Obopay Receives $29 Million for a Mobile Payment Service
July 13, 2007

Obopay raised $29 million from Societe Generale, Citi, AllianceBernstein L.P. and Richmond Global Cellular.

What does Obopay do?

Obopay is a mobile payment service.

VCU says:

Obopay is a mobile payment service, which means you can instantly get, send and spend money anywhere, anytime with anyone. They also provide a Prepaid MasterCard®.

Here is how it works. You first create an Obopay account and the individual you want to send money to will have an account also. You deposit money in your Obopay account, then you may send to another Obopay user. Since everyone receives a prepaid MasterCard they use the prepaid card to withdrawl money or spend using their Mastercard that is linked to their Obopay account.

While it is very interesting, a more interesting proposition would be paying directly with your mobile phone.

Take a look at Obopay.
