RECHARGE SERVICES FOR YOUR BUSINESS

Single Integration

Enable Mobile/DTH and Data Card recharges on your website/App/Panel along with bill payments without writing any extra code. The existing integration with BillAvenue automatically supports recharge services.

Recharge Plan API

Invalid recharge denominations lead to failed transactions resulting in a poor user experience. BillAvenue's Recharge Plan API simplifies the recharge process by allowing your customers to select valid from recharge plans offered by the operators. These plans are updated periodically from the operator's websites, making it easy for customers to complete their recharges quickly and successfully.

Dynamic Switching

BillAvenue is connected with operators via multiple aggregators. In event of downtimes with any of the aggregators BillAvenue's intelligent algorithms dynamically switches the transactions and routes them through another aggregator. This ensures 100% uptime and consistently maintains highest success ratio.

Highest Success Rate

Our smart and efficient Mobile Number Portability (MNP) API checks and detects the current operator in real-time and processes the recharge successfully with the correct operator. This reduces transaction failures, increases customer satisfaction and provides highest success rate in the industry.
