United Bank collaborating with Ethiopian Airlines in the E-Commerce dynamism
United Bank, a partner with Ethiopian in facilitating E-commerce (payment) to e-tickets sales embarked on a new payment development that took the existing service of selling the airlines e-tickets on the Bank’s digital platform to a new and higher level.
As a result, the e-ticket selling process now enables customers to book and effect payment via a Straight Through Processing (STP) interfacing. The new enhanced system has upgraded new features that automatically interfaced with Ethiopian e-ticketing system. Accordingly, when a customer books at Ethiopian by using ET Mobile App (that can be downloaded from play or apple store); the reservation will hit the bank’s system instantly. Later, when customer pays using United Bank’s multi channel services (i.e. Pay@Mobile, Pay@Internet, Pay@Branches, etc.), Ethiopian Airlines will be notified right away on payment confirmation and then the eticket will be issued by Ethiopian to the customer.
This digital payment system offers a one-point solution for all e-ticket needs of passengers i.e. whether the customer reserves its seat via telephone (using Ethiopian Airlines Global Call Center – GCC) or Ethiopian Airlines Mobile APP. Individuals and businesses will profit from this unique and convenient service that saves time and cost.
United Bank is a share company that stands among the few prominent private Banks in Ethiopia, operating all over the country with more than 230 branches. United Bank provides an array of banking services that include: conventional, interest free and multi-Channel banking products through various service channels that include Agency Banking, ATMs, POS, Internet banking and Mobile.
