As we move to a more cashless society, repaying a friend usually involves a tedious bank transaction.
But what if it could be as easy as sending a text?
Working with the Optus Pay team, we created a way to send money between Optus customers via SMS. How? By leveraging the XXX technology, we were able to link mobile numbers to their associated Optus accounts. We could then add or deduct funds from their monthly Optus bill.
We failed to get the traction we wanted to justify an MVP launch, so it’s been banished to the graveyard.
