Nets and HP introduce PDA-payments channel to Singapore

29 April 2003  |  3501 views  |  0 Nets and HP introduce PDA-payments channel to Singapore

Singapore's Network for Electronic Transfers (Nets) has teamed up with Hewlett-Packard to introduce a PDA channel for consumer-to-business mobile transactions.

The new PDA payment system uses HP iPAQ H3800, H3900 and H5400 PDAs that can connect to the Internet via island-wide General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) mobile data networks or Wi-Fi wireless LAN technology available in offices and 'hot spots' around Singapore.

The system accepts PDA VCard and credit card payments using eNETS Web interfaces. PDA CashCard payment requires users to attach a Tactel Blue 410 or 430 smart card reader to their PDA and download a free eWallet (PDA version) from the Nets' Web site.

The system can be used either by consumers with their own PDAs or by businesses that issue PDAs to roaming staff who accept payment away from offices or storefronts.

Nets director for business development, Jocelyn Ang, comments: "The PDA payment system frees businesses of all kinds to transact with customers any time, any place and from any location. It provides a convenient, light-weight and secure way for consumers making payments, especially to businesses with delivery services, organising road shows or operating mobile locations."

Local mobile software solutions company CEOne is the first merchant adopting the new PDA payment system. The company is using the PDA payment system for CEO-Match, a PDA-based business education game that teaches entrepreneurship and management and is offered on-the-road at seminars and business workshops.
