Agreement to offer LIME’s Caribbean mobile customers International Top Up service through Prepay Nation’s processing platform and retail distribution network
Philadelphia, January, 24th 2011 – Prepay Nation, one of the fastest growing providers of instant account refills for international prepaid mobile operators, has announced an agreement with the Caribbean’s leading full- service telecommunications company LIME ( formerly Cable & Wireless) to offer International Top Up Services for its customers. The services will be utilized by Caribbean Diaspora communities throughout the USA, Canada, and Europe whose friends and family are among LIME’s mobile customers in the Caribbean today. The partnership will enable those Caribbean expatriates to recharge the mobile phone airtime of relatives back home directly and securely through Prepay Nation’s established distribution network.
Under this agreement, Prepay Nation will sell airtime for LIME in various forms including Real Time Top Up, pre- activated e-pins, and scratch cards to suit different retail scenarios at over 150,000 plus unduplicated sales locations in North America and Europe. Prepay Nation will also assist its’ distribution channel in generating the sales revenues by marketing the services at Point of Presence and participating in events within Caribbean Diaspora communities. “This is a service that brings significant added value to our customers and we are fully committed to doing all it takes to making the service as accessible as possible across Prepay Nation’s retail network,” said Colin Benjamin, Head of Diaspora & Visitor Sales for LIME. The collaboration will allow customers to recharge phones in all 13 of the markets in which LIME operates its mobile services, including Anguilla, Antigua & Barbuda, Barbados, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Dominica, Grenada, Jamaica, Montserrat, St Kitts & Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines and Turks & Caicos.
“We are proud to partner with LIME,” said Jessica Bishop, Vice President of Business Development at Prepay Nation. “They are the largest provider of telecommunication services in the Caribbean, which means dramatically increased value for our distribution partners as they meet the needs of more and more customers within this community.”
LIME and Prepay Nation will kick off their new partnership by conducting joint promotions to market the services, anticipating significant demand for international mobile top-up from Caribbean expatriates and their loved ones alike, both of whom will benefit from the newly widespread availability of this service via Prepay Nation.
