Jordan Telecom launches e-payment gateway
Jordan Telecom (JT) and e-dimension have launched several new services to its customers through the internet. Customers starting from Sept 21, 2003 can pay their phone bills through the first e-payment gateway provided by e-dimension, a subsidiary of Jordan Telecom.
JT customers can also subscribe to new services and modify the features of their line through JT's Internet customer care service. These two initiatives mark a turning point in the delivery of e-services and signify the start of full e-commerce opportunities in Jordan, passing a significant milestone in Jordan's bid to become a regional ICT hub and the delivery of e-government services.
The Jordan Telecom Group, through its subsidiary e-dimension, developed the e-payment gateway to link merchants with Jordanian banks. This secure mechanism for accepting and clearing credit card payments electronically has enabled Jordan Telecom to implement its own online bill payment solution.
In order to boost the demand for the gateway and bill payment service e-dimension will be launching, in partnership with the Jordan National Bank, the e-dimension MasterCard, which will be available free of charge to the Jordan Telecom Group's top 100,000 customers. — (menareport.com)
