W D M Q: You mentioned a ‘SPLURGE®’ Debit Master Card, can you share with our readers what that is all about? A: The ‘SPLURGE®’ card is an amazing program we just launched with our retailer /sub-distributor network; we now provide our retail / sub-distributor partners the option to earn ‘THEIR’ money (SPIFFS, Residuals & Bonuses) quicker and right onto their ‘SPLURGE®’ card. We are working with some of our MVNO partners and will soon be providing special ‘SPLURGE®’ card holder’s incentives (activation contests, Points-for- Sims program and much more!). Another card holder benef it is retailers can use their ‘SPLURGE®’ card to purchase any URGE Mobile products without any fees! Q: What about competition? It seems like everyone’s a Master Agent these days, what makes you different? A: Michelle, there is not much competition at all in what we do. In fact, the opportunity is tremendous for quality Master Agents like URGE Mobile to bring value, support and opportunity to the thousands of independent retailers and subdistributors across the country. “ From commission’s management to logistics… Our state of the art distribution facility provides a ton of support for all retailers.” The fact is, everyone thinking and being a Master Agent are two completely different things. Everyone thinks they’re a ‘Master Agent’! We joke at the off ice regarding the explosion of ‘Master Agents’ in the prepaid distribution space… Apparently many MVNO’s (and even some major carriers) decided that anyone who said they were a ‘master agent’… was. Now, we are seeing many MVNO’s & carriers realize the mistake that was made, build & support the true ‘Master Agents’ and flush out all of the basement, garage, 1-man-show operations. SIM slinging just doesn’t work. Retailers and Carriers alike deserve and need more. At URGE Mobile, we pride ourselves on building and growing relationships. From commission’s management to logistics… Our state of the art distribution facility provides a ton of support for all retailers. Retailers are tired of working with distributors that aren’t set up to properly support their business. At URGE Mobile, we in fact work with quite a few Sub-Master Agents (subdistributors) and provide them with our White Label Distribution Solution Program; we handle all their back-end logistics (dealer commission payments, shipping, returns, onboarding of retailers, etc.) and allow them to do what they do best… sell. 86
