Vouchers provide a straightforward and cost effective solution for users to upgrade their account balance. Vouchers are common value tokens in many applications, like for instance pre-paid mobile phones. Unlike solutions that use smart cards, micro-payments or vending machines, voucher systems require no hardware investment. While manual processing is needed to generate, print, distribute and sell the voucher cards, redemption is fully end-user driven and can be processed automatically.
