    Volksbank is another bank that has joined the list of Oskar’s partners. Holders of Volksbank credit cards can now take advantage of Oskar’s Mobile Payment service. The service allows Oskar’s customers to make payments and activate new services in a safe and convenient manner at any time and any place, just by using their mobile phone and Eurocard/MasterCard, Maestro, VISA or VISA Electron card issued by Volksbank, eBanka or Komerční banka, or American Express card issued by Komerční banka.

    The Mobile Payment service is the most affordable and most convenient way of making payments for telecommunication services provided by Oskar. It allows customers to administer their accounts by using their handsets without the assistance of intermediaries. All payments are credited to the customer’s account within a few minutes. The customer is informed of the transaction result immediately by SMS. The service is based on SIM Toolkit and SMS platform and therefore it is very safe. Every transaction requires authorizations by both the provider and the partner bank. The Mobile Payment service is available to both prepaid and postpaid subscribers.

    In order to take advantage of the convenience of the Mobile Payment service, customers need a new type of SIM with expanded menu. Oskar’s existing customers may ask for a free-of-charge SIM replacement by calling OskarLinka at *077 (if dialed from a handset) or 0800 77 00 77. SIM replacement takes a maximum of two working days. New customers will receive the enhanced SIM by calling 0800 777 777.

    „We appreciate the innovative and accommodating approach of MUZO and all the partner banks. The improvement of the service, which was launched by Oskar last year as one of the first of its kind in Europe, is a result of our joint efforts,” says Mario Mele, Vice President, Service Development at Český Mobil. “We are ready to extend our cooperation to other financial institutions and make the service available also to holders of credit cards issued by these institutions,” added Mele.

    The Mobile Payment service enables:

    • Oskarta replenishment
    • Payment of invoices
    • Increasing the Account Spending Limit
    • Advance payments
    • Activation of roaming and International Calls upon deposit
    • Access to postpaid account information

      Detailed information on the Mobile Payment service can be found at www.oskarmobil.cz under a special link in the Products and Services section.
