  • Certain embodiments of the disclosure will now be described more fully hereinafter with accompanying drawings and corresponding description in FIGS. 1-4. This disclosure may, however, be embodied in many different forms and should not be construed as limited to the embodiments set forth herein.
  • Overview
  • The disclosure relates to systems and methods for implementing mobile bill payment functionality in mobile commerce. In one implementation, a mobile commerce application program, also known as a mobile wallet or wallet app, can be downloaded or other otherwise implemented by a consumer and/or merchant via a mobile device or client device, such as a smartphone, cellphone, wearable computer, or tablet computer. The mobile commerce application program can integrate both payment and loyalty functionality for use by merchants and consumers to facilitate payment and/or loyalty/reward transactions for goods and/or services, administer loyalty/reward programs, and receive loyalty/reward credit for a variety of activities, including, for instance, visiting certain merchants during certain days and/or times as well as purchasing goods and/or services. For example, according to certain embodiments of the disclosure, a consumer can download a wallet app to his or her smartphone or other mobile device, input and store payment device information in the wallet app, and then use the wallet app to pay a merchant for a movie ticket by transmitting an indication from the smartphone or other mobile device to the merchant. Using the payment device information, loyalty/reward credit can be generated by the merchant and credited to the consumer via a loyalty/reward program account for visiting the movie theater during an off-peak date/time as well as purchasing the movie ticket. The wallet app can generate an output via the consumer's smartphone or mobile device to reflect the loyalty/reward credit to the consumer's associated loyalty/reward program account as well as an electronic receipt for the consumer's movie ticket purchase. In this manner, loyalty/reward programs can become easier to use for consumers since the mobile commerce application can electronically track credits and various activities by the consumer can earn the consumer additional loyalty/reward credits. Further, different types of consumer loyalty can be rewarded, such as based on visits, spending, performing any number of activities (e.g., sending a friend an email or text, joining a loyalty/reward program, trying something new or different, etc.), or for ad-hoc reasons (e.g., late merchant service).
  • In another implementation, one or more tools can be provided by a mobile commerce application program to merchants and consumers to build closer ties between them or otherwise connect them through increased and more focused communications. For example, according to certain embodiments of the disclosure, a restaurant merchant can access, via a point of sale (POS) device or client device, a customized mobile commerce application or wallet app that has been downloaded to a consumer's mobile device or client device. When the restaurant merchant wants to communicate with its customers about news, upcoming events, and new menu items, such as announcing a special wine and cheese event for frequent customers. The restaurant merchant can access one or more tools to send notifications or messages to certain selected consumers via the wallet app on consumer's mobile devices or client devices. The tools can facilitate access to demographic and consumer data (spending, visits, etc.); filter data based on the demographic data, consumer data, and demographic and/or consumer groups; manage communication preferences (email, texts, notifications, etc.); and apply consumer preferences to selected communications Consumers could be selected based on, for instance, the number of restaurant visits in the past 30 days. In this manner, the merchant can target certain groups of consumers with focused messages and marketing campaigns, and thereby increase or otherwise improve merchant-consumer contact.
  • In yet another implementation, a mobile commerce application program can provide customized merchant applications to different merchants. For example, a local restaurant merchant may want to customize a wallet app or mobile commerce application program for downloading to or otherwise accessing via a consumer's mobile device or client device. The merchant can access another mobile commerce application program and utilize one or more tools to, for example, upload a merchant business logo, select parameters for a loyalty/reward program, and select data fields for obtaining consumer information or asking consumer questions. In any instance, after the merchant has customized a wallet app, consumers can access or otherwise download the app to their respective mobile devices or client devices, and initiate communications with the merchant via the customized wallet app. In certain other embodiments, a multi-merchant app can be provided to consumers for download to or access by a mobile device or client device. In that instance, consumers can have the ability to select from a list of merchants that communicate via the multi-merchant app. In certain other embodiments, a mobile commerce application program can provide services to any number of merchants who may have their own respective apps, and the mobile commerce application program can provide a variety of payment, communication, advertising, and loyalty/reward services through, for example, one or more application plug-ins that can interface between the merchant apps and the mobile commerce application program. In this manner, a merchant can customize consumers' payment and/or loyalty/rewards experiences through a wallet app or mobile commerce application program.
  • In the above implementations and other embodiments described herein, a mobile commerce application program, sometimes referred to as a wallet app, can be hosted or otherwise stored on a mobile device, client device, server device, or any other processor-based device. Multiple instances of mobile commerce application programs can operate within a network environment, such as described in FIG. 1, and each may have similar or different functionality, such as described in FIG. 2, according to various embodiments and implementations as described herein.

