RecargaPay is a mobile payment platform[1] company based in São Paulo, Brazil. Its website was launched on November 1, 2010.[4]

Accessible by desktop, laptop and tablet computers, as well as smartphones, RecargaPay allows its users to pay digital services such as prepaid mobile top-ups, bill payments, gift cards, public transport cards and peer to peer payments without needing a bank account.[5][6]

History

RecargaPay was incubated by Fnbox in November 1, 2010. Fnbox was a holding company that managed various online properties, such as Sonico.com (sold to Match.com in 2014), Tarjetastelefonicas.com, Cuponica.com (sold to Clickon in 2015) and Recarga.com (now RecargaPay).[7]

RecargaPay was created to provide prepaid mobile recharge services through a website and, shortly after launched, also through mobile apps (Android and iPhone). In 2013 Fnbox started an unbundling process in order to focus exclusively on the prepaid mobile top-ups business. Within this process, Recarga.com was rebranded to RecargaPay in order to diversify its product offerings. According to its CEO, Rodrigo Teijeiro, RecargaPay is "much more than just top-ups". [7]

In February 22, 2018, RecargaPay raised $22M in Series B funding.[2][8]
