G&D teams with PayPal on pre-paid mobile top-ups in Brazil

Facilitating the solution

Giesecke & Devrient and PayPal will partner to provide Brazilian network Vivo with a mobile solution allowing customers with prepaid accounts to top up their credit on their phones via PayPal.

The solution gives customers direct access to phone credit whilst eradicating the need to buy a top-up card via point of sale. The service is based on USSD technology which does not require users to download additional applications and is compatible with all types of mobile phone. This represents an opportunity for PayPal to leverage its position on the mobile channel.

Security will be handled by G&D through its SmartTrust Mobile Transaction Gateway.
