Monday 26 March 2018 | 12:27 CET | News
Telecom Italia has announced the details of a new mobile payment service developed by the Banca Sella Group called TIMpersonal that's been officially available in Italy since the start of March. The service takes the form of a virtual prepaid Mastercard card that combines a financial product with mobile services. After downloading the free TIMpersonal "powered by Hype" app, anyone over the age of 12 simply needs to take a selfie for recognition purposes to be able to use their smartphone to check bank balances, make peer to peer payments, pay in affiliated stores and top up their credit.
