Visa Mobile today elaborated on its service for Google’s Android mobile operating system.
The credit giant said today that Chase Visa cardholders will have exclusive access to the software for an unspecified limited period. The software enables activities such as receiving notifications about transactions, obtaining offers from merchants and using Google mapping software to locate nearby ATMs.
Initial supporting merchants include 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, Bonefish Grill, Jos. A. Bank, Lenovo, Overstock.com, Planet Hollywood and various e-commerce sites.
“The mobile channel represents an exciting opportunity for Chase to deliver added value, services and information to our card holders,” said Rob Rosenblatt, general manager, Chase Card Services, in a statement today.
Also in mobile banking news today, Motorola said it’s deploying M-Wallet software through Union Mobile Pay. Union is a joint venture of China Mobile Communications and China UnionPay.
“Consumers can personalize financial needs such as account inquiries, money transfers, bill payments, utility payments and e-ticketing on their mobile phones, which will eliminate the need to go to banks or carry bank cards. In addition to mobile banking, the platform also provides business-to-consumer solutions for merchants that include merchant membership cards, electronic couponing and prepaid cards,” Motorola said.
