Steps on how to start running the business
- Get a connected computer

You don’t need to be a computer literate before you start your own recharge card business, you can start with as little as #90,000. You can be using a trusted cyber café or business center pending the time you will be able to purchase your own personal computer. Recharge card printing business can be making you more than #200,000 monthly. It all depends on how hard working you are.
You may be wondering how you will make sales with this business, you can be selling you printed cards to
1. Recharge card vendors
2. GSM phoning booth
If you are busy person, you can get a sales rep that will be going around with the recharge card selling it.
You are now having the information that will be assisting you in making at least #200,000 monthly. Most people are having the right information to making money, but the problem they have is that they will never take action. I know after reading this guide some people will take action and some won’t. The choice is yours.
If you are having any question, use the comment box and if you have more trusted dealers you want us to add to the dealers list, send an email to email@example.com. Hope this info helps a little.

Thank u for the information that u gave us, my quest is that some of the article writer use to tell us that we can start with minimum of 10000-15k is that treu. Thank u
@ David, you can start N10-15k as a retailer not as a Dealer or sub-dealer.
Plz i want 2 knw weda i can start the business with N10,000 bcos i av a computer, printer and d internet connection
@David, That’s too small to start recharge card printing business.
Is prepaid stil function
@femi, I don’t think so.
please am really interested of joining recharge card printing business of my own, besides, knowing how much it could cost and its requirements. i have laptop of my own that can aid me to start up the business.
@joseph benjamin effiong, with N100,000, you are good to go.
is there other dealers that sells cheaper pin as less as #87 per #100 pin becos i’ll sell to the wholesalers in my area not retailers and i have 300,000 as my start-up capital
I don’t think telecommunication companies sell as cheap as that.
How can I get a brand new laptop for a lesser price of 14k to 15k and am really interested in the recharge card printing business and is 30k enough for a start?
Boss, this a great information and it shows the uniqueness of your blog. Thanks!

@mandela, N10,000 is too small to buy pins but you can still use it to start small by buying at bulk from sub-dealers.
