Hang Seng partners CSL to extend mobile payment service in Hong Kong

Wednesday 20 November 2013 00:52 CET | News

Financial institution Hang Seng Bank has partnered with mobile network operator CSL to extend its mobile payment service to 1O1O and one2free customers, allowing them to use designated near field communication (NFC)-enabled mobile phones to make payments at a number of retail outlets in Hong Kong.

Beginning early 2013, the service is set to be offered to 1O1O and one2free customers who hold a Hang Seng MasterCard. Participating customers are set to be able to use designated mobile phones to make payments through MasterCard PayPass terminals at approximately 3,000 merchant outlets. To activate the service, customers can visit a 1O1O Centre or one2free shop to obtain an NFC SIM card. After downloading the Hang Seng mobile payment app from the Google Play Store to an NFC-enabled smartphone, they can then download their Hang Seng mobile credit cards and use the phone to make payments.

Participating customers can also download e-coupons via the Hang Seng mobile payment app to receive special offers when making mobile payments. The e-coupons can be used in conjunction with cash dollars/ merchant dollars at designated merchants.

In recent news, PCCW mobile, an operating division of Chinese telecommunication services provider HKT, has entered an agreement with Hang Seng Bank to provide mobile payment services using near field communication (NFC) technology.
