BNP Paribas and Orange to introduce mobile banking service

BNP Paribas and Orange will be launching BNP Paribas
Mobile, a mobile-phone banking service.

The new service allows BNP Paribas customers use a range of
mobile banking services to manage their accounts on a daily basis.

Both Groups want to support their customers in using the new services, by
combining their experience in their own particular fields of excellence,
namely, banking services for BNP Paribas and mobile telephony for Orange.

With the My Transfers application, BNP Paribas customers can send money to
someone from their mobile free of charge, even if the other person is not a BNP
Paribas customer.

With the KIX service, BNP Paribas
customers can pay for daily purchases securely using the NFC based mobile
Cityzi service. Contactless mobile payment is already available in Nice and
Strasbourg and will gradually be rolled out across France in 2012, for example
Marseille in the first quarter of 2012, Caen in the second quarter, and Lille
and Bordeaux in the second half of the year.

BNP Paribas is determined to support this rollout by
giving NFC payment terminals to its retail clients as well as to all its
private customers who have Cityzi enabled mobiles.

BNP Paribas Mobile features a selection of 8 smartphones – 3 of which are
Cityzi enabled (Acer Liquid Express, BlackBerry Curve 9360 and Samsung Galaxy
S2) – along with 4 packages.

is offering 1, 2 or 5 hours mobile calling packages or 24/7 unlimited calling.
It services include unlimited sharing, unlimited SMS/MMS, unlimited calls to
any operator evenings and weekends depending on the package chosen, Internet
and email access and others.
