The operator teams up with First National Bank to offer prepaid users an extra channel to purchase airtime.
The country`s newest cellular operator, 8ta, has expanded its distribution channels to provide greater reach to SA`s prepaid market.
8ta has entered into collaboration with First National Bank (FNB), and prepaid customers can now purchase airtime through the bank`s electronic channels, including cellphone and online banking and ATMs.
Managing executive at 8ta Amith Maharaj says: “8ta continues to source accessible and convenient channels for its prepaid customers. We keep on exploring potential channels to make the buying of airtime easier for our customers.
“With this collaboration, our customers can now enjoy the convenience of accessing airtime anywhere and anytime, from as little as R10 up to R1 000, and any flexi amount in-between.”
Maharaj says customers will also be able to buy airtime for someone else via these channels. “The recharge is instant and customers still qualify for all 8ta promotions when purchasing through FNB channels.”
To use the cellphone banking option for the purchase of airtime, customers need to dial *130*321#. It is not necessary to have airtime in order to recharge. Alternatively, 8ta subscribers can visit www.fnb.mobi or login to www.fnb.co.za.
Maharaj says the purchase of 8ta airtime from ATMs is available to FNB customers, as well as non-FNB customers.
“8ta has been working hard to advance its distribution channels, and currently has over 80 000 points of sale for its products, including its own six flagship stores,” he concludes.
