  • Kinacu Balance is the technological solution to carry out on-line sales of products and/or prepaid services. In this way, clients can top up their balances through the distribution of credit in an electronic way all throughout the sales structure.

  • Kinacu Voucher offers its clients a different option to top up their prepaid balance.

    Kinaku Voucher allows the commercialization of products and prepaid services generating electronic pins with identical characteristics as the ones provided for physical cards.

    It represents a hybrid solution between the selling of balance both virtually (on-line) and physically. Kinaku Voucher can adapt to places in which communication costs are expensive or where there is no operating time available.

    This solution allows the generation of pins in a safe way, without running the risk of error making during the exchange of these pins between the providers of the service and the prepaid platform. In this way, the problems of time and cost of traditional cards' logistics are eliminated.

    The client selects among the available recharging amounts, the seller enters the data and the voucher is immediately printed with information about the operation, the unique sequence of digits (pin) which the client will add to his prepaid service balance, the amount of money topped up and, the logo of the intermediary company. The client gets a printed copy of the ticket.

    The transaction is conducted by means of the electronic sale point, making use of its POS devices network or being complemented with Kinacu Add-in using PC terminals as sales points.

    Kinacu Voucher allows the reutilization of technological resources and offers the client a printed medium for balance recharging.
