I was unaware that the big 3 Canadian wireless carriers are in a joint venture together. Bell, Rogers and TELUS own a company called “EnStream” and their mandate is to “enable every mobile device user to access their electronic money, identification and other personal information for transacting – at any time and any place.”
On June 15th customers on Bell, Solo, PC Mobile, Rogers, Fido or TELUS will have the ability to send, receive and request money using your mobile phone. This service will not be under the EnStream name, but a sub company called “Zoompass“. You can register online for your free Zoompass account to your bank account and credit and start using at your free will.
There are fees for this service though, to register an account, receive money and add funds from a bank account is free. There will be a $0.50 charge send money and withdraw finds to a bank account. A 10 spot will be charged for any insufficient funds.
Once you do all the activations and preform the mobile money transfers you can expect to get a text message confirmation receipt.
More to come soon.
