airbank is a virtual payment portal that allows individuals to purchase airtime (e-pins), make both online and offline payments, convert airtime to cash by simply sending a SMS or email or via the website.
the airbank system works just like paypal, liberty reserve. only this time anyone who creates an airbank account can pay for goods by using their mobile phone as the cash point.
the portal should be able to host epins (airtime codes of various networks) and would require a client to send specific codes through sms to make orders and execute transactions. pls note that transactions can also be done via the web portal and via email
i want individuals to also trade off their already purchased epins to fund their airbank accounts and other airbank accounts. ie. a registered user/ airbank account holder can use call airtime on his phone to make payments by converting it to his airbank through the use of specific sms coded instructions which will inturn instruct the mobile network to deduct the airtime value traded from the users phone line account which will inturn be credited to thier airbank account.
funds in airbank account can be made transferable to real bank accounts of the individuals on demand. which means our service can communicate with our banks portal to make payments. also users should be able to fund their airbank accounts through bank payments. i.e funds deposited to our account would require the individual to input the bank information and teller information in required fields for us to determine the validity of the payments.
also a gaming portal will be built alongside the airbank. as only users who have airbank accounts and have purchased e-pins from us can enjoy the bonuses of the game portal. the game portal is a casino style game portal that allows individuals to input the e-pin code that they have purchased to gain access to a list of games that correspond with the cost of the code. ie. the interactive casino style gaming portal will display list of games but when the user decides to play a game he has to input the exact e-pin worth of the game to be played and his airbank account user login details. the epin inserted will be verified on our airbank portal and if confirmed the list of games that comply with the epin value will be presented and, access to only one chosen game will be granted. if the user wishes to play more games he will be required to purchase the “game access” by making payment through his airbank account or inputting another e-pin. also every game played comes with a cash reward that varies based on the difficulty and amount worth of the game. this cash will be remitted to the individuals airbank account only if the user is able to beat the game. the online gaming portal should be able to adapt to a mobile phone environment… meaning the site should be mobile friendly if a user accesses it via a mobile phone. games can be played off a web browser and can be downloaded to mobile phone or pc if user decides. however the user has the option to play for fun (demo mode)or play for cash/money (live mode). the user can play for fun offline as well as online. but playing for money/cash requires user to be online so that game difficulty, activities and conditions can be monitored casino style.
