Expresso Senegal mobile customers enabled to receive top-ups from loved ones worldwide via Prepay Nation

Senegalese emigrants can share their income with their loved ones avoiding fees by sending instant international mobile recharges

Berwyn, PA, June 7, 2016 — Prepay Nation, a leading provider of cross-border prepaid mobile airtime transfers, has announced the availability of Expresso Senegal airtime on its platform which is integrated with over 200,000 retail networks across North America, Europe and the Middle East.

Over 250 thousand Senegal emigrants support their families back home, sending over $1.5 billion every year. Since traditional money transfer methods have cumbersome transaction fees that reduce how much actually arrives to the recipient, alternative means of helping out back home have been growing in popularity for years. Alongside remote bill-pay services and mobile wallets, international mobile top-up services like that built by Prepay Nation are taking off, allowing expats to cheaply, easily and conveniently power one of the most essential tools in present life: the connectivity of the mobile phone.

“We have large Senegalese immigrant populations living in France, Italy, Spain and the United States, regions well-covered by the Prepay Nation distribution network,” commented Hervé Perrin, VP of Business Development for Prepay Nation. “We are excited to help bring fee-free international airtime transfers to Senegalese diaspora communities worldwide, and look forward to the greater levels of connection and support this will facilitate for Expresso Senegal subscribers as well.”

“Expresso Senegal is relentlessly creating new, innovative services that contribute to reducing the digital divide in Senegal, and that bring value to our customers’ daily lives. Our target is to become soon a key service provider in this country,” added Sajid Ahmed Khan, Chief Commercial Officer at Expresso Senegal. “We strongly value innovation, simplicity, transparency, and proximity—all of which are greatly enhanced by our integration with Prepay Nation. Not only is it an innovative service that is simple to use and totally transparent to the sender and recipient, but it is also one of the most powerful ways we can help our subscribers stay close to their loved ones abroad.”

“We value our new partnership with Prepay Nation’s team; with such a seamless integration, they made the process of launching another world-class telecommunications service for our subscribers so easy and the value immediately available,” Khan added.
