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. Customers were able to SMS low value transactions between contacts to make payments which would then add or deduct funds from their monthly Optus bill.
After initial MVP testing, SMS Pay never made it to the public and now rests peacefully in the Yes Lab graveyard.
