic financial services to the financially excluded. We are happy and proud to partner Movii for extending digital financial services to all Colombians and creating a cash-light economy.”
