US electronic payment solutions provider Vesta Corporation has launched its mobile recharge services for Mexican mobile telephony operator Telcel, according to a press release from Vesta.
According to Vesta, its payment services for Telcel's prepaid mobile products allow customers to pay for airtime, data plans and other services without having to visit a retail point of sale.
Web payment is Vesta's first offering for Telcel customers, allowing them to fund their prepaid broadband accounts on the internet using a credit card. Through a Telcel-branded website, Vesta will manage payment requests, validate cardholder data and deliver real-time account credits.
In the coming months, Telcel will extend Vesta-powered reloads to include prepaid wireless plus IVR, WAP, live agent and text-to-refill charges. Other Vesta products being considered for implementation include Auto-Pay, which allows customers to regularly top up their accounts based on a specific date or available balance.
Vesta said it will fully cover Telcel for any transaction-related fraud, while also protecting consumer credit card data through full PCI compliance.
