MTS: NO NEED TO CARRY PLASTIC CARDS ANYMORE
Monday, August 29, 2016
MTS announces the launch of its mobile app “MTS Money”, which enables customers to upload virtual banking cards, tickets for public transportation in Moscow and discount coupons to their NFC-enabled smartphones.
After installing the service on the smartphone via Google Play, MTS subscribers will be able to upload their “MTS Money” banking card into the app or register a new one without visiting MTS offices. The balance of the card can be replenished directly through the app from the cards of other banks, from a subscriber's mobile account or through MTS payment terminals. From that moment on, customers will be able to pay for goods and services in any store throughout the world, equipped with contactless POS readers, using only their smartphones. Over time, customers will be able to upload banking cards of other Russian banks as well.
