OCBC launches mobile keyboard to enable fund transfer from any app

Singapore’s OCBC Bank has rolled out a mobile keyboard that will allow customers make electronic payments to another account in Singapore from whatever app they currently use.

The new feature, dubbed OCBC Keyboard, will only be available to customers using Android 4.4 operating system.

Fund transfers can be initiated through the OCBC Pay Anyone e-payment service or PayNow.

In order to transfer funds, users need to enter the name and mobile number of the recipient and a one-time password for authentication.

OCBC Bank head of e-business in Singapore Aditya Gupta said: “With OCBC Keyboard, we are embedding payments in our customers’ lives and making it completely frictionless for them to pay while they go about (with) everyday tasks like chatting on WhatsApp, sending an e-mail, browsing items on Carousell or browsing the Internet.”
