The Prepaid Company
At the Prepaid Company, we know that the growing demand for data, airtime and mobile commerce has created a world in which prepaid is by far the most favourable payment method.
We are the leading distributor of prepaid products for all the major SA network operators, and we have trusted proprietary technology that guarantees purchasing efficiency and sound inventory control.
We supply retail chains, informal retail/spaza shops, and colleges/universities. Our “business-in-a-box” model encourages the individual entrepreneur within any community to start his or her own business selling our products and services, and we are proud of the way that this encourages economic development, especially in rural and disadvantaged communities. We use a combination of online distribution, and physical distribution via trucks and support staff . Our support teams visit rural areas and build relationships with merchants. They provide back up, advice and training. This business model has proved to be sustainable in both the formal and informal sectors.
Currently, we have 13 000 of our own points of presence in South Africa , and have access to a further 20 000 points of sale in retailers and at petrol stations. In total, we distribute to over 150 000 points of presence. We connect up to 700 000 new sim-cards each month and distribute 80 million bulk print vouchers per month.
Beyond South Africa, we have an active market presence in India, Brazil, Greece, Cyprus, Israel, Ireland, Holland, Bahrain, Namibia, Tanzania, Ghana, Mozambique, The DRC, Rwanda, Nigeria, and the Ivory Coast.
At the Prepaid Company, we are responsible for supplier agreements and procurement for the Blue Label Telecoms Group, where the emphasis is on long term agreements on mutually beneficial terms.
