Tech Data Mobile and Compare52 offer resellers and retailers an intuitive way to sell airtime

Basingstoke, 01 July 2016 – Tech Data Mobile has formed a partnership with airtime comparison specialist to provide resellers and retailers with a simple and intuitive way to offer the very best and latest airtime services to their customers.

Compare52’s plug-in software can be used on ecommerce sites, enabling resellers and retailers to offer airtime additions to mobile phone and device sales. The easily-integrated solution will find the most relevant and available options from all the major providers and present them to the customer immediately, allowing them to get the best possible combination of device and contract and helping reseller and retailer businesses to drive increased revenues.

Simon Smale, Director of Business Development and Services at Tech Data Mobile, stated: “Compare52 is a simple and elegant way to sell airtime, without all the complexity of setting up agreements with providers or any complex order processing. That is all taken care of in the background. It makes sense for resellers and retailers to offer airtime contracts – for voice and data – alongside smartphones and mobile devices on their websites. It is a great way of providing additional value and boosting sales and profitability.”

Resellers will receive commissions on any airtime sales they make and by selling airtime they will also encourage customers to look for additional add-ons and services, Smale noted. “Making sure customers don’t have to go anywhere else to get everything they are looking for is important, so Compare52 will also help businesses to drive revenues, maximise their opportunities and retain more customers.”

Installing and integrating the Compare52 plug-in is very easy and can be done very quickly. Once implemented it works as a seamless element of the reseller’s or retailer’s website.
