Ooredoo Maldives and Rakuten Viber launch mobile money partnership – Developing Telecoms

Ooredoo Maldives has partnered with Rakuten Viber to enable customers in the Maldives to easily send and receive money transfers on Viber’s m-Faisaa messaging platform.
The service is aimed at providing a reliable, convenient and safe money transfer solution for individual customers and small business owners of online shops, small cafés and corner shops.
Viber’s m-Faisaa is a widely used messaging platform in the local community which facilitates communication with friends and family as well as allowing small businesses to exchange bill payment slips shared by their customers.
However, with the increased usage of online services and innovative technology, scams and forged transaction slips have become a serious major issue. Ooredoo’s partnership with Rakuten Viber to enable money transfer via m-Faisaa ensures security and reliability without having to share their personal information or account details.
Once the customer successfully makes a transfer, the system auto generates instant confirmation to the sender as well as the receiver, which helps eliminate the risk of tampering with transaction receipts. Additionally, users also enjoy the convenience and advantage of the chat extension, which enables payments within the one-on-one chat between buyer and seller without any need for the user to leave the app. 
“Viber being a widely used platform in our community, this partnership will accelerate the digital adoption and the use of digital financial platforms”, said Ooredoo Maldives Managing Director & Chief Executive Officer Khalid Al-Hamadi.
“This is a good example of Viber’s determination to move forward as an all-in-one app. Beyond call and messaging, Viber is a platform that enables its users to conveniently perform these payment transactions without having to worry about their security and privacy being compromised,” said David Tse, Rakuten Viber Senior Director for APAC.
M-Faisaa customers can now cash in to their digital wallets online via BML, SBI, MIB and through m-Faisaa agents. Customers of any network can register to m-Faisaa via Ooredoo’s app and use all of its services such as utility bill payments, money transfers on App and via Viber.
