PLDT Global has partnered with Reloadly, an international airtime top-up and digital goods solution provider, to give businesses and their developer teams plug-and-play access to PLDT Global’s network.

Under this partnership, digital businesses can integrate seamlessly to PLDT Global networks all over the world through Reloadly’s Application Programming Interface (APIs).

This supports the growing demand from the global developer community for innovative airtime solutions for the fintech, NGO, cryptocurrency, e-commerce, and customer rewards industries.

The partnership also seeks to transform the lives of clients, accelerating the deployment of high-speed data networks and closing the digital divide.

Acting as an airtime aggregator, Reloadly provides the world’s first dedicated platform for connecting to the global mobile network.

Within this platform is a growing toolkit of airtime software, including Reloadly’s airtime API, widget, plugin, SDK, GitHub projects and more, as well as a vast multilingual library of developer documentation to build open-source airtime solutions.


“Our partnership reflects PLDT Global’s commitment to make digital solutions more accessible to Filipinos wherever they are in the world,” explained PGC Global CEO Albert Villa-Real.

“This will position PLDT Global to offer a more convenient option for our customers to make digital transactions, including paying bills and sending load to their loved ones,” he added.

“This fosters our vision of enhancing connectivity for migrant Filipinos and their families back home.”

“Reloadly is a startup with global ambitions that enables users of our airtime software toolkit to easily integrate with top mobile operators like PLDT Global,” noted Michel Francis, CEO of Reloadly.

“The vast majority of the world — about 78 percent — still depend on prepaid plans,” he pointed out.

“Our mission is to reinvent and break down barriers in the global telco industry by empowering developers and brands to fuel mobile access in markets across the world, most of which have been underserved for far too long.”

The alliance makes it possible to create, customize and integrate airtime services for creative and innovative new business lines.

Reloadly, Inc. has direct connections to over 800 operators worldwide and offers a “pay as you go” platform with plug-and-play technology.

PLDT Global Corporation (PGC), the international arm of PLDT Inc., is a technology services company that provides communications infrastructure and platforms to carriers, enterprise customers and distribution partners for over 20 years.
