Thailand: Mobile Payment Partnership Launched by Citi, mPay & Prudential
Bangkok – An alliance between Citi and Thailand’s leading telecom and insurance companies, mPAY and Prudential, will permit customers to conveniently make insurance payments via a mobile phone.
Prudential policyholders can make insurance premium payments 24 hours a day, seven days a week, across Thailand at their convenience. After the payment is made, policyholders will receive an SMS to confirm the receipt and verify the payment transaction.
The cooperation among three partners will enhance customer satisfaction for Prudential policyholders through the use of modern technology from mPAY and safe and secure financial services from Citi.
Mr. Peter Eliot, Citi Country Officer, Citibank, N.A. Thailand said, "Citi continues its tradition to provide the best innovative cash management solutions to our customers. Today, with the collaboration with mPAY and Prudential, we are launching a new payment channel called M-Collect, which allows users to access financial services from a mobile phone as the point of payment transaction initiation.
“Prudential customers will benefit from this as an alternative payment channel from traditional channels such as counter services, post offices, ATMs, cashier checks, etc., and for ease and convenience to execute transactions at any time and from any location nationwide.”
Mr. Waroonthep Watcharaporn, Managing Director of Advanced mPAY Co., Ltd., disclosed, "As the mobile phone based financial transaction service provider facilitating users in making payment for products and services every time and anywhere, mPAY has recently cooperated with Citi and Prudential in the launch of service for AIS customers to pay insurance premium for every Prudential insurance policy easily on mobile phones with no service fees.
