Telcel Mexico selects Vesta Corporation for new recharge functionality

Tuesday 12 April 2011 11:31 CET | News

US-based electronic payment services provider Vesta Corporation has launched the first of a range of payment services in support of Telcel’s prepaid mobile products.

In response to subscriber demand for “anytime, anywhere” purchase functionality, Vesta’s technology allows Telcel consumers to pay for airtime, data plans and other services without having to visit a retail point of sale. The first offering is set to allow customers to fund their prepaid broadband accounts on the Web with a credit card. Vesta will manage all requests through a Telcel-branded website, validate cardholder data, and deliver real-time account credits for successful transactions.

Over the next few months, Telcel is planning to extend Vesta-powered reloads to include prepaid wireless plus IVR, WAP, live agent and text-to-refill recharges. Additional products under discussion include Auto-Pay, which allows customers to regularly add value to their accounts based upon a specific calendar date or a user’s available balance.

Telcel (Radiomóvil Dipsa) operates in Mexico since 1989 and serves over 59.2 million customers. Telcel is a subsidiary of America Movil, a provider of wireless services in Latin America with operations in 18 countries in the Americas and Caribbean.
