Philadelphia, PA (PressExposure) December 19, 2009 -- Prepay Nation, a leading prepaid wireless distributor in North America, has announced a special partnership with Digicel, the largest mobile operator in Caribbean to bring the International Top Up (ITU) program to Prepay Nation partners nationwide. Selected to integrate with Digicel to offer the program, Prepay Nation will make service immediately available to its retailers and partner distributors. The ITU program enables the Diaspora Caribbean and Central American countries like Jamaica, Honduras, El Salvador, Trinidad & Tobago and Guyana, to recharge their family & friendsâ prepaid Digicel wireless accounts instantly, without the intermediate step of acquiring and entering a refill PIN.
âPrepay Nation is proud to add Digicel to our ITU program,â said Steven Ascher, Chief Executive of Prepay Nation. âWe are always actively seeking ways to bring new products, improved profitability, ease of use and operational speed to our retailers and partners. This program is a natural choice for us.â
With ITU, the retailer simply enters the paid amount and the Digicel mobile number into the ITU module of the Prepay Nation portal, and the amount is instantly credited to the customerâs prepaid wireless account with no further action necessary.
âInternational Top Up is one of the most important evolutions the prepaid wireless industry has ever seen,â said Valerie Estime, Digicelâs Diaspora General Manager. âWith this latest technology, we are introducing another simple way for our customers to purchase top up.â
The ITU program, while a forward-thinking concept, requires adept distributorship to help operators to reach target Diaspora and promote cross border recharge. âDigicel is keen to make our products available to as many retailers as possible - but not every retailer in North America has access to the opportunity,â said Estime. âThatâs where distributors like Prepay Nation become so important, as the distribution points it has in place are essential in terms of broadening our reach.â
Prepay Nation is providing the ITU program to its retail and distributor partners, including existing point-of-sale activation (POSA) companies with a focus on Wireless distribution points. âWeâre confident that enabling our partners to offer instant, one-step refills for Digicel prepaid phones will help it attract new customers and increase volumes from its existing customers.â said Ascher. âPrepay Nation is excited to roll ITU out to our partners nationwide.â For more information about ITU and partnership opportunities, contact the company at http://www.prepaynation.com
