International Top Up Reaches New Heights at Emida

FOOTHILL RANCH, California, August 15, 2012 (Business Wire) – Emida, a leader in the global prepayment and value transfer market, shows month over month growth in International top up.

Since releasing International top up in early 2010, Emida has seen tremendous growth. An extensive offering of geographies coupled with an effortless transaction process at the merchant level, has resulted in both high customer demand and a smooth selling experience for the distribution channel.

“It was important to us that we develop the International top up product to be as intuitive as possible,” says Ron Kraft, VP/GM North America. “So in order to apply airtime funds to an overseas phone, a U.S. retail clerk needs only to gather the number and the amount from the consumer. The Emida system will find the appropriate International carrier and complete the transaction. This design alleviates any confusion over which carrier the phone is utilizing.”

With the addition of more than 20 new operators already in 2012 and the ease of use pertaining to the processing of transactions, International top up will undoubtably continue as one of the fastest growing products within the Emida suite of global prepaid solutions.
