Accra (Ghana), March 18, 2010
Zain, a leading telecom operator across the Middle East and Africa, has launched its award winning mobile commerce service which allows customers to use their mobile phones like a mobile wallet in Ghana.
Zain’s Zap customers can use their mobile phones to pay for goods and services and conduct banking services regardless of the type of handset they use, a statement said.
Zap provides the most comprehensive and accessible package of m-commerce features currently available anywhere in the world, according to the statement.
Zain Ghana is the seventh Zain mobile operation to launch Zap following the successful implementation of the service in Kenya, Malawi, Niger, Sierra Leone, Tanzania and Uganda.
“Once again, Zain is creating a wonderful world where customers can move about freely with their mobile phones transacting on goods and services,” said Philip Sowah, country manager of Zain Ghana.
“Our aim is to create an eco-system where Zap enriches lives by providing customers with increased security and flexibility, reducing the need to carry cash. The positive economic and social effects on the community we serve will be abundant,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
