Called Zoompass, the new service will apparently be managed by EnStream, a Toronto-based company owned by the above mentioned carriers.
Zoompass should be available starting June 15, for the subscribers of Rogers, Fido, Bell, Telus, Solo Mobile and PC Mobile.
Reportedly, users will be able to send, request and receive money via their mobile phones.
You’ll have to register on the Zoompass website (not active yet) with your credit card details. After a money transfer operation is completed, a confirmation receipt will be received via SMS.
Although the registration and use of Zoompass are free, there will be small fees for withdrawing funds to an account ($0.50).
