Mobile Payments

Increase payment conversions and reduce your cost to collect funds with a simple, user-friendly, payment experience delivered straight to your customer’s mobile device.

What are Mobile Payments from Esendex?

Mobile Payments from Esendex are an innovative new way for businesses to collect funds from customers. Instead of relying on traditional channels like post and manual calls from agents, Mobile Payments use the Mobile Journeys platform to target customers’ mobile devices, and deliver a personalised, fully branded payment environment.

As a fully PCI compliant platform, Mobile Payments provide both customers and businesses with the confidence that any payments are being made in the most secure way possible, while at the same time providing the convenience of a self-service platform which can be used at any time or place.

Do Mobile Payments work?

Mobile Payments are a proven way to increase payments when compared to traditional forms of payment collections like post and payments over the telephone.

We took a sample group of 14,000 customers and found that just over 5,000 (38.2%) of them went on to make a payment.

Who can use Mobile Payments?

Here are just some of the industries that can benefit from more engaging payment journeys.

Financial Services

Collecting payments from customers in the financial sector can often be extremely challenging. In many cases, the customer does not have the means to pay or simply refuses to.

Mobile payments provide an engaging platform which increase the chances of a payment being made, by providing an easy to use, self-serve environment which can be used at any place and time:

Examples include:

  • Overdue debt reminder/payment
  • Regular loan repayments
  • Insurance premium collections

Public Sector

In the face of seemingly endless cutbacks, organisations in the public sector must maximise their opportunities to take payments, while at the same time reducing their cost to serve.

Mobile payments can help with this by providing a fully automated payment service, which is cheaper to run than traditional communication channels like post.

Examples include:

  • Council tax collection
  • Public housing rent collection
  • Healthcare/dental treatment collection


Tools like contactless payment and Apple Pay have made it easier for customers to quickly and easily make payments in store, but improvements for remote transactions have been a little slower to arrive.

Using a Mobile Payment in conjunction with a Mobile Journey will make it easier to introduce customers to products and services, and then seamlessly take payment.

Examples include:

  • Store card collections
  • Transaction processing


Every person who owns or rents a home in the UK will have to pay a utility bill, but making sure that they all pay can be troublesome when relying on communication tools like post.

Using a digital channel like Mobile Payments to prompt payment, and then provide a means to make payment as part of the same interaction is a proven way to increase payments, and make significant cost savings.

Examples include

  • Direct Debit setup
  • Overdue payment collections

Delve a little deeper – read the Esendex Mobile Payments eBook

The time to switch from a traditional payment receipt system to a digital, self-serve one is now! Customers no longer prefer the convenience of a collection system which can be used at any place and time, they expect it as a standard.

In our eBook (The Problem with Payments) we explore the negative impact of non-collection in UK markets, and the strategies which can be used (via more engaging mobile-focused communication channels) to maximise customer payments and reduce risk for businesses.
