Vesta Corporation Launches DelayPay Installment Plan for Mobile Operators

Vesta Corporation announced the launch of DelayPay, a retail installment program for wireless refills. The new service enables customers to refill their mobile accounts immediately and pay the amount due over 30 days. Currently live in production as a pilot with a major operator in the U.S., DelayPay is offered to select customers who are paying their mobile bills online. Late payments are a major concern for mobile operators, both in terms of lost revenue and the potential for increased churn. According to payment data based on over one billion mobile transactions processed by Vesta, nearly 25% of prepaid consumers pay after their expiration date each month. DelayPay gives approved consumers a flexible option to manage spending, pay on time and ensure continued phone service. Vesta evaluates each applicant by leveraging extensive knowledge of the prepaid mobile customer base and proprietary risk profiles. Once approved, the customer's wireless account is refilled in real time and the customer pays for the refill in two equal installments over the following 30 days. Consumers are charged a single $5 flat rate charge for each DelayPay.
