Using the PreTUPS™ Direct Selling Agent application, telecom operators can enroll subscribers as direct agents. After the enrollment, which is a quick and simple self-registration process, subscribers are on-boarded as direct agents and can act as full-fledged retailers and begin transacting. The direct agents can purchase stock from the telecom operator online and pay via digital channels, such as cards or digital wallets. Once the stock is purchased, the direct agents will receive incentives or cashback. Once the stock is available with them, the direct agents can recharge the mobile connection of their family, friends and acquaintances. The PreTUPS™ Direct Selling Agent application also offers gift recharges, electronic vouchers and value added services (VAS) recharge.

First, it will help telecom operators to increase their distribution reach, especially during the on-going COVID-19 pandemic when the availability of recharge retailers and related services have been curtailed due to lockdown and restriction on people’s movement. Also, the mobile application will help mobile subscribers earn incentives or cashbacks for recharging the prepaid mobile connection of other subscribers. This can provide additional income to many consumers, including students, cab drivers, insurance agents et al. Lastly, people who are unable to visit retailer after their mobile balance or validity has ended, will be able to instantly get recharge and remain connected to their family and friends in these challenging times.”
