  • Dear Juan Yeps,
    We're Masary company. We're mobile international airtime hub. We provide companies with mobile airtime of Egyptian mobile operators; Etisalat, Vodafone and Mobinil.
    We're now working and integrating with topup websites like yours in many regions to avail this VAS to their subscribers and we've already launched the international airtime service with the MVNO (Arabia Mobile Services) in Italy.
    We've seen that your website (Union Telecard) doesn't have any of the Egyptian mobile operators. There are big Egyptian communities living abroad who would be good potential for your services.

    We're looking forward to working with you to provide you the ability to recharge any mobile in Egypt and many operators all over the world soon.
    Please, forward the email to the concerned department.
    Awaiting for your feedback.
