zoompass-bbVirgin Mobile has joined the rest of the party and now offer the ability to use Zoompass on their network. “Zoompass” is the joint venture between Rogers, Bell and TELUS that’s Canada’s first mobile payment service that allows their customers to send, receive and request money, check account balance, review transactions all by using your mobile phone.

As we’ve stated before, the app is free but the service isn’t. After registering the fees are as follows: receive money and add funds from a bank account is free. There is a $0.50 charge send money and withdraw finds to a bank account and a $10 will be charged for any insufficient funds.

Nathan Rosenberg, CMO of Virgin Mobile Canada said “We’re always on the lookout for breakthroughs that will help our customers get more from their phone. Zoompass is a perfect example of innovation that works for people, making it easy and fast to turn their mobile phones into a virtual wallet. In fact, I have some friends that owe me cash. I’m going to get them to Zoom me immediately!”

Zoompass also works on Bell, Rogers, TELUS, Fido, PC Mobile, and Solo Mobile… but not Koodo yet.
