Best Buy to Host Bill-Pay Kiosks


TIO Networks Corp. has reached a deal with Best Buy to bring self-service bill payment and financial services kiosks to the CE retail giant's locations in several markets throughout the country.

The machines, which are Internet-connected and include touchscreens, are already installed in the Atlanta, Las Vegas, Miami and Phoenix markets, TIO said.

“We are thrilled to provide the retail chain with the largest volume of wireless customer activations the opportunity to offer bill payment services as an extension of the wireless services”, Hamed Shahbazi, chairman and CEO of TIO Networks, said in a statement.

“Consumers who pay bills in person have traditionally tended to pay such bills in the same location where they acquired their phones. With this initiative, Best Buy now offers a full complement of expedited bill payment services for the nation's largest wireless operators.”
