Mobile use of airtime connects human activity worldwide with approximately 4.5 billion prepaid users in the world. Who pay upfront by cash, digital wallet or card to load mobile minutes balance to use their phone. Not by monthly bill.
A huge opportunity to 'wrap' airtime with other digital products, in a one time or recurring value proposition.
Pineapple now connects with 907 telecom carriers in 156 countries, which serve 2 billion prepaid users. Anyone can load airtime balance to any prepaid phone and earn PNPL cashback points. Presently we are validating product market fit and releasing to our inner circle of early retail merchants and users. During this phase PNPL points can be used for buying more airtime. In the future PNPL points will be linked to a card which can be used to spend the PNPL earned.
We will release a number of innovative financial services within the Pineapple app experience.
- Lending on great terms.
- Fee-free money remittances.
- Micro size investments.
- Airtime exchange with digital assets.
- Airtime staking
