Ukash has vast experience in providing an alternative payment method for online shoppers around the world and Mobytop users will benefit from using cash to load international airtime securely, without the need for a credit or debit card, reported Ecommerce Journal.
Reportedly, Ukash has already made cash payment services available in Australia, Germany, Italy, Poland and Spain recently, in collaboration with epay, the prepaid division of US electronic payment services provider, Euronet Worldwide.
