TransferTo launches prepaid mobile in Singapore with 7-Eleven

Launching Mobile AirTime Transfer

Payment solutions provider TransferTo is launching a Mobile AirTime Transfer (MATT) service in partnership with PaymentLink, which allows customers to send mobile credits to Indonesia, Philippines, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Nepal from any of 7-Eleven’s 500+ locations in Singapore (view press release).

To use MATT, which was developed for the large foreign worker population in Singapore wishing to send gifts to family or friends back home, 7-Eleven customers provide staff with the number they wish to recharge and their own mobile phone number in Singapore resulting in the gift being automatically credited to the recipients phone. Mobile operators such as Globe in the Philippines, Idea in India and Excelcom in Indonesia can be recharged for a fee of $5.

Eric Barbier, CEO of TransferTo – an Ingenico company – believes MATT addresses the needs of the large foreign worker population in Singapore while PaymentLink’s CEO, Jeremy Tan, added: “With this collaboration, we are now able to provide a value-added service to these foreign workers to send mobile credits back home which is simple to understand and instantaneous.”
