Another mobile wallet from India, Oxigen Wallet, hits the Windows Phone Store

Oxigen Wallet is a popular mobile wallet service in India for money transfers, mobile and DTH subscription recharges, and bill payments. The prepaid wallet is approved by the Reserve Bank of India and is India's first non-bank wallet to have tied up with National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) for Instant Money Transfer.

The official Oxigen Wallet app for Windows Phone was released earlier this week. The app allows you to recharge subscriptions, pay bills, and buy stuff using the bank-grade secure and operator-agnostic mobile wallet. You also earn Oxigen Points on select transactions, and these reward points are further converted into money in your wallet.

The app allows you to transfer money to any mobile number on any network in India or to any bank account across India using IMPS or NEFT. You can send money to any mobile number even if it doesn't have Oxigen Wallet account. It's a neat way to quickly transfer money like when you intend to share a lunch bill between friends.

You can also recharge prepaid mobile for Vodafone, Airtel, Aircel, BSNL, Idea, Loop, MTNL, MTS, Reliance Mobile, Tata Docomo, Uninor, and Videocon. Along with that, you can also recharge for DTH subscriptions like Airtel, Reliance, Digital TV, Sun TV, Tata Sky, and Videocon d2h or data cards like MTS, Reliance NetConnect, and Tata Photon. You can pay postpaid mobile bills for Airtel, Tata Indicom, Vodafone, BSNL, Idea, Loop, Reliance Mobile, Tata Docomo, and MTS as well as electricity bills for BSES Rajdhani, BSES Yamuna, Tata Power DDL, Nesco, South Bihar Power, and North Bihar Power.

Using the app, you can load the wallet using IMPS, debit cards, and credit cards, and apart from payments within the app, you can use the mobile wallet service for payments at over 2000 online merchants like BookMyShow, eBay, Domino's, GoDaddy, IRCTC, etc.

Download the free Oxigen Wallet app for Windows Phone 7.x and Windows Phone 8 devices from the Windows Phone Store. Oxigen Wallet is a pretty good app to make payments in a smarter way, and competes with other popular virtual wallet services like Paytm and Mobikwik. How do you like the Oxigen Wallet app, and which is your preferred mobile wallet?
