COREMOBILE Group, operators of Quickairtime.com, an online airtime recharge platform, has introduced a loan facility for airtime vendors.

 This, according to the service providers, would make it possible for airtime merchants to loan money, do sales and refund at the end of the sales with no risk to the loaning bank as all payments are handled by Quick Airtime. The app which is available at quickairtime.com/downloads allows merchants to sell remotely and remain competitive.

   While explaining how the new loan facility works, the General Manager B2B of Coremobile Projects, Elvis Inwang, said all the vendors had to do to be part of the initiative was to first of all, register as a merchant on www.quickairtime.com/merchants, then give out their registered email address to their customers which they would use as discount code while installing the app on their smart phones, android, etc.

“Any time they want to top up their phones and there is no money in the Merchant’s ‘Wallet’, they can pay with their ATM Card and the airtime is sold from the loan facility while the merchant’s commission will be deposited in his account”, Inwang explained noting that the introduction of Quick Airtime by Coremobile has helped recharge cards and VTU vendors to remain in their business that was threatened by the recent venture of Nigerian banks into airtime top up.

     Speaking about the convenience provided by the facility to both merchants and consumers of airtime, Head of Research, Coremobile, Uduak Asuquo said; “We are committed to providing the best experience in the world. Consumers buy faster and the merchants can sell faster, easier and without financial limits.
