Globe, a leading telecommunications provider in the Philippines , has partnered with Iris Wireless, LLC for the reloading of Globe mobile prepaid phones through select 7-Eleven stores in US.
Globe subscribers in the US who need to top-up their cell phone credits or those of their friends and loved ones can use the VCom payment kiosks located at participating 7-Eleven stores throughout California, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Colorado, Texas, Florida, Utah, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware and the District of Columbia. Store locations can be found by visiting www.directrecharge.com.
Likewise, consumers may reload online with a credit or debit card using the intuitive, multi-lingual DirectRecharge website of Iris Wireless by visiting http://www.directrecharge.com.
Globe and Iris Wireless, earlier, signed an agreement for a fast, secure and convenient cross-border top-up that will also help Globe extend its reloading channels beyond the traditional sales network. With the availability of more reloading stations, Globe subscribers no longer have to fear having depleted accounts while traveling in the US . At the same time, they can send load credits to any Globe prepaid account in the Philippines .
“Consumers nowadays are relying heavily on the cellphone for social, entertainment, research and business purposes so they need easy access to reload stations whenever they need to top-up. Thus, we are thrilled with this partnership with Iris Wireless since it gives us an opportunity to reach out to the millions of Filipinos in the US by giving them another venue not only to reload their phones but also to send load credits to their relatives and friends in the Philippines,” said Vince Ong, Head of Globe International Sales.
