BlackBerry Limited to Enhance Mobile Payment Capabilities for BBM Users

BlackBerry Limited has announced a series of new initiatives that will enhance the mobile payment capabilities for users of BBM, the private social network available for smartphones running Android, BlackBerry, iOS or Windows Phone. With the monthly active user count having grown by 150% over the past 12 months, and with Indonesia having only 11% debit card penetration and the 2nd faster rate of e-commerce growth after China, it is an ideal target market for BBM Money. Developed by Monitise and issued and managed by PermataBank, BBM Money was initially made available in early 2013 to BlackBerry users, offering basic mobile wallet services. The new BBM Money will also be made available to Android and iOS smartphone users, regardless of who they bank with or whether they have a bank account. The new BBM Money will enable payments in participating retail stores and online, while continuing to benefit from bank-grade security measures including passcodes and encryption and leveraging BlackBerry's expertise and legacy in security and privacy. Complementing BlackBerry's extensive mobile network operator relationships, TransferTo works with over 350 MNO's in 100+ countries, reaching over 3.6 billion prepaid users. BBM will integrate with TransferTo's airtime transfer services meaning users can send prepaid mobile credit to their contacts overseas, seamlessly from within the BBM app.
