How Does It Work
Alfamart E-Pin Redemption
Redtone user can send Alfamart gift voucher via RingIndo. The Recipient in Indonesia will receive an electronic pin (e-pin) via SMS, redemmable at any of the 10,000 store outlets in Indonesia. Receipinet can pay for the purchases with e-pin to Alfamart Cashier. If the purchase value exceeds that of the e-pin purchased or gifted, the beneficiary simply tops up the payment on the spot with cash.
With pre-paid electricity, every customer can control their own electricity usage comfortably. Similar to a phone reload system, in this case a 20-digit token number in generated on purchase. The purchase is done in real-time, and the beneficiary receives a PLN token via SMS in return. A prepaid top up token can be purchased or gifted in the following denominations of Rp20,000, Rp50,000, or Rp100,000.
The beneficiary then inserts the unique pin into a specially made kWh Meter for a prepaid electricity top-up. Through this meter, the beneficiary can also access account history information related to:
the amount of electrical energy (kWh) that is being is entered,
the remaining amount of electrical energy,
the amount of electrical energy that is being used at this time (real-time), and
the amount of electrical energy (kWh) which has already been used.
The meter signals the user when prepaid energy levels are low.
The Big Picture

Purchasing & Gifting PLN Prepaid Electricity Top-up with Phone Credit
Disruption of electrical service is common in Indonesia, particularly when it rains as the tropical storms can cause broken connections, broken cables or debris falling onto the power lines. In addition, the non-payment of electric bills by individuals, factories, and even city governments is common. PLN had had to find innovative ways to ensure that customers have access to a myriad of methods to not only top-up the prepaid payment system in place, but to also feel like they have control over their electricity consumption. The offer of prepaid top up through a single SMS in real-time has eased the lives of many. If a customer’s prepaid credit becomes exhausted, the electricity is automatically cut off, making this solution a crucial gifting opportunity. This collaboration with REDtone and Tranglo has made the convenience of assisting friends and loved ones across borders through a simple SMS.
