Retailers in North America can sell Airtime refill for Viva Dominican Republic.
Online PR News – 10-February-2010 – – Philadelphia, PA, February 09, 2010 -- Prepay Nation, a leading International Top Up (ITU) distributor in North America, is now connected to resell airtime for Viva, a wireless operator with a number of sophisticated product offerings in the Dominican Republic.
By collaborating with Viva, Prepay Nation has enabled its retail partners in the United States and Canada to instantly refill the airtime for Viva’s subscribers in DR. With the launch of this service, the ominican Diaspora will be able to buy the airtime for their loved ones back home at participating locations. Since the airtime is credited on a real time basis, the money to the Viva subscriber is available for immediate use.
"Prepay Nation is proud to be one of the first International Top Up providers to go live with Viva in North America" said Jessica Bishop, Vice President of Business Development at Prepay Nation. "This advantage allows our customers and partners who service the Dominican Diaspora communities to benefit from this opportunity."
In the past, ITU has conventionally been sold out of money transfer locations. The recent increase in awareness of ITU has generated interest in selling International Airtime Recharge from multiple locales: wireless master agents, wholesalers, ISOs, and retailers selling domestic wireless refill and prepaid long distance cards. Not only has this diversification increased accessibility for the customer but international wireless operators also realize the fact that they can increase sales, and generate higher frequency of ITU by selling airtime at domestic refill locations.
Pierre Liautaud, Director, US Sales & Marketing of Trilogy International Partners, Viva’s American parent company, expects this relationship to highly encourage impact on Viva’s sales and distribution in North America. "Being connected with Prepay Nation allows us to penetrate the prepaid wireless market for Viva refills in the United States. The wireless dealers are already frequented by our target customers for refill of their US-domestic prepaid wireless phones," he said. "Moreover, a prepaid wireless retailer is the most effective sales person you can find to resell International Top Up because of their existing knowledge of cell phones and airtime sales. They are ready to produce on day one."
