TransferTo, the global mobile airtime transfer company, today announced that it is joining forces with CSL Limited, the leading mobile operator in Hong Kong, to offer cross border airtime remittances.
International workers, travelers and visitors who are using CSL prepaid card may now recharge the prepaid mobile phone of their relatives back home using the “Share-a-load” service. To share a load, the sender needs to SMS the amount and destination number. Transaction is processed in real-time through TransferTo secure platform.
The solution is mainly offered to foreign communities, international workers and visitors who maintain strong ties with their families and relatives abroad. Although they send part of their earnings every month directly to the household head, they lack an appropriate service for sending smaller amounts to the rest of their family. TransferTo comes as the perfect solution for giving out airtime recharge as a gift on special occasions such as birthdays, festivals or celebrations.
“Hong Kong is one of the most sophisticated and competitive telecommunications markets in the world. We are pleased to offer a new and innovative service to the ethnic segments of our client base” says Wesley Cheng, Executive Vice President, Prepaid, Wholesale & Carrier Business of CSL Limited said.
“We are enthusiastic about this partnership as the service has a great untapped potential in Hong Kong. It will enable the strong expatriates’ communities in Hong Kong to send airtime to top up the prepaid phones of their relatives in countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, which is two of the extensive list of countries available to this service” said Eric Barbier, CEO of TransferTo.
With more than 100 migration corridors fully covered over 5 continents, TransferTo is a leading global player in the international airtime remittance space.
