BBM Money is launching in Indonesia through a partnership with PermataBank and Monitise. With BBM Money you have the ability to create and access a mobile money account from BlackBerry smartphone and make real-time payments to your BBM contacts.
BBM customers can create a BBM Money account with PermataBank and then start loading cash into the account through any of the 70,000 ATMs in Indonesia. After visiting a designated location to perform a one-time identity check, customers can then make secure payments to their BBM contacts and transfer money to other bank accounts using the app.
Customers can also pay for mobile airtime or prepaid SIM cards for their family and friends. Another innovative feature is that customers who actively conduct business through BBM can make payments immediately and securely. There is a vibrant trade taking place among groups within BBM in Indonesia.
