The final image on your proposal, of a PayPoint sign, reminded me of yet
another complication (at
least in the UK). Along with the yellow-and-black PayPoint logo is a
green-and-white Top-Up logo.
I have so far been unable to find much detail on the Top-Up logo, but
here's what I have found.
1. The Top-Up logo indicates a place which sells top-ups for mobile phones
and nothing further may
be inferred. Yes, if it's a PayPoint system you can top up your
electricity key and pay your gas bill as well
as top up youir mobile phone, but the Top-Up logo only guarantees you can
top up your mobile there.
2) It appears that Top-Up may be some sort of agreement between several
payment processors. I
have not found anything indicating who may display the logo but I know that
both PayPoint and
Payzone networks use it, as does the Tesco supermarket chain. Whether it's
a formal consortium
or not is something I have not been able to determine. The UK's 4 major
Mobile Network Operators
and many of the virtual MNOs simply say that you can top up their phones
where you see the Top-Up
logo. See, for example,
So prepaid_top_up:network=top-up. Ugh! And it's probably not a network as
such but an agreement
amongst payment processors and MNOs.
