Ingenico (Euronext : FR0000125346 - ING), leading worldwide provider of payment solutions, today announces that TransferTo, an Ingenico company, in partnership with PaymentLink, launched Mobile AirTime Transfer (MATT™), a service that allows customers to send mobile credits to their loved ones in Indonesia, Philippines, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Nepal from the convenience of any of 7-Eleven's 500+ locations in Singapore.
MATT was designed for the large foreign worker population in Singapore who wish to send meaningful gifts to their family and friends back home on special occasions such as birthdays or religious holidays. For $5, MATT users can recharge popular mobile operators such as Globe in the Philippines, Excelcom in Indonesia, and Idea in India easily and from any 7-Eleven stores.
To use the service, 7-Eleven customers simply have to provide the staff with the number they wish to recharge and their own mobile phone number in Singapore. The recharge gift is then automatically credited to the recipient's mobile phone, typically in less than 30 seconds.
Commenting on the launch, TransferTo CEO Eric Barbier said: We're proud to team up with PaymentLink and 7-Eleven to launch this unique service which addresses the needs of the largely underserved foreign worker population in Singapore. This new win further demonstrates the relevance of our offer of Mobile Airtime Transfer. "
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."
Formerly known as QB Pte Ltd, PaymentLink Pte Ltd is the partner of the Land Transport Authority of Singapore ("LTA") and the exclusive partner of EZ-Link Pte Ltd for payment and loyalty services on the concession and ez-link cards respectively.
