“Alexa, ask My3 to top me up”
Thursday, 17th September: Three Ireland has announced a partnership with Mi-Pay and Amazon’s Alexa to offer Three customers an exciting new top-up experience, the world’s first voice-assisted top-up service. This innovative new top-up method is quick, secure and easy, allowing customers to top up any Prepay account from home by simply saying “Alexa, ask My3 to top me up”.
Three customers, already registered with their debit or credit card for top-up on My3, can now setup/enable this new service via their Amazon account through the Alexa Skills marketplace. Once the customer’s My3 account is verified as part of the setup, Alexa will be able to top up their My3 prepay mobile number when prompted.
Three Prepay customers can then top up their phone in easy steps:
- “Alexa, ask My3 to top me up”.
- When prompted, confirm the amount to top up “Top me up €20”.
- Select “default card” or for example “card ending 1234” when asked by Alexa to confirm the card to use.
- Alexa will provide an overview of the top up and ask for confirmation to proceed before then confirming that top-up was successful.
To get a full step-by-step guide of the service, Three has created a helpful video:
