TransferTo extends International Prepaid Top-Up


TransferTo, an Ingenico company and leading provider of international airtime transfer services, on Tuesday announced that the International Prepaid Top-Up Transfer service offered by SFR, a major French mobile network operator, would be extended to 27 additional airtime receiving countries, including a number in Africa.

The extension to new receiving countries such as Egypt, Haiti, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ivory Coast, Benin, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Russia, Senegal, Turkey, Viet Nam, India, Pakistan and many others follows the successful launch of the pilot last summer enabling SFR customers to recharge the prepaid accounts of Tunisie Telecom customers.

“Simple, reliable and convenient, all international airtime transfers are performed in real time via SMS making the service available for SFR customers at any time, anywhere,” the company said in a press release.

“The international top-up transfer service offered by SFR enables migrant customers residing in France to send small amounts of value in the form of prepaid top-ups, a great low cost, high value gift making it the ideal complement to regular money remittances. First time users of the service enjoy a free of charge airtime transfer, offered by SFR as part of the marketing measures taken to promote the service.”

The extension to 27 new countries, and more should follow soon, would not have been possible without TransferTo’s continuously growing network, which enables instant access to over 165 partner operators in 65+ countries.
