With the invention and the evolution of internet, came lots of associated benefits. Online recharge is one such positives of having internet connection at home, office and even your mobile phone.
Pros of online recharge
The best and the foremost reason is that for recharging your connection online you do not have to step out of your home. Unlike some years back, where you needed to keep a track of the balance in the prepaid connection and had to visit the local shopping complex or the brand showroom for recharge and payment of bills. Online recharge is something that can happen from your home or office, bus or metro, train or cab – irrespective of where you are – you just need to have active internet connection to do so.
Online recharge can be done at any time of the day. Since the process is enabled through technology and is not to a great extent dependent on the availability of a man or manual process, you can recharge your connection at midnight, early morning, late afternoon – basically any time of the day that suits you. Also virtual stores – like the company website or the reseller’s site or App never really shut down like a physical store – hence the recharge can be done any day of the week – there are no holidays or off days.
Another big advantage of recharging online, especially via the reseller site is that you can recharge any kind of connection that the reseller is tied-up with as well as a recharge for all major service providers of a particular industry from the same website or App. You don’t even have to hop from one website to another. It is all so centralized. While of course, if you wish to go the other way that is want to recharge and pay bills of each individual service provider at the company showroom or even the local convenience store, you can imagine the kind of workload that you have invited for yourself.
One extra benefit of online recharge is that the customer gets to enjoy lots of offers; cash back deals, discounts on the package prices etc. These are additional benefits that all providers offer in some form or other to attract more customers and gain their loyalty.
Online recharge does not involve payment of cash. This is a big benefit for people who do not like to deal in cash because it is unsafe or otherwise. This process of recharge is facilitated by credit cards, debit cards and net banking with trusted payment gateways at the backend – thereby all your personal information is well-guarded and there are minimal chances of virtual theft.
For one, you need to be very careful with typing the connection id or the number against which the recharge needs to be done because wrong entries can result in someone else’s connection getting recharged. Secondly, you need to be careful in selecting trusted resellers to carry out the recharge – after all, you will share your banking and card details with the site.
