Description

ACCOUNTING METHOD BY AUTHENTICATION OF MOBILE

TELECOMMUNICATION COMPANY

Technical Field

This invention relates to an accounting method by

authentication of mobile telecommunication, and specifically, a

method of making payment in which payment of purchasers who

possess their mobile phones is made by using a mobile

communication company as authentication agencies of the

purchasers.

Background Art

Nowadays, along with rapid progress of computer and

communication technology, the Internet, which is the limitless and

open sea of information, has been propagated to all workplaces and

even homes. And with Internet bookseller companies like

Amazon. com heading the way, the Internet is used for business

transactions and bill payment. Also, devices like mobile phones

and PDA's become more and more commonplace and are used in many

areas.

Meanwhile, though vending machines for cigarettes, soft drinks, etc. , have become commonplace because they do not require

a person to be present at a place of sale, it is inconvenient that

the machines take cash only but do not allow credit transactions.

Besides, some machines only take coins, but do not take bills, and

this is even more inconvenient, requiring customers to carry coins

with themselves. If one takes this into account and purchases a

machine that takes both coins and bills, the price of it increases

significantly. Further, visiting the machines and collecting coins

that are sitting in the machines is another inconvenience, and

finally, there is still another problem in that it is very

difficult to know the total stock of goods in the machine in the

remote place on the spot.

One method of making payment by credit cards in a vending

machine is disclosed in Korean Patent Laid-open Publication No.

2001-7851, which comprises a card reader and a wired/wireless

communication device for using credit cards for transaction in the

vending machine, and wired/wireless communication networks to

enable sending/receiving of data.

However, the above method of making payment using credit

cards has been little commercialized because the commission on each transaction is too high for products of very low value as

goods to be dealt in by the vending machines.

Disclosure of Invention

Accordingly, the present invention is made in order to

solve the above problems, and one object of the present invention

is to provide a method of making payment using a mobile

communication company as an authentication agency, in which

payment between purchasers who possess their mobile phones and

vending machines is automatically made by using a mobile

communication company, which the purchasers is affiliated with, as

authentication agency.

To accomplish the object of this invention, a method of

making payment using a mobile communication company as an

authentication agency is provided in accordance with one

embodiment of the invention, which is executed in a system wherein

a goods/service provider having a mobile communication means, a

mobile communication device of a purchaser and a mobile

communication company are connected to each other via a wireless

communication network, and a transactions server for settlement,

which accounts for the goods/service provider and the purchaser are established in, and the mobile communication company are

connected to each other via a wired communication network, said

method being characterized by comprising the steps of: (a)

transmitting a mobile telephone number of the purchaser and

information on a goods/service price which the purchaser selects

to the mobile communication company and requesting a purchaser

authentication; (b) calling the mobile telephone number in the

mobile communication company and having the purchaser input his

own password; (c) transmitting information on approval of the

purchaser authentication and the information on a goods/service

price to the transaction server from the mobile communication

company when the password inputted in the step (b) and a

pre-registered password are coincided; and (d) transferring the

goods/service price from the purchaser's account to the account of

the goods/service provider by the transaction server.

In the above-mentioned construction, said goods/service

provider is preferably a vending machine.

Best Mode for Carrying out the Invention

Now, a method of making payment using a mobile

communication company as an authentication agency according to a

preferred embodiment of the present invention will be described in

detail with reference to the accompanying drawings.

Fig. 1 is a block diagram for a network configuration of a

system of making payment using a mobile communication company as

an authentication agency according to one embodiment of the

present invention. In accordance with the network configuration of

a system of making payment using a mobile communication company as

an authentication agency as illustrated in Fig. 1, a transaction

server (400) for settlement of a goods/service price and an

exchange server (220) of the mobile communication company (200)

are connected to each other via the Internet or an exclusive line,

and said transaction server (400) may also be connected to a bank server (500) via the Internet or the exclusive line. Furthermore,

an exchange department (210) of the mobile communication company

(200), a vending machine (100) and a mobile communication device

(300) are connected to each other via a wireless communication

network.

