Smart Meter Payments

Pre-authorized Smart Meter Payments allows customers to securely store their card details through tokenization against their property, protected by the highest level of PCI compliance, allowing you to offer a number of Smart Meter payment options to your customers.

1) Top-Up Account from Smart Meter

Utilizing the Smart Meter’s GSM functionality, customers can simply top-up their account from the Meter using their saved payment details, with their new account balance displayed clearly on screen. For more ease of use, customers can be presented with a fixed amount to pay (E.g. £5, £10, £15, £20) and enable automatic top-up.

2) Top-Up Account via SMS

Low balance on the Smart Meter can trigger an SMS to the customer, notifying them of the top-up options available – instantly top-up the account via SMS reply using a previous tokenized payment method or enter new card details via a dedicated mobile-friendly web page. Auto top-up options are also available when a Meter balance hits a minimum amount.
