Tune Talk’s cashless top-up for prepaid cards with PayPal

- Tune Talk subscribers can use PayPal as a digital wallet
- Can set minimum threshold limit for default top-up
MOBILE prepaid service Tune Talk has rolled out a cashless auto top-up service in collaboration with global online payment company PayPal.
With this new service, for the first time Tune Talk subscribers can use PayPal as a digital wallet and top up their prepaid mobile accounts.
Subscribers just need to sign up for free for a PayPal account at www.paypal.com/my and link it with their credit or debit card. After signing up, Tune Talk subscribers may then log on to http://www.tunetalk.com/ and choose to top up their prepaid mobile accounts online with PayPal.
“We are always looking for ways to provide our subscribers with utmost convenience and a great service experience,” said Tune Talk chief executive officer Jason Lo (pic, left). “Now, Tune Talk subscribers can talk all day long and top up at any time of the day as there is no closing time with this service, unlike physical outlets.”
“We are delighted to offer Tune Talk mobile prepaid customers a faster, safer and hassle-free way for them to automatically top up their Tune Talk mobile prepaidcards using PayPal as their digital wallet online.
“This cashless payment solution is very convenient and saves precious time for Malaysians who can skip traffic and travel time to a store and now top up their prepaid cards online with PayPal,” said Klas Hesselman (pic, right), head of marketing, PayPal South-East Asia and India.
"Today’s announcement enables Tune Talk mobile prepaid customers with a safer online top-up as PayPal does not share financial information of our users, thereby increasing the security of the online transaction and protecting their privacy,” he added.
Upon signing up for the Auto Top Up service, Tune Talk subscribers can set standing instructions for the top-up value of RM10, RM20, RM30 and RM50 to RM100, as they would in a regular online banking transaction.
Subscribers also have the additional flexibility of setting a minimum threshold limit for default top-up (default amount is RM10). Once a subscriber’s Tune Talk mobile prepaid credit drops below RM10, an automatic top-up will be triggered via the PayPal account which helps prevent cut-offs in the midst of a phone call.
