hyperWALLET, a leading provider of global payment solutions and TransferTo, a global airtime transfer company have recently announced their partnership to offer cross-border airtime transfer for Canada. Mobile payment market is still evolving worldwide and players like hyperWALLET, Obopay, boku and FIRETHORN have emerged as the early leaders with their innovative and breakthrough offerings.

The recent hyperWALLET and TransferTo partnership is a ‘first of its kind’ arrangement in Canada and provides a easy, hassle free way of sending airtime credits to mobile phones, across more than 70 wireless carriers in 25 countries worldwide. Many carriers across continents have advertised the idea of ‘One World’ services to consumers, thereby ensuring a seamless and user friendly experience to customers irrespective of their geographical location. Global airtime top-up services are crucial in order to ensure that customers can top-up their airtime anywhere in the world.

On the occasion of this launch, Lisa Shields, CEO of hyperWALLET Systems Inc. said

“Cross border remittances continue to be a major driving force for migrants sending value home to relatives in other countries, particularly for ethnic communities within Canada. Through this innovative initiative, hyperWALLET is providing Canadian residents with a new service that complements cross border money transfer via the sending of small value airtime credits. It enables ethnic communities to purchase airtime minutes to top-up and recharge the prepaid mobile phones of friends and family living abroad, on a worldwide basis.

We are excited to partner with TransferTo in this initiative, as we believe the untapped Canadian market will benefit from TransferTo’s extensive expertise and service coverage. hyperWALLET’s position as a global payments provider is a great complement for the TransferTo™ airtime platform, and their airtime top-up service provides Canadian consumers and expatriate communities with a valuable and innovative way to send airtime credits worldwide.”

Eric Barber, CEO of TransferTo believes that this partnership will result in a strong value addition for users.

“We are enthusiastic about this partnership with hyperWALLET as they introduce global mobile airtime top-up services to the Canadian market. The combination of TransferTo’s innovative service and hyperWALLET’s state-of-the-art payment platform provides strong added value for users. With broad country and mobile network operator coverage, our service has a global reach, is secure, user-friendly and real-time.”

Canadians can sign up at www.hyperwallet.com or use the integrated hyperWALLET service within their Credit Union’s online banking website. Once their hyperWALLET account has been funded, senders simply enter the mobile phone number of the recipient, a greeting message, and select from numerous airtime voucher amounts available. Transactions are processed in real-time, and both the sender and receiver are immediately notified by SMS text message.
