Major West African telecoms operator, Glo Mobile has introduced E-top up service to make airtime recharge easier and more flexible for its subscribers in Benin Republic.

With Glo E-TopUp service, subscribers can get their account recharged anytime and anywhere without the use of recharge cards.

The E-TopUp service comes with a secret code which is an added advantage in that environment.

In a statement, Glo Mobile Benin said its subscribers wishing to use the electronic recharge option should simply dial *152#. The secret code is subsequently sent to the subscriber’s phone. With this code, a subscriber can top up credit without disclosing his/her phone number to the vendor.

According to the Head of Business, Glo Mobile Benin, Mr. Femi Ogunlusi, the anonymity of the subscriber’s phone number is one of the advantages of the new E-TopUp service in the Benin telecoms market.

“Considering that the average Beninois is security conscious, the privacy of his/her personal identity – phone number is of high importance to him.The Glo E-TopUp service is therefore meeting his/her need in a special way, as he/she can recharge electronically with anonymity”, he said.

In addition, the E-TopUp is a “most convenient, stress-free and hassle-free recharging platform for Glo subscribers anytime and from anywhere within Benin Republic.”

Ogunlusi explained that Glo Mobile Benin introduced E-TopUp because Glo, in all its operations, identifies with the peculiar needs of its subscribers and develops products to meet them in ways that guarantee optimum value for money.
