Much Faster Mobile Payments Pygg
Aussie Start-up Pygg is giving the banks a run for their money and is Faster At Mobile Payments, No Matter Who You Bank With. Paying with the new Pygg app is faster than any other app on the market. It’s simple, instant payments to any Australian mobile number Sending money has never been easier, regardless of who you bank with
There’s something about mobile banking apps that is really enticing. You think “wow…my bank really is mobile
and progressive” but when it comes to paying your friends – different banks don’t get along. To pay a friend you
get a text message, you need to click a link, you need some type of net banking code, and the person on the
other end actually has to remember your mobile number. Now, what’s the point in going cashless with a banking
app when cash is actually easier?
Pygg solves the real problem because it sits above the banks – anyone can use Pygg, no matter who they bank
with. The launch of the new Pygg iPhone App makes social payments, like paying someone back for lunch,
faster and simpler than cash.
By drawing straight from your contact list to allow instant payments to any of your friends with their mobile
number, email address or Twitter handle, Pygg takes the pain out of payments between friends.
“It is about time sending money to a friend was not only cashless, but liberated from archaic banking speak like
BSBs, account numbers and net banking codes. These days everyone has a mobile phone and everyone has
their friends number in their contacts. We have made sending money to a friend as easy as sending them a text,
regardless of who they bank with.” says Peter Crowe, Pygg’s CEO.
At Pygg we are constantly striving to make cashless transactions among friends as simple and fun as possible.
We don’t only innovate for our customers, our customers are, in fact, always teaching us new ways to use Pygg.
Charity payments, pocket money, tipping waiters, bets between friends, office coffee runs. We’re building new
products as we speak to bring Pygg to life in new and innovative ways.
