SMS Banking grows

Salome Waqaliti (Bsp Communications Officer)
Monday, November 26, 2012

Mobile phone users who bank with BSP are now Fiji's fastest evolving banking customers.

With the added convenience of simply calling *277# to check your balance, account history, top up mobile phones, pay bills and more, customers are better off.

BSP invested and successfully became the first bank in Fiji to introduce SMS Banking. "We realise the huge impact this has made on the ease of doing banking for our customers and we are pleased to see how they are now adapting to this new way of banking," said Mr McCarthy.

Since its inception in early 2011, BSP's SMS Banking customer numbers have grown rapidly and trends have shown mobile phone top up transactions as the most used service. "It's only natural that mobile phone users are taking up the most economical and convenient way to keep phones loaded with credit," remarked Mr McCarthy.

"We've seen a reduction in walk in customers for simple banking needs because they are now serving themselves either via their mobile phones or using other BSP electronic banking services," complimented Mr McCarthy.

Customer coaching for SMS Banking or Internet Banking are available from any BSP Branch or by calling customer care consultants on 132 888.

SMS Banking has effectively provided reliability, convenience and timely banking services at the mere touch of a button and customers of all ages are now enjoying the service. "All it takes is a first attempt for a customer to appreciate this service," challenged Mr McCarthy. "You won't regret it."

To register for SMS Banking, customers can simply call 132 888 and be ready with primary security details in order to get connected. For a detailed, step by step guide to SMS banking, log onto www.bsp.com.fj
