Ok! So on October 1, we unveiled our new look website and presented a first time opportunity to you, our dear customers to use and test the site. We received loads of great feedback via email, Twitter and Facebook and we plugged them into the new look site. Now the site has been up for a couple of weeks and we would like to share with you the new features, whistles and “ghen ghen” that it offers as against the old site. So hold on to your ATM cards as you just might be tempted to carry out a transaction or two!
Ok, here we go! ((((Drumroll)))
1. A New Uncluttered GUI Layout
An “at-a-glance” series of well organised & labelled square and rectangular coloured boxes which serve as quick shortcut icons to the specific feature function sought such as Register for new users, Sign in for existing users, Mobile Recharge, Receive Money, Make Payments, FAQs, Facebook & Twitter links etc. Looks simple and pretty. No more text clutter and greatly reduces scroll time.
2. A New Powerful Search Button Feature (of Life)
A fully intelligent & robust Search field and button which turns up desired results when you search for any service, biller name, payment option or payment/customer code using any direct or remote keyword. For instance, if you type in “Subscription”, you get a drop down list of all possible subscription based payments at a glance; then when you hit “Search” you get a result list of all the merchants and billers that offer subscription based payments in batches of 5, so you can click through or just click on the biller you are looking for.
This makes it waaaaaay easier to find any of our listed merchants and billers especially if you are not sure they’re listed or how they are listed on the site. This feature is designed to reduce scroll time to the barest minimum and take you straight to the service you want to use.
So if you are not sure, just type it in and hit “Search”.
3. A Select a Service Category Drop Down List
Gone is the long list of tabled categories which require scrolling and….
and a pair of glasses.
Quickteller now has a drop down Select a Service Category List which offers you a list of services and billers according to category. This is another way you can search for billers on Quickteller. You click on the desired category and viola, you get taken to the biller category landing page with each biller represented by its very own square.
4. Easily Recognisable Biller Icons
Again, gone are the texts as each Biller is assigned its own square box icon with their logo displayed for very easy recognition by you! So perhaps you do not know the biller by name you would know it by its logo and colours. This is a plus for merchants and billers as this also helps to grab the attention of visitors/users to the fact that your business is listed on Quickteller….for free.
5. An Editable Frequent Services List
Now when you sign in as a registered user, you immediately land on your Frequent Services page which basically lists out your frequently paid services by biller. So for instance if you have previously bought airtime you will see a list of the different purchases with the phone number (Customer ID) and Service option arranged according to the mobile telephone providers.
Even better you can Edit the “Service Option” field to enter the recipient’s name. Just click “Edit”. So going forward if you need to buy airtime for your “Dad” or “Mum” or “Tunde” your younger bro or your “Gateman” there is no need to consult your phone book, just click “Pay” against the recipient and enter the amount.
This is a cool benefit of full registration on Quickteller. Just do it already!
6. Payment History
In addition, when logged in as a registered user, you can view a history of all your payments made from My Frequent Services page. Clicking “History” against a particular payment brings up a Payment History page for that service. The page allows you set the date range of transactions history you would like to view – This month, Last month, Three months, Six months or One year. Each option automatically gives you the payment history by date with a time stamp and amount, with the total number of payments and their value displayed at the top of the table. So no more confusion as to whether or not you paid that bill or made that transfer. Neat, huh?
Ok! I am afraid we have run out of time on today’s episode of The Life & Times of Sabinus Serrano.
