Vodafone Australia today announced that prepaid customers can recharge their credit using PayPal.
Vodafone Australia follows in the footstops of Vodafone Italy, which launched a similar scheme in August.
Customers simply register for a PayPal account online and select from either direct debit or credit card payment. Once their PayPal account is activated, they can recharge their Vodafone Prepaid Cap or Extras Pack directly from their mobile phone. "This is great news for Vodafone customers and is a perfect solution that is specifically designed to support mobile communications products and services", said Russell Hewitt, CEO of Vodafone Australia.
The PayPal payment engine authenticates a customer's identity with a user name and password, with customers receiving a recharge PIN via SMS or e-mail.
