The Nigerian payment industry is witnessing a significant transformation as pan-African financial services group, United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc in conjunction with Unified Payment Systems Limited introduces “PayAttitude” a faster and seamless, contactless payment solution that never fails.
PayAttitude is a Near Field Communication (NFC) tag, with an internal chip which works on NFC-enabled POS terminals at designated partner locations across Nigeria.
The new payment solution makes it possible for a customer to make payments for goods and services with an adhesive payment tag attachable to mobile phones or flat surfaces. It is as easy as tapping the phone against a PoS terminal. Highly convenient for retail transactions, it perfectly suits the lifestyle of mobile phone users.
Speaking on this development, Yinka Adedeji, UBA’s Divisional Head for e-Banking explained that “the tag can be obtained from designated UBA business offices.
He said: “We have the PayAttitude Debit and PayAttitude Prepaid depending on a customer’s preference. The introduction of this technology only reinforces our commitment to the creation of innovative payment solutions”
According to Adedeji, a major benefit of the new payment solution is that all payments are always 100% successful with or without network connectivity, thereby eliminating the issue of “declined” payments on POS terminals.
