The one essential reward item that virtually no reward providers offer. Walk down a busy street in a major city in almost country in the world. What’s the one thing you’ll always see? People on their mobile phones.

Mobile phones are one of the fastest-growing consumer trends. By 2017, it’s predicted there will be almost 5.3 billion mobile phone users worldwide*. One of the largest market segments in the mobile world is prepaid phone usage … users purchasing credit in advance for their phones and topping up their time as needed.

This may surprise many North Americans where 75% of connections are post-paid on phone contracts. Yet outside of North America, prepaid usage dominates. About 50% of phones are prepaid in Europe, 80% in Latin America and over 95% in Asia Pacific, Africa and emerging countries.**

Prepaid mobile top-up, or recharge as it’s also referred to, represents a multi-billion market worldwide. For companies that want to offer a currency that appeals to 73% of the world’s mobile phones users, Mobile Top-up is the perfect reward solution. It appeals to billions of prepaid phone users, is easy to redeem and essential.
