Sify Technologies announced that Sify.com will facilitate local payment methods which will simplify users’ experience while purchasing Skype credit or subscriptions to make calls to Mobile & Landline numbers outside India. Skype offers some of the most competitive calling rates while calling abroad from India and this partnership will help Indian consumers access these offerings from Skype more easily.
Previously, Skype users in India could buy Skype credit or subscriptions only with International credit cards. Skype users can now also buy their credit or subscriptions from www.sify.com/skype using Indian Debit/Credit Cards and Net Banking.
Commenting on the partnership, Mr. Kamal Nath, Chief Executive Officer, Sify Technologies Limited, said, “With increased globalization, Indian consumers must be able to collaborate with anyone, anywhere and anytime. Sify is making it easier for Indian Skype users to collaborate with almost 7 billion mobile and landline users across the world.”
“Together with Sify, we are making it easier for Skype users in India to purchase Skype credit and subscriptions. India is a key market for Skype and we want to help our users in India connect with friends and family abroad,” said Judd Harcombe, Head of Emerging Market Business Development at Skype.
