Pineapple’s main Service is to facilitate the sale of prepaid mobile airtime top-ups. Using your Pineapple Account, you can add credit to prepaid mobile phones in your country or abroad on behalf of your customers without having to hold physical inventory or stock. Pineapple also enables cloud communication products like Voice, SMS, Messaging and Auth.
Airtime refers to the value credited to a mobile subscriber’s prepaid account. The recipient of this airtime may use it according to their respective operator’s Terms and Conditions. In most cases, airtime credits may only be used for domestic and international calls, to send text message, or to purchase mobile content.
Airtime credit has a limited validity period, which can vary from operator to operator and on the product that is sold.
The net amount received by a recipient of an airtime top-up may deviate from the product’s face value because of the applicability of taxes in the country it is received in.
