New Zealand Mobile Ops to Launch "Payforit"

New Zealand’s mobile network operators have agreed to introduce a mobile payment service called "Payforit." The Payforit "Trusted Mobile Payments Framework” apparently is based on a similar service, also called Payforit, that has been operating in Britain since 2006, and is expected to support micro-payments, primarily.

The New Zealand service, like its British counterpart, will be managed by accredited payment intermediaries but will not require linkage to a banking account or a credit card. It is likely that the service will aim to attract content providers, since micro-payments for content consumed on the phone are a logical proposition.


Accredited payment intermediaries for the U.K. Payforit service might provide an indication of what sorts of entities might support the New Zealand Payforit.
