According to our exclusive source, With ‘idea Money’ Idea Cellulars postpaid and prepaid customers can not only be able to deposit and withdraw cash from designated outlets, but they can also transfer money to any mobile phone in India. This money can be used to recharge mobile phone and utility bill payments, to transfer money to any bank account in India and to make payments at select shops.

The Mobile-Money services is already quite popular in Africa where the service has been available since many years. In India, Bharti Airtel and Vodafone India already has a similar service under Airtel money and Vodafone M-Pesa brand.

In 2011,  Idea Cellular got prepaid mobile wallet license and partners with Axis Bank to introduce “idea My Cash”  mobile money transfer services. ‘idea My Cash’ services was launched with very limited options, so not become popular among idea customers. Now idea cellular geared up to launch full-fledged mobile payment service dubbed as ‘idea Money’  like Airtel Money, which will be launched in next few days.

    AirTel Money is Good Idea….
    Its offers are also good!
    But But!!!! Its Services on Airtel Money is Very Poor!

    What are the services that irritated me on airtel money!
    1- When i gone to pay TNEB bill….by speaking with airtel agent @ airtel R.Centre
    (they fooled a customer, by telling yes for TNEB payments are possible)

    2- Reliance GSM & CDMA, Netconnect, Broadbands payments are not included.

    3- Always Idea Cellular Recharges are in Error modes

    4- Tata payments are also in Error modes

    5- Reliance Big Tv payments are not available.

    6- Train Ticket Booking Error always

    You guys won’t believe but a month ago I mailed Idea and criticized them on many fronts which included unavailability of balance transfer service, mobile payment system, outdated website interface and recharge portal etc. I suggested them to come with Mobile Payment service under the brand name !Money (i.e !dea Money) or !Pay (!dea Pay). Now surprised to see that service is finally here.

    In that mail, explained and compared all other services offered by Airtel/Vodafone which Idea is lacking and why they are leading as compared to you. Called them an operator for just call, sms and data and nothing else. They replied that we currently don’t have such services but we will take note of it and in future you will have all the services (usual reply). Seems their IT team took it seriously. I know that they had planned it well before my mail but good to see !Money coming soon. :)
