SMS Recharge is one of the biggest hits at Today, 30th August, around 1 am IST in the morning, the 15000th recharge was done using SMS. Yes, at 1 am!  The SMS was sent by Lenin Khaidem Singh, a student of PESIT, Bangalore, one of our regular users and he got the recharge within a matter of seconds.

To use SMS Recharge, a user needs to have money in his/her mobikwik balance. Several months ago, when we first launched the SMS Recharge, most folks were skeptical, since no one would think a startup can be trusted with their money, and that too in advance! These 15k transactions ( and growing 50% month over month) are a testimony to the fact that we have crossed the trust barrier.  Every one of these users of SMS Recharge was acquired organically, specifically through Word-of-Mouth, which makes the achievement more gratifying.
