RSL COM Primecall, Inc., a subsidiary of RSL Communications, Ltd., , now sells prepaid phone cards over the Internet at [www.callrsl.com]
Customers may purchase, from their computer screen, prepaid cards in denominations of $20, $50, or $100 and select the calling card plan that meets their specific needs. After filling out an electronic form that debits either their checking account or credit card, the customer receives the calling card number via e-mail within 24 hours. The new web site home page also features a monthly contest for a free $100 prepaid calling card.
Arnie Goodstein, President of RSL COM Primecall, said, “Through the ‘callrsl.com’ web site, we are able to sell one of America’s most popular line of prepaid calling cards directly to consumers. The web site also attracts agents and dealers as a result of which we expect will generate much larger sales volumes. Visits to the site have increased significantly since the launch of the new site at the beginning of last month.”
Mr. Goodstein added, “Our customers asked that we automate the process of buying RSL COM prepaid cards. We responded to our customers and also found a way to provide high quality service at the same time.”
One example of the focused cards offered on the website is the Latinos Card. This card allows calls from the United States to any country, although the cost structure is tailored for Central America, South America, and Mexico. It has rates of 39 cents a minute to Brazil, 47 cents a minute to Argentina, 59 cents a minute to French Guinea, 15 to 26 cents a minute to Mexico and only 8 cents a minute to Puerto Rico.
