For example, T- Shop is available with the following operators:
- 200 million migrants worldwide send $400 billion in cash back home every year.
- High remittance fees make it difficult for migrants to send small cash gifts home.
- 2 out of 3 of the world's mobile phones are prepaid (85% in developing countries).
- In developing countries, telecommunications represent up to 10% of household expenses.
Crediting a prepaid mobile phone abroad (i.e. making an international top-up) has become a proven way for migrants to make low cost, high value gift to their loved ones.

Single store operations
T-Shop can be used by small, single shop operations catering to migrants such as telecommunications resellers or ethnic food shops.
T-Shop can be customized by master resellers wishing to manage and expand an internaional top-up sales network. Master resellers can:
- Build their own distribution chain of sub-retailers.
- Manage the account balance of each sub-retailer.
- Set sub-retailer commissions.
The T-Shop airtime transfer service is distributed through retailers at POS (Point of Sales) level via a web browser.
First, customers choose the amount they want to top-up. The shop keeper or clerk behind the counter then proceeds with the international top-up by entering their request into the browser form.
The shopkeeper collects cash only when he/she has received notification that the transaction was successful and that the receiving mobile was properly credited.
There's no setup fees, and no recurrent fees. As a reseller of international airtime top-ups, you pay only for what your customers transfers. There's no minimum revenue and no minimum contract duration.
Price quoted by TransferTo are valid for 30 days, which means that you are not impacted by exchange rate variations.
