With this new development, Pakistanis living abroad can easily top-up Zong prepaid subscribers back home via TransferTo’s international airtime transfer network, which is comprised of mobile operators, point of sale retailers, and its online top-up service, www.transferto.com.
Customers can also top-up any Zong number from the web: http://www.transferto.com/
“We’re thrilled to welcome Zong on our network, which now enables top-ups to all prepaid mobile subscribers in Pakistan,” said Eric Barbier, TransferTo Founder and CEO. He added: “Pakistanis living abroad now have many ways to send low cost, high value gifts to their loved ones back home as a complement to their cash remittances.”
Expressing his views Salman Wassay, Head of Marketing at Zong said: “Our vision is to offer innovative products. With such value propositions we will be able to establish a strong connection with the Pakistani consumers and their families worldwide besides boosting our presence throughout Pakistani communities.”
According to the World Bank, approximately 200 million migrants send more than $400 billion back home each year. For many of those migrants, making the gift of airtime is an inexpensive way to complement their regular cash remittances. International top-ups are also a great way to reach out to loved ones on special occasions such as birthdays or religious holidays. International Top-ups are a growing trend: today, millions of migrants worldwide send International Top-Ups back home several times a month.
