Short of cash? Pay from your Lumia

Say goodbye to the hassle of weeding through your payment cards the next time you are paying for your phone bills or are waiting at the cash counter for a renewal when you have these fabulous payment solutions for your Lumia.

Digital wallets are an easier way to pay for your coffee or recharge your cable connection from your Lumia, the next time you run out of cash. But be sure to load it regularly and get relieved from carrying dozens of credit or debit cards in your actual wallet.

Here are some of the popular online and cashless wallets available for you to shop regularly or pay your electricity bills.



Memorizing, storing and taking care of all your credit cards, vouchers, gift cards and other retail cards and their information is the built-in Wallet feature on your Lumia. There is no need for you to be juggling with so much information when all of this gets neatly stored in your digital wallet.

A secure place for you to store all digital versions of cards, Windows Store and Xbox gift cards, and more, Wallet knows how to make your life simpler. Starting up is simple and requires you to sign in with your Microsoft account.

There is a lot that this deep pocketed wallet can store for you, such as:

  • Credit or debit cards
  • Boarding passes
  • Event tickets
  • Loyalty cards
  • Membership cards
  • Vouchers
  • Windows Store and Xbox gift cards

It’s time to swap your collection of cards this time, for something that you carry with you always-your Lumia aided with these apps.



Recharge your mobile and pay for your internet and cable subscription on the go, thanks to this popular mobile wallet app from India. What’s more is that you can pay for your electricity bills, gas connection and even insurance installments via the app. It also lets you transfer money online to your friends and family.

The money stored in this app (added by you earlier) lets you also shop online from the range of portals like eBay, BookMyShow, Dominos, redBus, etc and available exclusive offers.



A smart offering for readers from USA, Canada, Australia and the UK, the Stocard app will help you store all your rewards cards on your Lumia. Using Stocard is easy and requires no registration. You can use it right after downloading the app enabling you to add rewards cards within seconds.

You have the option of choosing from over 900 preset discount cards and a wide range of popular stores such as Walgreens, Starbucks, Best Buy, AutoZone, Big Lots, Food Lion, Quiksilver, IKEA among many others. So don’t forget to have your Lumia’s screen scanned for a faster transaction the next time you are out eating or shopping.

Time for you to get rid of all that plastic junk eating space in your wallet, what say?



Our well known friend PayPal lets you send and request money on the go, on your Lumia. With this nifty app you can manage your account; check your balance, withdraw funds or view past transactions – anytime and anywhere just like you would on the PayPal website. You can also send money between other PayPal users and your friends.

The new ‘Local’ feature lets you find local merchants using PayPal Here™ service and thanks to this app you can pay them with PayPal.

Oxigen Wallet – Money Transfer & Recharge


Another prepaid wallet app from India, this one lets you recharge and pay for mobiles and your cable connection, data card subscriptions, electricity bills and much more.

Unlike other wallets, this is certified by Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and offers the ‘Instant Money Transfer’ feature thanks to a tie-up with National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI). Simply speaking it means you can transfer money to any mobile number (irrespective of its carrier) or to any bank account in India.

The best part is that there is no need for the receiver to have an Oxigen Wallet account.
