New Service Pay by SMS by Citi - Quick and Easy credit card payment


Athens, June 20, 2013.

Citi is introducing one more innovation in the Greek market, aiming to enhance customer service for credit card holders, making the payment of their credit cards even easier, faster and more secure.

The new service Pay by SMS is part of Citi Greece strategy for further improvement and upgrade of services and transactions through alternative channels.

This, unique in Greece, service, provides Citibank cards and Diners Club credit cards customers, who don’t maintain a bank account at Citibank, with the opportunity to pay their credit cards simply by sending an SMS, charging the bank account they keep in another bank in Greece. The new service is free of charge, available 24/7 and offers speed, easiness and security to clients wherever they are, whenever they need it.

Registration to the new service is available through Citiphone at 210 9290 190, at any Citibank branch or at Necessary requirements for client registration are mobile phone number and the IBAN of the client’s bank account at any bank in Greece. In this way, every time a client sends an SMS from the specific mobile phone number, he authorizes Citibank to charge the specific bank account provided in the SMS.

Following registration to the service, the client is informed on a monthly basis via a free of charge SMS on his credit card account data: pay date, new account balance and minimum due.
Now, Citibank and Diners Club credit card customers are enabled to carry out all their cards transactions via their mobile phones, starting with the activation, continuing with the direct information of the transactions and balances of their credit cards and concluding with payment facility.
