Our technology enables operators of Prepaid Services to offer voucher-less recharge, with no PINs & no restrictions on denominations.

The service can be operated either by:

  • The Prepaid Operator themselves for recharge of their service, or,
  • A 3rd party Service Provider who distributes recharge of either a single or multiple operators
  • The platform supports recharge for multiple services (mobile, internet, TV…)
  • Platform supports B2B (distribution via a hierarchical network of agents), or self recharge (B2C).

Our B2C module enables subscribers to recharge their own or another account using a m-App, web portal or Kiosk, and making payment via any mode of e-payment (cards, direct bank debit, m-Wallet account).

Benefits of e-Top Up:

  • No PINs, thus no restrictions on recharge denomination; any value recharge!
  • Eliminates scratch cards, its risks & costs
  • Merchants purchase airtime value (not PINs), reducing stock out risk for fast moving items
  • No risk of theft or damage to stock, as merchant inventory sits in a m-wallet on server
  • Retailers use their mobile phones to buy & sell airtime top up anytime, anywhere

In many countries, Voucher based recharge is a preferred way to recharge prepaid services including mobile recharge.

Our e-Voucher technology enables service providers to distribute e-PINs via their merchants, using multiple devices to either print the e-PIN at the point of sale, or, send the e-PIN by SMS to customer. This potential outsourcing of e-voucher distribution opens up new & exciting opportunities for service providers, who can distribute e-Vouchers of multiple services & operators on the same infrastructure, to earn additional revenues.

Our e-Voucher system easily upgrades to full e-Top Up enabling operators of Prepaid Services to offer voucher less recharge, with no PINs & no restrictions on denominations.

Benefits of e-Voucher

  • Operators need not print scratch cards & incur logistics for distribution, saving significant cost
  • Operators can track all e-PIN recharge sales to the last distribution point
  • Reduces fraud, fake vouchers, lost / damaged / stolen vouchers

The technology also offers benefits for retailers:

  • Retailers can purchase either value based stock, or individual PINs, thus managing their working capital as they deem fit
  • They can operate either on line or off line, thus managing working capital efficiently
  • No risk of theft or damage to stock, as the inventory sits electronically in a wallet / device

Service providers can offer a comprehensive bill presentment & payment service for:

  • Multiple billers
  • In either or both, B2C (self payment), or B2B (distribution via a hierarchical network of agents) mode
  • In B2B mode, agents can utilize their ‘common’ working capital (wallet balance) to sell both prepaid recharge & bill payment services

Multiple billers can easily be on-boarded, and their Bills can be uploaded into the system at varying frequencies and formats, with notifications to subscribers, who can then pay either themselves using any mode of e-Payment (cards, direct bank debit, m-Wallet account), or in cash at authorized agents. A reconciliation module is available, with drill down capability to transaction level for dispute management.
