Mi-Pay’s Top-up Payment Platform To Host International Reloadable Calling Card Top-up For UK’s Leading Retailer
Tesco Telecom, who recently launched its International Calling Card service, has selected mobile payments specialist Mi-Pay to supply a new top-up service to its operation, to meet the needs of its customers.

Mi-Pay handles all transactional data between the customer portal, the bank clearing house and Tesco Telecom. In addition to payment, billing and registration, Mi-Pay offers full operational support, risk management; transaction security and regulatory compliances.
