Most Singaporeans tend to buy a local pre-paid SIM card when they travel overseas since it is much cheaper than using their Singapore post-paid SIM in a foreign country. But for some working and living here, using a pre-paid SIM card has much more advantage to using a post-paid card. Mobile top up is an important monthly expense in peoples live.
Using a pre-paid SIM card helps to save costs off the frills provided by a post-paid plan. There are no subscription fees, registration charges, bundled services that you do not use and no binding contracts that charge you a hefty penalty fee should you need to break the contract. In fact, depending on a person’s needs, using a pre-paid SIM card can help them save over hundreds of dollars a year compared to a post-paid plan.
As most Singaporeans subscribe to post-paid SIM plans, you’d find that most pre-paid users are foreigners who are working in Singapore, or perhaps students or old folks who may not use their cellphones are regularly as others. This is why Rely has decided to launch a new service to enable these groups of people to top up their SIM-card first and pay later.
How it works
This service by Rely.sg allows pre-paid SIM card users to top-up their cards for free within a 30-day period. This is to help those who may have run out of prepaid card credits and still need to use their phones to ensure they stay connected to their families and friends. The service allows them to top up now and pay 30 days later with absolutely no extra fees or interest charged to the user.
It is also extremely hassle-free, allowing users to top-up their cards entirely online with the following 3 steps. The one-time signing-up process should take you around 10 minutes. Be sure to have your NRIC and income documents ready as you’d need to submit it during the verification process. Subsequently, you can top up and pay 30 day later within a click of a button.
