Customers will also be able to buy mobile airtime credit and transfer money to bank accounts.

Having secured approval from Indonesia's central bank, the service - developed by BlackBerry with local financial institution PermataBank and AGIT Monitise Indonesia - the pilot is now imminent, with a full launch expected to follow.

Darren Sugden, CEO, Monitise Asia Pacific, says: "It is incredibly exciting that Indonesia is the first country in the world to develop a person-to-person payment service such as this. This launch is a ringing endorsement for how businesses with different commercial needs can collaborate in the fast-growing mobile, payments and banking space."
