Visa has announced that they are developing an app for the Android App Store that will allow customers to receive Alerts, receive targeted Offers based on recent sales, and use a Locator to find local stores that accept Visa. Users will be allowed to pick and choose from the three options (Alerts, Offers, and Locator) and only enable the ones they want. Users will also be able to cancel out from any of the three options at any time.
Visa is also working with Nokia on the ability to make payments through your mobile device. The Nokia 6212 Classic will have the ability to “make contactless payments, remote payments, money transfers, as well as receive alerts and notifications.” The phone will be available starting next month to financial institutions, and to the general public sometime after that.
