NEW DELHI | Indian Digital wallet services company MobiKwik announced the launch of mobile wallet services for Windows phones in a joint effort with Technology giant Microsoft. Started in 2009, MobiKwik is a digital wallet service in India with a turnover of around Rs 200 crore and has about 3 million users in India.
The MobiKwik app, which can be downloaded on all Windows Phone smartphones, offers users the convenience and security to purchase goods and services on third party merchant websites. The app will be available for Windows Phone 7 and 8 on the Windows Phone app store. It is small in size, fast and light on the mobile phone CPU and bandwidth consumption, MobiKwik added.
Recharge & Pay in One Click
It can be used to recharge prepaid and postpaid mobile, television/DTH, data cards and make bill payments for broadband/landline phones, electricity, gas and insurance, Mobikwik said in a release. Users can park money, up to Rs 50,000 (around the 800 US dollar) into the MobiKwik digital wallet and make hassle free payments for multiple transactions in only one click, it said.
"MobiKwik on Windows offers a fast and secure check-out experience for customers, something that is increasingly important as more customers shop and transact online," Microsoft India General Manager (Developer and Platform Evangelism) Joseph Landes said.