To explain such a construction more specifically, the

mobile communication company (200) comprises the exchange

department (210) for executing a wireless communication between

the vending machine (100) and the mobile communication device

(300), an exchange server (220) for executing a data communication

with the transaction server (400) via the Internet, and databases

(230, 232) for storing telephone numbers and passwords of

subscribers.

The vending machine (100) may have a mobile communication

means (130) for a wireless communication in addition to the

current configuration. That is, the vending machine (100)

comprises as elements of the conventional vending machine, a

function selector means (110) for selecting one of several

functions of the vending machine (100) such as a selection of

goods for purchase, a product output means (120) for outputting the selected goods and a central control means (140) for

controlling the above means. And, the vending machine (100)

further comprises the mobile communication means (130), which

under collaboration with the central control means (140), performs

a wireless communication with the exchange department (210) of the

mobile communication company (200).

The mobile communication means (130) comprises a telephone

controller (131) for controlling overall operations of the mobile

communication means (130), a wireless transmitter (133) for

executing the wireless communication with the exchange department

(210), a key input means (132) for inputting several functions

included in the mobile communication means (130) such as an input

of the telephone number, etc., an LCD means (134) for indicating

an acting state of the mobile communication means (130) and a

transmission controller (135) for communicating internally with

the central control means (140).

The transaction server (400) is linked to a member DB (410)

for storing information about mobile telephone numbers, etc. , of

the purchasers and the mobile communication means of the vending

machines who are members, and an account DB (412) for storing information relating to accounts of the members.

A method of making payment using a mobile communication company as

an authentication agency in accordance with the present invention is

described hereinafter.

Fig. 2 is a flowchart for explaining a method of making payment

using a mobile communication company as an authentication agency

according to one embodiment of the present invention, in which a solid

lines represent a wired communication, dotted lines represent a wireless

communication, and the steps in the upper part in the flowchart precede

the steps in the relatively lower part. In the method of making payment

using a mobile communication company as an authentication agency

according to one embodiment of the present invention as shown in Fig. 2,

the purchaser and the vending machine (100) have to subscribe for, and

have been assigned their own individual telephone numbers through, the

mobile communication company (200) in advance, and also, have to register

a password or an authorization code for execution of functions in the

mobile communication company (200). Further, the purchaser and the

vending machine (100) have to affiliate with, and establish their own

accounts in, the transaction server (400) in advance.

At this state, the vending machine (100) executes step S10, in which, when the purchaser selects a credit transaction function

using the mobile communication device (300) and desired goods, the

vending machine (100) calculates a price of the goods, and stores

a mobile telephone number of the purchaser inputted via a key

input means (132) of the mobile communication means (130). Then,

the vending machine (100) executes step S20 of transmitting the

mobile telephone number of the purchaser and his own, and

information on the goods price to the exchange department (210) of

the mobile communication company (200), for example by means of a

short message service (SMS), etc., via a wireless communication,

and then requesting a purchaser authentication.

Subsequently, the exchange department (210) executes step

S30 of calling the mobile telephone number transmitted from the

vending machine (100) and instructing the purchaser to input his

own password by means of ARS, SMS, etc. And, in response to such

instructions, the purchaser inputs a password using his own mobile

communication device (300), which is then transmitted to the

exchange department (210) via the wireless communication(step

S40).

Next, the mobile communication company (200) refers to the phone number DB (230) and the password DB (232), and determines

whether the password inputted by the purchaser in step S30 and a

pre-registered password of the subscriber having the mobile

telephone number are coincided. If they are coincided, the mobile

communication company (200) executes step S50 of transmitting

information on result of the purchaser authentication and the

information on the goods price to the transaction server together

with the telephone numbers of the purchaser and the vending

machine (100).

