HÀ NỘI — MobiFone has sent messages to its customers announcing that the operator stopped providing services with e-wallet Vimo from June 7.
Vimo e-wallet is run by Vimo Technology Joint Stock Company. It is a mobile payment service for electricity, water, internet and telephone bills and money transfer.
Representatives of Vimo e-wallet told Thanh Niên (Youth) newspaper that the deal had allowed MobiFone’s customers, who use feature phones, not smartphones, to use Vimo by using USSD code 234#.
However, few MobiFone subscribers used the Vimo wallets. Therefore, to cut operating costs, the two sides decided to halt the service.
For customers who do use Vimo wallet via USSD, they need to download the Vimo application on smartphones to continue accessing the service.
Customers who use smartphones can continue to use the service without any changes.
