ROTTERDAM, December 2018 – Alphacomm Solutions and Alphacomm Digital Commerce team up to launch brand new WhatsApp top-up service In Germany. The service has been made available through the popular Aufladen.de platform.
Prepaid phone cards have always been popular in Germany. In 2016, approximately 23 million Germans used a prepaid card. However, while prepaid phone cards allow for freedom and financial control, topping up often meant visiting a store or memorising a dedicated phone number. In recent times, this has gotten easier, but it has never been as convenient as with the introduction of top-ups via WhatsApp.
WhatsApp top-ups on Aufladen.de
Payment experts at Alphacomm Solutions recently teamed up with Alphacomm’s Digital Commerce division in the launch of a brand new feature on Aufladen.de; one of the most popular mobile phone top-up websites in Germany. Mobile phone users all across Germany can now top-up their phones via WhatsApp by simply engaging with the Aufladen.de chatbot.
How it works?
The mobile phone customer can enter the chat via a widget on the Aufladen.de website. The conversation is easily initiated by either typing ‘Aufladen’ or ‘Hello’. As the conversation proceeds, the bot presents the user with a list of available prepaid providers, asks the amount (in euros) the user wants to top-up with and eventually provides the user with a link to the payment method of choice. After the payment has been verified, a confirmation follows and the credit is quickly added to the account.
All transactions on the Aufladen.de platform are secure thanks to the integration of Alphacomm Solutions’ payment systems and anti-fraud measures.
At present time, the service only covers direct top-ups, with support for third-party prepaid credit providers slated for 2019. Participating providers are Base, Callmobile, Congstar, E-Plus, Fyve, MTV Mobile, Netzclub, O2, Ortel Mobile, Otelo, RTLMobile, Simguthaben, Telekom, Vodafone and Vybemobile.
