Thuraya teams up with Western Union

Thursday 24 April 2014 00:45 CET | News

Thuraya Telecommunications Company, a Mobile Satellite Services (MSS) operator, and Western Union have entered an agreement to provide top-up services for Thuraya prepaid SIMs for voice and data services using the Western Union Quick Pay service.

The service is available at participating Western Union agent locations in the majority of the 200+ countries and territories in which the company provides services. This method of payment enables Thuraya customers to recharge their pre-paid SIMs with no fee.

The Western Union Quick Pay service enhances and complements Thuraya’s existing distribution channel by enabling Thuraya customers to recharge their pre-paid SIMs. To top-up a Thuraya prepaid SIM card, a customer can visit a participating Western Union agent location, provide identification and their Thuraya phone number and re-load their prepaid SIM card with a cash payment. In addition, family, friends and colleagues can add pre-paid credit on behalf of a Thuraya user traveling abroad.

In recent news, US-based prepaid cards and financial services provider NetSpend has teamed up with Western Union in order to develop a co-branded prepaid card.
