The service provider claims it’s a first for Australia.
Vodafone customers can register for a PayPal account online and select from either direct debit or credit card payment.
Once the PayPal account is activated, they can recharge their prepaid cap or extras pack directly from their handset via the Vodafone live! mobile content portal, according to Vodafone.
The PayPal payment engine authenticates the customer’s identity with a unique user name and password.
At the completion of the transaction, the customer receives a recharge PIN via SMS or email, with the prepaid credit redeemed with a free call to 1555, the carrier said.
