BigPond’s mobile shopping service is accessible for Telstra customers through the BigPond Mobile Portal and at http://m.shop.bigpond.com for people on other carriers. The site is designed to work on a range of web-capable handsets, from the lower end 2G phones through to 3G handsets.
No data charges apply for Telstra Next G Mobile users and the service runs on a certified secured payment system.
Users can browse and buy products from categories such as sporting memorabilia and electronics to baby products and kitchenware. Gifts like magazine subscriptions and theme park tickets can also be purchased through a mobile phone without the worry of delivery before Christmas.
“Selected items, like a Giant Twister Beach Towel or the Tonic Poppy Body Care Gift Box, will be delivered to many areas within Australia in time for Christmas if ordered by December 18,” says Telstra.
Telstra’s Group Managing Director, Justin Milne, said, “With Australians now using their mobiles for watching video, reading news, looking for directions and generally living their lives on the go, it’s great that we’ve now opened the doors to our own purpose-built mobile shopping service in time for Christmas. A department store in the palm of your hand sounds way more appealing than battling the last-minute Christmas crowds.”
