Credit at the touch of a button with 2degrees pre-pay
Running out of credit, or worrying about running out of credit on your pre-pay mobile account is now a thing of the past with the launch of 2degrees Auto Top Up.
Auto Top Up is a handy new service from to 2degrees that allows you to top up your pre-pay balance at the touch of a button.
“We know that nearly 70% of New Zealanders are on pre-pay,” said 2degrees’ Sales and Marketing Manager, Larrie Moore.
“They are on pre-pay because they like to be in control of their mobile expenditure and don’t want to be locked into lengthy contracts. But our customers have told us that what they don’t like about pre-pay is the worry of running out of credit at an inopportune moment, or having to pop out to the shop every time they want to top up,” he says.
Research undertaken by 2degrees shows that of the reasons preventing people from switching from a post-pay plan to pre-pay, around half relate to the hassle of topping up and the fear of running out of credit.
“The launch of Auto Top Up eliminates all the hassle and gives New Zealanders a unique pre-pay/post-pay hybrid,” said Larrie.
With 2degrees Auto Top Up, when a customer’s balance drops below $2.50 they’ll get a text asking whether they want to be topped up automatically. They just need to text back “Y” or “y” and 2degrees will do the topping up for them.
To set up 2degrees Auto Top Up customers just need to register their credit or debit card against their account and choose an amount between $20 and $100 that they want to top up each time they run low on credit.
