NatWest promote e-mail payment system with Centrepoint
Published on 2 December 2002, by howardlake
Centrepoint is the latest charity to benefit from a tie-in with an online micropayment system company.
Micropayment companies are clearly keen to work with charities to launch or promote their products. Ymogen.com launched with Sense, the deafblind charity. BT Click and Give launched with Tommy's the baby charity and ChildLine. Now NatWest is promoting its FastPay service with Centrepoint.
NatWest describes FastPay as "an electronic wallet [which] you can use to send and receive money via an e-mail address or mobile phone." The bank has teamed up with London free paper Metro to run a prize competition promoting FastPay and the fact that it is helping to raise funds for Centrepoint. For every £20 FastPay CASH gift sent from 1 November to 25 December, FastPay will donate £2 to Centrepoint up to a maximum of £30,000.
You can find the competition, which closes at midnight on 2 December 2002, at Metro.
