Lagos - Nigeria's leading mobile network operator, MTN is ushering in a new era of comfort for its high value customers through a partnership with banks in the country.
The new service called MTN Auto Top-Up is set to enable customers conveniently and routinely top the airtime on their phones through their bank accounts.
Larry Annetts, Chief Marketing Officer, MTN Nigeria, said that the new service enables subscribers to recharge their mobile account or pay their bills from available deposits in their bank accounts with ease and convenience.
The service, he added, is yet another addition to the growing plethora of innovative ways by which MTN customers can replenish airtime credit.
“Our objective is to deliver better value to our customers than anyone else.
“The innovative offering is consistent with keeping our customers in tune with tools that enhance their productivity. This service brings a new level of convenience to our esteemed customers as it is designed to deliver speed and simplicity,” he said.
Echoing same sentiments was the Inter-Bank Settlement Systme (NBSS) executive director, Christabel Onyejekwe, who said the service would give MTN’s subscribers an easy and very comfortable means of auto-recharging.
“The service leverages NIBSS inter operational capabilities to ensure smooth and seamless payment from subscribers’ account in any Nigerian bank with no Payment Card required," Onyejekwe said.
She said that to make use of the service, MTN subscribers need to log on to their bank internet platforms and perform a one-off recharge of their airtime or set up a recurring standing order mandate for airtime top up on any date of their choice.
Whatever option chosen, the equivalent amount of money is debited from the deposit account and the airtime value is credited to the phone.
Speaking on the innovation, Wale Goodluck, Corporate Services Executive, MTN Nigeria said, “This service is in line with our commitment to elivering a bold new digital world to our esteemed customers wherever they may be".
He assured that MTN will continue to enrich the lives of its customers by providing them with a robust bouquet of innovative products and services.
