PrePay Solutions was one of the first companies to combine the mobile and prepaid experience by developing the UK’s first pay by SMS programme, Splash Plastic. PrePay Solutions’ approach was to imagine the best possible customer experience, which is buying a prepaid card instantly, without a debit or credit card, and then successfully delivered a technical solution to bring this vision to life. Since then, PrePay Solutions has consistently been at the leading edge of the prepaid mobile market, which was illustrated by the launch in 2011, together with EE, of the UK’s first major contactless prepaid card: The Orange Cash prepaid MasterCard®.
Just two years later, PrePay Solutions supported the launch of the Orange Cash mobile app, available on both Androids and iOS. Using this app, cardholders were able to check their balance and transaction history, load funds using a debit/credit card, redeem their Orange Cash points for Orange minutes and texts, and set up balance notifications – all directly from their mobile device. Like many mobile operators, EE has been moving into financial services via mobile payments. As such, PrePay Solutions was selected, along with other key members of the value chain, to deliver the end to end solution for EE Cash on Tap in partnership with EE and MasterCard®, marking one of the first NFC payment solutions in prepaid and the entire UK payments industry.
One of PrePay Solutions’ core values is to develop innovative solutions for our clients that will enhance the cardholder’s experience. To this end, we have recently developed a QR code solution, which gives cardholders the ability to simply scan the QR Code printed on the back of the card in order to obtain a real-time balance on their smartphone.