In step S60, the transaction server (400) confirms whether

both parties are members using the transmitted mobile telephone

numbers of the purchaser and the vending machine (100) from the

mobile communication company (200) and whether reserved money in

the account of the purchaser who is a member remains sufficiently

to pay for the goods, that is, the balance is sufficient. At this

time, where the balance is sufficient, the transaction server

(400) transfers the goods price from the purchaser's account to

the account of the owner of the vending machine (100)

automatically, and then executes step S70 of transmitting the

processing details to the exchange server (220) of the mobile communication company (200).

In step S80, the mobile communication company (200)

transmits instructions of outputting the goods to the vending

machine (100) by means of the exchange department (210), and the

mobile communication means (130) of the vending machine (100) to

have received such instructions transfers the instructions to the

central control means (140) via the transmission controller (135),

and thus the central control means (140) controls the product

output means (120), so as to output the goods(step S90).

In the above-described construction, the mobile

communication company (200) refuses the audentication when the

password inputted by the purchaser and the pre-registered password

of the subscriber are not coincided in step S30, and the refused

fact is reported to the mobile communication device (300) of the

purchaser by means of ARS, SMS, etc. In the vending machine (100),

the program ends after instructing a refusal against an output of

the goods. And, in result of an inquiry of the transmitted

information at step S50, in case that the owner of the vending

machine (100) or the purchaser is not a member of the transaction

server (400), or the balance is not sufficient to pay for the goods although they are members, the transaction server (400)

transmits such a fact to the mobile communication company (200),

the mobile communication company (200) reporting the fact to the

mobile communication device (300) of the purchaser using ARS, SMS,

etc. In the vending machine (100), the program ends after

instructing a refusal against an output of the goods.

Meanwhile, differently from the embodiment shown in Fig. 2,

an authentication can also be executed by the vending machine

(100) and the mobile communication company (200) only without

intervening the mobile communication device (300) of the

purchaser. In this case, the vending machine (100) receives

information on selection of goods, the mobile telephone number and

the password to be inputted by the purchaser instead of step S10,

and then the vending machine (100) transmits mobile telephone

numbers of his own and the purchaser and the inputted password of

the purchaser, and information on the goods price to the mobile

communication company (200), and requests a purchaser

authentication, instead of the above-mentioned step S20. Next, the

mobile communication company (200) refers to the phone number DB

(230) and the password DB (232), and determines whether the inputted password and a pre-registered password of the subscriber

having the mobile telephone number are coincided. According to the

determination, other steps below step S50 are executed. Therefore,

step S30 and step S40 are omitted in this embodiment.

Furthermore, it is also possible to allow the vending

machine (100) to carry out the function of the mobile

communication device (300) as a modified embodiment of Fig. 2.

That is, instead of step S30 in Fig. 2, the mobile communication

company (200) calls the vending machine (100) instead of the

mobile communication device (300) of the purchaser and instructs

the purchaser to input his password in the vending machine (100).

If the purchaser inputs his password via the key input means (132)

of the vending machine (100) according to such instructions, the

inputted password can also be transmitted to the mobile

communication company (200) from the vending machine (100).

The invention is not limited to the above-mentioned

embodiments, but rather various changes or modifications thereof

are possible without departing from the spirit of the invention.

For example, the description is explained for, but not limited to,

the vending machine as the goods/service provider, which can also be applied to a cash drawer, etc. That is, the conventional cash

drawer, etc. , may comprise a mobile communication means and

determine whether to output cashes according to a result of

executing an authentication of a demander himself of a service by

the above-mentioned method. Besides, the present invention can

also be applied to a cash register operated by a person in a goods

store, a ticket sale store, etc. Also, the mobile telephone number

of the purchaser can be inputted and stored to the vending machine

(100) by means of a bar code scan means, an IR communication

means, an RF communication means, etc. , instead of the key input

means (132).

According to the configuration and acting of the method of

making payment using a mobile communication company as an

authentication agency in accordance with the embodiments of the

present invention described above, a payment method will be

diversifed by executing an authentication using mobile

communication devices carried with most modern people, thereby

having an effect of increasing security and promotion of

transactions.
