TDM’s reseller partners will be able to offer airtime through Manchester-based firm’s widget
Tech Data Mobile has partnered with airtime reseller Compare52 to offer its airtime widget to reseller and retail partners.
Compare52, which first launched in September of last year, provides a plug-in widget comparing airtime deals from operators including EE, O2, Vodafone and a number of MVNOs.
It is already partnered with Ingram Micro, but has also signed up Tech Data, who will offer its widget to resellers looking to offer airtime bundles.
TDM director of business development and services Simon Smale said: “Compare52 is a simple and elegant way to sell airtime, without all the complexity of setting up agreements with providers or any complex order processing.
“That is all taken care of in the background. It makes sense for resellers and retailers to offer airtime contracts – for voice and data – alongside smartphones and mobile devices on their websites. It is a great way of providing additional value and boosting sales and profitability.”
Resellers who sign up to Compare52’s widget will receive a commission on any airtime bundles they sell, with the customer’s contract handled by the carrier.
