This gives Vodafone UK’s Mobile Network Virtual Operators (MVNO) customers the ability to transfer credit from a pre-pay or post-pay account in the UK to other Vodafone pre-pay customers outside the UK.
TransferTo works with over 165 operators in 60 countries to apply the top up credit to the recipient’s account.
A statement from Vodafone UK says “this service lets Vodafone MVNO customers in the UK send small value sums of prepay credit to their relatives and friends in other countries in the form of prepaid top ups.
This is good news for Vodafone customers in Ghana who have family members and friends in the UK who are also Vodafone Customers.
The statement says these are generally low in cost for the sender but high in value for the recipient. The transfer is easy and convenient and takes place instantly.
Tim Stone, Director of New Business Development and Wholesale at Vodafone UK was quoted as saying Vodafone is always looking for new wholesale products and services that will enable its MVNO partners to continue to develop and succeed in the market.
He says TransferTo is the leading provider with a proven solution and has strong relationships already in place with partner operators in key countries such as India and Pakistan.
Mr. Stone says this partnership further enhances Vodafone’s wholesale portfolio and their position as the wholesale partner of choice.
