IN Switch’s eTopUp Suite, ePIN, is a complete electronic TopUP solution that enables the TopUP of air time credit via USSD and standard GSM handsets.
ePIN allows mobile subscribers to TopUP their accounts through authorized agents (stores, street sellers, etc.). In this way the operator can easily expand the sales network by incorporating non-traditional retail outlets that just consist on a GSM handset.
ePIN replaces the physically currently used scratchCard for an electronic transaction. IN Switch’s Voucherless TopUP Solution, ePIN, allows subscribers to TopUP their mobile prepaid accounts with a simple electronic transaction:
- The subscriber approaches a local mobile agent in order to buy airtime credit.
- The mobile agent using his mobile phone enters his PIN, the subscriber’s MSISDN, and the amount.
- ePIN authorizes the payment, and debits and credits the corresponding prepaid accounts through a direct link with the mobile operator’s prepaid system.
- The subscriber and the agent receive a confirmation SMS.
