)-- KeKu, an online phone service and smartphone app that makes international calls as cheap and simple as local calls, today announced that its customers can now send each other prepaid calling credits right from their smartphone or computer. KeKu is the first major calling app to include this "international top-up" capability, giving customers a fast and cost-effective way to send prepaid credits home to loved ones. The service works with any mobile phone number, in over 90 nations around the world right from KeKu's website.
KeKu has become one of the world's most popular apps for cheap international calls, giving customers options for cheap high-quality calls from any mobile phone, landline or computer. KeKu's new Top-Up capability will enable immigrants to more easily connect with and financially support their international family and friends. As opposed to sending money through more traditional methods that carry high fees, such as wire transfers, KeKu subscribers can now send small gifts abroad in the form of prepaid airtime credits with the touch of a button.
"This is a fast cheap way for me to get prepaid credit back to my family back home in Ecuador -- credit they can use however they like to buy air time, SMS, and more," says Leonardo Campoverde. "I can do it all from the same place that I make my phone calls to them from -- KeKu. Just a couple of taps and the credit is sent, right from my phone or computer. It saves me time and money, and my family is happy because they can talk more."
The international top-up credit is made through KeKu's secure system and sent directly to the mobile phone number a customer has selected, including confirmation of the recipient’s mobile carrier. Both the sender and recipient get a confirmation that the credit was successfully delivered. KeKu also provides the sender with an option to include a custom message with the credit, such as “Happy Birthday!”
KeKu is working with mobile operators around the world to provide this instant top-up service, increasing the ease with which its customers can speak to their loved ones abroad. Simple pricing is published on the website. There are never any hidden fees, obligations or contracts. KeKu Top-Up offers the simplest solution to helping your family get in touch with you.
