Mobile progress: Beeline and ABA buzzed for top-ups

CAMBODIAN mobile provider Beeline will begin offering top-ups through ABA Bank’s ATMs and via online banking.

The new service will allow Beeline subscribers to access PIN codes in order to top up their accounts, worth between US$2 and $5 in value each, without the use of scratch cards.

“It is important for us to provide our clients with new services and to offer the latest technologies and solutions for payments and transactions,” said Juveris Tenisons, chief marketing officer at ABA Bank, after the deal which was inked last week.

ABA presently has 28 ATMs operating in the Kingdom, with plans to install more next year, he said.

The bank signed a similar agreement with Beeline’s rival Smart Mobile in August.

Beeline is a subsidiary of Vimpelcom, a Netherlands-based mobile service provider.

In August, the firm announced its “Easy Fill” program, which is a top-up service that does not require scratch cards. Over the counter top-up is available at Beeline-branded counters and sales outlets in 11 Cambodian provinces. The “Easy Fill” service is available on amounts between $0.50 and $500, according to a press release.
