Prepay Nation began its journey in 2009 to simplify recharging cross-border, pay-as-you-go wireless accounts and level the digital accessibility playing field for subscribers, irrespective of where they are situated in the world. Today, the company has broadened its business scope and become a worldwide leader in helping brands—including mobile network operators (MNOs), telcos, utilities, gaming-streaming-gifting platforms and NGOs—enable fast and reliable cross-border prepaid micro-transactions.

Prepay Nation boasts an operational presence in more than 150 countries, with hundreds of partners, over 600 mobile operators, and more than 300,000 channel outlets— backed by a globally-distributed team. This vast coverage helps Prepay Nation foster large-scale user and brand inclusivity for its clients. Any brand that offers prepaid products and services can partner with Prepay Nation to effortlessly gain international presence and growth.

How Does Prepay Nation Achieve This?

Prepay Nation has built a technology platform that gives brands unprecedented access to the company’s valueadded services (VAS) marketplace and connects them to vast distribution networks of resellers, independent sales organizations (ISOs) worldwide, and imbedded solutions providers, including self-service kiosks, point of sale devices, e-commerce websites, and retail locations, through which brands can create and sell their prepaid cross-border offers. Because of the highly attractive commission rates and competitive revenue-sharing models that Prepay Nation has in its distribution network, brands can gain broad exposure among the international diasporas. Be it through vouchers, gift cards, loyalty programs, or top-up bundles, Prepay Nation brings plenty of options for brands to win new customers and generate incremental revenues.

Describing how it succeeds in unlocking the diasporadriven revenue for clients, AJ Hanna, CEO of Prepay Nation, says, “There are nearly 300 million immigrants who live and work around the world, away from their homecountries. They wish to support friends, family and loved ones back home by directly topping up their mobile devices, prepaying utility bills, or sending gift cards. We enable our partners to fulfill this largely unmet diasporic need by being at their customers’ disposal through the multitudes of touchpoints that we offer.” This allows brands to scale globally faster and with minimal cost and resource overheads.
Conversely, with Prepay Nation, global brands can establish a diaspora-sponsored presence in remote markets. For instance, a Filipino expat working in the UAE can seamlessly pay for a globally popular streaming service—via touchpoints powered by Prepay Nation’s technology hub and value-added services (VAS) marketplace—for their family in a different country.
