Who we Are, What we Think, What we Do.

Announcing the world’s first open mobile recharge API!

Share Via:

We at mobikwik have managed to do that no one has done yet. We have created an open web based API which can be used to recharge or top-up your prepaid mobile from your mobile or PC browser.

While big network management companies ( Nokia Siemens Networks, Ericsson) have created electronic recharge mechanisms and comprehensive API’s for recharge, they are not available for the general public and are quite complicated to setup. Telecom carriers typically give these API’s out to a few distributors only  which then fan out to resellers.

Mobikwik team has taken the juice out of these API’s and condensed it into

1) 3 http based calls.

2) 2 MS word pages of documentation.

3) less than 1 hour setup time.

This API currently supports only 300+ million prepaid mobiles all across India for all mobile carriers. 🙂

Most importantly, anyone, just about anyone, is eligible to use this http  API to create :

a) a recharge widget for your website or blog to draw footfalls and create contests.  Provided you meet minimum traffic requirements, you can convert your blog or website into a killer money making machine!

b) a gadget or app for any mobile device.

c) a gadget or app for facebook,twitter,iGoogle,orkut,myspace and any other social network.

It is so simple that anyone with basic HTML and HTTP skills can set it up. Over coming months, we will be announcing many plug-n-play widgets to reduce setup time to less than 5 minutes . So, stay tuned.

Email us at [email protected] to get your hands on this API!

    Hi Bipin,
    How does one exactly make money from this? Are you trying to do some kind of affiliate marketing thing?

    Naman, if you can get minimum traffic using this API, our automatic margin management system will regularly update the commission in your mobikwik account as mobikwik balance.

    For example, if you sold inventory worth Rs 10,000 and your commission is Rs 200, it will be added to your mobikwik balance. This will happen on a regular basis so you can directly redeem this from your customers.
