Telenor Pakistan and TransferTo, the international mobile airtime top-up network, have joined hands to enable International Top-Ups to Telenor subscribers from overseas, both companies announced today.
Pakistanis living abroad can now conveniently top-up their loved ones’ phones with Telenor Pakistan airtime through any of TransferTo’s authorized partners, as well as the consumer-facing website, http://www.transferto.com.
Pakistani subscribers in Saudi Arabia, for example, can send Telenor Pakistan top-ups simply by SMS if they are STC subscribers, a TransferTo partner operator.
The transaction is processed in real-time through TransferTo’s secure platform. Top-ups towards Telenor Pakistan on TransferTo can be as low as 100 rupees and as high as 5,000 rupees for any given transaction.
There are approximately 7 million Pakistanis living abroad. For many, topping up a phone in their home country is a great way to make a low cost, high value gift to friends and family on special occasions such as birthdays or religious holidays.
“We are excited to add Telenor Pakistan to our list of receiving operators and increase coverage of Pakistan in the process,” said Eric Barbier, TransferTo Founder and CEO. “Now, Pakistanis living abroad can easily send airtime to their loved ones back home.”
Chief Marketing Officer Telenor Pakistan, Lars Christian Iuel said,
“Telenor Pakistan is always looking at possibilities to expand its outreach to its customers and provide them with unique services, no matter where they are. This is an exciting time for us. We are pleased to introduce a service that will help our international customers send airtime back home and stay connected across borders.”
