Mumbai: In what it claims to be a first in the country leading private sector lender ICICI Bank on Tuesday launched ‘Eazypay’, an app for merchants, retailers and professionals to accept payments on mobiles from multiple digital modes.

Any current account holder of ICICI Bank can instantly download the Eazypay app and start using it, it said, adding the facility can also be used by non- ICICI Bank customers.

The app is available on smartphones with Android operating systems now and will shortly be available on the iOS operating system as well.