  • Approve/Postpone Bill Payments
  • In some instances, consumers may desire to make bill payments using a mobile device 120(1). Certain embodiments of the disclosure can provide systems and processes for facilitating bill payments, such as setting up bill payments for utilities, etc. where a consumer's mobile device 120(1) acts as a first decision point for each bill payment. For example, a notification can arrive on a consumer's mobile phone 120(1) with notification of a new bill and amount of the bill. If the consumer reviews the bill and the amount is correct, the consumer can input a command to “approve and pay” using the mobile device 120(1) without doing anything further, which can trigger the bill to be paid. However, if the amount is not correct, the consumer can “defer” or “postpone” paying the bill, and pay the bill later via a website, after the consumer has had a chance to review the bill. In this manner, the “approve”/“defer” decisioning by the consumer for bill payment can provide a relatively easy and quick methodology for consumer bill payments.
  • In one embodiment, by way of a mobile device 120(1) or other client device, such as a laptop computer or tablet, a consumer can initiate a bill payment feature in a payment application program or app accessible via the consumer's mobile device 120(1) or other client device. For example, in a payment application or app accessible via the consumer's mobile device or other client device, a set of computer-executable instructions can be configured to receive an indication from the consumer for bill payment decisions to be routed to the consumer via a user interface associated with the consumer's mobile device 120(1) or other client device. In certain embodiments, the set of computer-executable instructions can be configured to receive bills on behalf of the consumer, and to transmit a message or generate a user interface requesting consumer authorization for payment of the bill and bill amount. In certain embodiments, the set of computer-executable instructions can be configured to, after receiving consumer approval, to provide payment instructions to a billing entity associated with the bill. In any instance, the set of computer-executable instructions can be configured to provide the consumer with bill information including the bill amount, and the option to pay the bill or decline to pay the bill with single click or command.

The bill payment module 224 of the mobile device 120(1) may obtain a current balance of the account. The bill payment module 224 of the mobile device 120(1) may determine, based at least in part user-specified preferences and/or thresholds, whether there are sufficient funds to pay the bill. If the bill payment module 224 of the mobile device 120(1) determines that there is sufficient funds to pay the bill, then the bill payment module 224 of the mobile device 120(1) will facilitate the bill payment. If the bill payment module 224 of the mobile device 120(1) determines there are not sufficient funds, based at least in part on the user-specified preferences and/or thresholds, then the bill payment module 224 of the mobile device 120(1) may generate a notification to the user indicating that there are insufficient funds, based at least in part on the user-specified preferences and/or thresholds, to pay the bill. The bill payment module 224 of the mobile device 120(1) may receive an indication from the user to postpone the payment to a later date, to schedule a reminder to review the account on a certain date, or to proceed with the payment. In some embodiments, the user-specified preferences may specify multiple criteria for payment. For example, the user-specified preferences may indicate that the bill should be paid using a particular bank account prior to the due date and only facilitate payment when the bank account reaches a specified threshold. For example, the user may authorize payment of the bill, specifying that the bill should be paid prior to the due date whenever the bank account reaches a certain balance. If the bill payment module 224 of the mobile device 120(1) determines that the bill has not been paid a pre-determined number of days before the due date because the balance of the bank account did not reach the specified amount, the bill payment module 224 of the mobile device 120(1) may generate a notification to the user, alerting them of the situation.
  • For example, the user may receive a bill in the amount of $67.00. The user-specified preferences may indicate that the bill should not be paid unless there is over $100.00 in the user's bank account. The user may have $90.00 currently in the bank account. The bill payment module 224 of the mobile device 120(1) may determine that based on the user-specified preferences, the bill should not be automatically paid. The bill payment module 224 of the mobile device 120(1) may generate a notification to the user indicating the bill amount ($67.00), the current balance of the bank account ($90.00), and the threshold indicated by the user ($100.00). The message may comprise links that may be presented to the user in the form of buttons.
  • In some embodiments, the bill payment module 224 of the mobile device 120(1) may be for a specific merchant or vendor, in which case the application may only retrieve and facilitate bill management and payment for the merchant or vendor. For example, the bill payment module 224 of the mobile device 120(1) may be specific to a cellular service provider and only bills for the cellular service provider may be retrieved and paid using the application.
  • In some embodiments, the bill payment module 224 of the mobile device 120(1) may enable the user to aggregate bills from multiple vendors or merchants. For example, a user may add all their utility bills for management by the mobile bill management application. Notifications may be received from each of the multiple vendors or may be received from a third party financial institute that has facilitated mobile bill management for the vendors.
  • Now referring to FIG. 4, a series of user interfaces 400 for mobile bill management are depicted in accordance with an embodiment of the disclosure. For example, some or all of the user interfaces can be used to implement the system and system components shown and described with respect to FIGS. 1 and 2, and the methods shown and described with respect to FIG. 3. Turning to FIG. 4, a user interface 420 generated by the bill payment module 224 of the mobile device 120(1) can display a notification to a user.
