VAS Components: PINless Recharge

Real time airtime distribution without stock

Pinless Recharge

TradeSwitch® offers direct or PINless recharge when integrated directly into the Mobile Network Operator’s IN and prepaid platforms. This solution completely eliminates the need for PINs and thus removing all issues and hidden costs related to stock management.

It also has the following additional advantages:

  • Any value of airtime may be sold as this is no longer linked to specific, voucher-based denominations
  • Fraud is limited as recharges happen almost instantly and the SMS confirmation of successful transaction originates from the MNO itself
  • No slow-moving stock issues in the distribution value chain
  • Enables new distribution channels such as informal vending via participating individuals
  • Minimal subscriber training and education is required
  • Solves literacy-related subscriber problems
