IN AN effort to augment its already pervasive range of service channels, Sun Cellular has opened a prepaid reloading service through Security Bank Online.


“We tap on the sophistication of online banking to create a convenient and reliable channel for our customers to reload their sun prepaid accounts anytime. Now, Security Bank Online clients can get 24/7 access to Sun load using just their gadgets and an internet connection,” said Michele Curran, vice president for marketing of Sun Business, Sun Cellular’s corporate solutions unit.


This new service channel accommodates reloading transactions for Sun prepaid, fixed load and easy line accounts. Subscribers can log on to their Security Bank Online account and choose the option for prepaid reloading. This will let them transfer credits from their account to their mobile number in the form of prepaid load.


Recently, Sun Cellular has also partnered with Banco de Oro Unibank to incorporate Sun Cellular prepaid reloading service into the existing point of sales of their different branches. This gives Sun subscribers an alternative means for reloading besides going to their neighborhood retailers and sari-sari stores.


Curran also said further to partnerships with banks and financial institutions for postpaid bills payment, Sun Cellular has also embarked on using these systems to better serve prepaid service patrons. Sun has then opened prepaid reloading via outlets of 7-Eleven, Cebuana Lhuillier, Netopia, Global Pinoy Remittance & Services and LoadCentral.


“Through synergies and partnerships like this, we cap off the customer experience by giving them a stronger network support and a far-reaching array of service channels. Beyond 24/7 communications, Sun Cellular is set to stand for convenience and reliability of service, as well,” Curran adds.


Sun Cellular is a member of the Philippine Long Distance Co. Group.
