BlackBerry BBM is now integrated with Quickteller services from African digital payments and e-commerce provider Interswitch. A new app called Quickteller has been launched for Android, BlackBerry and iOS to facilitate money transfers and airtime recharging on BBM.
With this partnership, BBM users with an account with the Nigerian bank will be able to make a request for money, airtime and payment for services from their BBM contacts. Of late, BlackBerry has been working to push e-commerce in BBM. The Canadian firm recently integrated PayPal into its platform.
