“This partnership is a great addition to our large scale expansion of international telecommunications” said Michel Poignant, CEO of Paytoo. “I’m proud to say we are accomplishing our goal of assisting mobile costumers with the convenience they seek.

XY Prepago (a GTEL group company) and Paytoo (a universal mobile services provider) reached an agreement that will allow the joint provision of virtual and telecommunication services from any mobile phone in Ecuador and the world. The agreement was ratified in Miami by Santiago Arroyo, Product Innovation Manager of the G-Tel Group, through its XY Prepago business unit and by Michel Poignant, CEO of Paytoo.

This alliance aims to develop mobile commerce and international telecommunications supported by an integrated platform of prepaid virtual VISA international credit cards that facilitate monetary transactions and purchases reducing the cost of local and international calls in the country.

With Paytoo and XY Prepago, customers will be able to make local and international long distance calls, transfer credits, pay bills, pay merchants and check their balance and withdraw money in real-time and securely.

XY Prepago and Paytoo have worked together to offer Ecuador the first complete mobile telecommunications solution that brings together a complete suite of services, an International GSM SIM card, used instead of the regular carrier card, which will allow customers to make calls, send SMS messages and have access to voicemail in over 230 countries worldwide, with up to 80% savings on regular roaming tariffs. Paytoo users will be able to call other Paytoo users for free via VoIP as well as make calls via SMS call back.

“It’s a great opportunity for us. Launching Paytoo in Ecuador will introduce new technology into society that will allow people to have access to a complete suite of advanced telecom services,” said Fausto Valencia, CEO of XY Prepago. “Our goal is for any person to walk out of their house with only a cell phone and be able to pay bills, call anywhere in the world or top-up a cell phone any where in the world, and soon much more”

By getting a free Paytoo account, customers will have access to multiple services that let them use their balance to make calls, pay for services and make purchases online or offline.

Paytoo has a strategic alliance with recognized international partners that allows the company to offer a prepaid bankcard that can be used anywhere Mastercard® is available as well as a virtual VISA credit card that will allow its users to make purchases online and payments by phone at any time.

“This partnership is a great addition to our large scale expansion of international telecommunications” said Michel Poignant, CEO of Paytoo. “I’m proud to say we are accomplishing our goal of assisting mobile costumers with the convenience they seek, in tight cooperation with XY Prepago”

This system will save customers time and other risks immediately, and it is very quick and easy to use. With Paytoo customers can purchase event tickets, can add credit via the web or via their phone with the Paytoo application as well as between Paytoo accounts. Customers will also be able to pay all over the world through various methods like contactless stickers and barcode. Thanks to this innovative and strategic alliance, all this is possible while using one unified balance.
