Total Solution to Prepaid Airtime

date: 2014-09-02

Guanri, who is a leading telecom solution provider, provides a total solution that facilitates electronic topup of prepaid airtime. Our solution enables mobile operators and vendors to distribute their products electronically.

Electronic Delivery of Prepaid Airtime

Most mobile phone users make prepayment for the airtime in two modes. One is the traditional mode, which allows users to top up their phones by buying a scratch card with a PIN code. The other mode is the electronic delivery, which allows users to top up their phones electronically.

The electronic mode can eliminate the disadvantages of the traditional mode by introducing electronic delivery of the topup service to telecom operators and vendors. See details in the table below:

Guanri Solutions for Electronic Delivery: e-Voucher and e-Topup

Guanri offers two ways to top up the prepaid airtime electronically: e-Voucher and e-Topup. Operators can choose either of them according to their local conditions.

e-Voucher Solution
The vendor uses the terminal for industrial applications to print out a paper voucher which contains a PIN code and other information required. The user then uses the PIN code to top up a mobile airtime account with any mobile phone.

e-Topup Solution
The user tells the vendor the mobile phone number to be topped up and pays cash to the vendor. The vendor helps the user to top up the mobile phone via Guanri terminal for industrial applications. After successful topup, the terminal for industrial applications prints out a receipt, and the user receives an SMS.
