we reported that online prepaid airtime dealer Prepay Refill was shutting down. Gregory Pratt, Prepay Refill's owner, said he was forced out of business by a drastic cut in commissions paid to dealers by TracFone's PagePlus brand.
A new owner is bringing Prepay Refill back to life. The site is back in business selling airtime for PagePlus, H2O and Verizon. Prepay Refill's new manager, Dina Azimova, says They plan to offer airtime for other providers as well. Dina was known as one of the best people in the business of "flashing" Sprint and other non-Verizon phones to PagePlus back when that was still possible and currently runs the e-commerce department of online phone sales site Mega Saver. Prepay Refill is currently offering a 3% discount on all airtime.
There was a bit of a kerfuffle with the ownership change. In announcing the shutdown of Prepay Refill, Greg said that he was going to purge all customer data. That apparently didn't happen and Dina ended up with sufficient information to be able to resume making auto payments for any customers who wanted her too.
In response to the criticism, Dina has purged the customer data she received as Gregg Pratt originally said he would. If you had an auto pay set up with the old Prepay Refill, you will need to set it up again.
It's getting harder and harder to find reliable sources of discounted prepaid airtime. I wish the new Prepay Refill ownership success in this difficult, low margin business.
