Skype users have the convenience of using the program virtually anywhere in the world as long as they have a mobile phone or other similar device. Now, purchasing Skype credits in Malaysia has never been simpler. People who use Skype on a regular basis know how important it is to have credits when you need them. The leading Internet telephone company, MOL, has coupled with Skype to make purchasing credits simpler. With MOL having more than 250,000 active users and Skype claiming 147,000 users just in Asia, this joint venture to make purchasing credits will benefit many.
Under a new agreement, customers who need to purchase credits can do so by simply exchanging MOLePoints e-vouchers directly from Skype. This eliminates the need for consumers to use credit cards. Using credit cards online in Malaysia has historically been a risky venture, but now, the middle step of putting credit card information online has been eliminated. Consumers can use the evouchers as currency to purchase Skype credits.
The process is easy and fast. Users only have to sign up for a free MOL account and also have an Internet banking account with certain participating banks, including Maybank, RHB Bank, Am Bank, and Public Bank. Once these accounts are established, customers only have to purchase the Skype credits as a debit transaction with their bank as a direct transaction. Once the transaction is completed, clients are able to immediately use the Skype credits.
However, purchasing credits from one of the participating banks is not the only option. Users who don’t have bank accounts with these banks can also purchase Skype credits from 15,000 payment outlets located nationwide including 7-Eleven, Popular Bookstore and various different cybercafes. As an ebay-owned company, Skype is continually looking for ways to make the process more efficient and convenient. Expanding payment and purchase options is just one of those ways.
Using Skype in Malaysia can connect users to other users all over the world. While there have been challenges for SEA users, Skype continues to search for ways to make the process easy and efficient. In order to use Skype to make calls, a user has to have credits. Those credits have historically been purchased using credit cards online. But Skype and MOL have partnered with one more way to make that purchase without using online credit card processing services. By eliminating one step in the process, users can now purchase credits directly from their bank or from participating retailers and exchange the purchased e-vouchers directly when making the calls. Purchasing Skype credits online in Malaysia can now be accomplished without placing important credit card information on the Internet.
