Ding, the largest international mobile top-up platform, continues its global expansion with a new partnership with Korean fintech Hanpass. Under the new partnership Hanpass will now offer its millions of customers access to international mobile top-up from their mobile app, giving them instant access to Ding’s global network of 500+ mobile operators, across 140+ countries.
Hanpass customers with just a few clicks will be able to transfer airtime from Korea to the phone of family and friends back in their home country. International mobile top-up is the most efficient micro-value transfer option available to foreign workers looking to support those back home. The service will provide customers with a simple, safe and secure way to send mobile airtime top-up to their loved ones back home in the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam and other South East Asian countries. All credited in real-time, directly to the recipient’s mobile, and in local currency.
Commenting on the new partnership, Rupert Shaw, Chief Commercial Officer, of Ding said: “Ding is really gaining momentum in Asia and this new partnership further highlights this and also shows the appetite for international mobile top-up as a service add-on for remittance companies such as Hanpass.”
Furthermore: “This is a great integration of our strengths and will enable Hanpass to leverage Ding’s global network – to continue to offer their customers a first-class service and experience.”
This new partnership will enable a wide range of expats living in South Korea to send the gift of international airtime to family and friends. In the Philippines for example, some 96% of mobiles phones are of the prepaid variety, with half out of credit at any one time, so there is a significant need to keep these phones topped-up with airtime and data.
Kim Kyung Hoon, CEO of Hanpass said: “Hanpass is excited to work with Ding to help to connect our customers with their loved ones around the world. Innovative collaborations such as these will continue to shape global business models in the race to enhance customer experience and win and retain their loyalty.”
