Tweet money to your friends via icicibankpay

Tweet money to your friends
Now ICICI bank customers can transfer money to their friends and family via Twitter. This is for the first time in india that people can transfer money via a social media website.

The service called icicibankpay is available for all ICICI bank savings account holders who have their mobile number registered with the bank. The process of registration and sending money is quite easy and simple.

How to register for the service:

  • You need to follow ICICI Bank on Twitter @icicibank
  • Send message to @icicibank in format : #reg<space><mobile no. registered on ICICI Bank>
  • You will receive an OTP(one time password)
  • Send OTP to @icicibank, in format: #regotp<space><OTP>

Once you are registered you can transfer money to anyone on twitter by sending him/her a message in format: #Pay<space><Receiver’s Twitter account><space><Amount>

Besides transferring funds you can also recharge your prepaid mobile, check account balance and also view last three transactions. For more info about the service visit icici bank’s website.

This is a good move by ICICI bank to make banking easier and convenient for its customer. Now we will have to see how other banks come up with such services in India.

If you are an ICICI bank account holder, go tweet money to your friends and family and let us know your experience in comments.
