Prepaid ILD (International long distance) has certainly gone through a lot of changes over the last 20 years. For the most part, the market is much more educated now than it was in the 90's where practically every sevice provider used gimmicks and hidden charges to inflate the number of minutes that they offered to given countries. That has forced today's prepaid ILD carriers to provide clean, honest services to their clients eliminating things like surcharges, service fees and 3-5 minute rounding practices. Today, prepaid ILD services are the most cost effective way to make international calls and can especially provide significant savings against calling from cell phones or roaming around the world.
There are additional benefits available in addition to cost savings including the convenience of pinless dialing, auto recharge, multiple users per account and many more. There are also different ways to purchase these services including the traditional way of buying a prepaid calling card at your local merchant, kiosks at airports or through your preferred provider's website. Payment for services can be made by cash or credit card depending on the distiributor. The prepaid ILD market allows very lucrative opportunities for agents, resellers, distributors and merchants related to the marketing and fulfillment of these cards and pinless services.
There are literally thousands of prepaid ILD providers around the world and it is important to choose the right one for your partner for this lucrative opportunity.
