Prepay Nation launches Vodacom Mozambique top-ups on its global network

Mozambique emigrants can recharge the airtime on any Vodacom Mozambique phone instantly

Berwyn, PA, January 22, 2016 — Prepay Nation, a leading provider of cross-border prepaid mobile airtime transfers, has partnered with Vodacom Mozambique to make its mobile airtime top-ups available for purchase anywhere a retail outlet is integrated with Prepay Nation, comprising nearly 200,000 store fronts across North America, Europe and the Middle East.

According to 2010 World Bank estimates, Mozambicans emigrants number approximately 1.2 million, with some of their largest diaspora populations living and working in Portugal, the United Kingdom, Germany, the United States and Spain. These expatriates remit millions of dollars’ worth of financial support to their friends and family back home every year, and one of the most popular and affordable methods of sending support is by refilling their loved ones’ mobile phones from abroad.

With conveniently placed retail outlets all over the top destination countries for Mozambican emigrants, Prepay Nation anticipates high demand for Vodacom Mozambique airtime top-ups from its partner stores. Vodacom Mozambique is the market leader, with more than 40% market share in the country’s booming mobile telecom sector, and promises to become the most reliable and innovative business partner of choice. The operator’s continuous investment in infrastructure, customer relationships, and innovative services such as this IMTU partnership proves their ambition and vision.

“The value presented by engaging the Mozambican diaspora in our product offering is outstanding,” commented Henry Njoroge at Vodacom Mozambique. “They have shown themselves to be eager in supporting their family and friends back home, and allowing them to top-up the phones on our network is just one more way we are bringing connectivity and meaningful services to our subscribers. We are delighted at our partnership with Prepay Nation, who has provided us with a broad global footprint and a flexible, seamless technology platform.”

“Vodacom Mozambique is a valuable addition to our network of global mobile network operators, and we look forward to many years of bringing their market-leading prepaid mobile products to storefronts around the world,” added VP of Business Development for Prepay Nation, Hervé Perrin.
