Abuja - Simply Pay, a local mobile money firm, has introduced a new innovation that enables individuals and corporate bodies to pay bills using their mobile phones.
The company said the technology was designed to give solutions to business challenges, individual concerns and unemployment issues in the country.
The chief executive officer of the company, Simeon Ononobi, explained that the new multi-purpose online payment application systems would conveniently help individuals and corporate bodies to carry out transactions.
He said with the introduction of the product, users could pay utility bills, school fees, bank transfers and air travel fares, among others, directly on their mobile phones.
Ononobi added that for every transaction carried out through Simple Pay, users will be charged one percent of the cost of the bills paid.
“We try to get people from Nigeria, who can help to take the company to the next level. It is a third party payment processor. With this solution, you can make any payment, including airline tickets, light and water bills and even tax payments,” said Ononobi.
“We are the only company in Nigeria that accepts international debit cards for payment. Today, we have the cheapest hotel booking application in the world. From the comfort of your home, you can book for a hotel accommodation. You can pay any kind of bill online, using our platform. It is fast and reliable," he said.
Omonobi added that payment of school fees had been made easy from the comfort of homes.
“We are connecting our platforms with the schools and only one per cent out of the total amount paid will be charged,” he said.
