China Mobile’s telecom brand, Zong, has partnered with United Bank Limited under its O2O project to establish a service that enables subscribers to recharge their accounts and pay bills online.
This collaboration between Zong and with UBL allows Zong customers to make payments via an Etisalat/UBL powered portal using their debit or credit cards (powered by MasterCard/VISA) to avail the online recharge or bill payment option regardless of the card issuing bank.
Expressing his delight on the occasion, Sikandar Naqi, chief public relation officer, Zong said, “At Zong, we believe in continuous progress and innovation, which in turn means better services and facility for our esteemed customers. This new billing system in partnership with UBL is just another example of our dedication towards providing better and time efficient services to our subscribers. Through such endeavors we show our commitment towards taking the telecom services in Pakistan to the next level.”
Speaking on the occasion, Syed Taha Afzal, Head Consumer Finance, UBL, said “We are pleased to announce that UBL is the first bank to offer a facility like this and with this collaboration we have opened new avenues in the payment industry. As a merchant acquirer, UBL will offer cardholders unmatched convenience with regard to Zong post bill payment options and Zong recharge.”
Mr. Afzal also added that the most attractive feature of this agreement was that this service is not limited to UBL cardholders and can be availed by any VISA/MasterCard Debit or Credit cardholder.
