VOXI to sell mobile phones for the first time with new PayPal Offer

VOXI to sell mobile phones for the first time with new PayPal Offer
  • VOXI, the youth mobile brand from Vodafone, to offer smartphones for the first time – including the new iPhone XS, XS Max and XR
  • New collaboration with PayPal with £0 up front on all phones and 0% interest1
  • New flexible payment options without being tied into a lengthy mobile contract allow young people to have full control over their terms
  • VOXI’s much loved Endless Social Media remains

VOXI by Vodafone, the UK’s first mobile offering dedicated to customers aged 29 and under, has announced a unique new collaboration with PayPal that will give customers a more flexible and affordable way to purchase a smartphone with no upfront cost and 0% interest.

VOXI will give customers who want unlimited data for social media and the latest smartphones, the freedom to buy a phone without being tied into a lengthy mobile contract. Offering low monthly instalments over 30 months for its range of smartphones via PayPal Credit1, VOXI customers will have full control over their payment terms with flexibility to make additional payments to reduce the length of term, or pay off what’s left to get the newest upgrade. The new proposition will be available from October through http://www.voxi.co.uk.

Crucially, the VOXI offer of Endless Social Media and no contract on all mobile plans will not change, allowing customers to purchase a phone without being tied into a mobile plan. They can pause, cancel or change their VOXI plan at any time and continue their flexible phone instalments with PayPal Credit1.

Dan Lambrou, Head of VOXI, said: “We believe that young people should be able to access the latest technology and best deals as easily as everyone else. Flexibility is key to them as they move through different life stages; whether that’s college to University, starting work or taking a gap year. They’ve told us they can’t be tied down and data allowance is most important when choosing a mobile plan, and that is why VOXI and PayPal have come up with a solution to provide the freedom and flexibility that they need combined with Endless Social Media.”

Customers can purchase a range of affordable smartphones from Apple, Samsung, Huawei and Sony starting from £17 per month including a £10 VOXI plan. The new iPhone XS will be available from £49 per month including a £10 VOXI plan which includes Endless Social Media, 6GB of data, unlimited minutes and unlimited texts.

Additionally, through its partnership with PayPal VOXI will be adding PayPal wallet as a new payment method for its mobile plans, providing more choice and control for our customers.

VOXI plans let you use selected social apps2 and websites as much as you like, without eating into your general data allowance. This includes Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and WhatsApp. Customers also have unlimited calls and texts along with free roaming in 48 European destinations3 at no extra cost. VOXI SIM only plans work on a flexible monthly subscription with no contract; you’re free to change, pause or cancel your plan whenever you like.

Notes to Editors:

1 PayPal Credit is like a credit card you can use for your online purchases and spread the cost of your purchase. Purchases made on voxi.co.uk qualify for 0% interest and have a term of 30 months.

When you apply for PayPal Credit, you get a credit line to pay for today’s purchase and future purchases up to your credit limit. PayPal Credit is subject to status, terms and conditions apply.

Representative example: representative 17.9% APR (variable), purchase interest rate 17.9% p.a. (variable), assumed credit limit £1,200.00.

2 These apps are Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Instagram, WhatsApp, Pinterest, Snapchat, Twitter and Viber. Selected apps may change from time to time. Anyone can apply to have their app, service or product partner with VOXI via our partner portal.

VOXI may intervene in extreme situations if your usage adversely impacts the service for other customers, or if you are using the service fraudulently, or for commercial purposes. The cost of providing unlimited use of the social media and chat apps above is included in all VOXI plans; users are free to opt-in or opt-out of their plan at any time.

We’ll alert you when you’ve used 80% and 100% of your data plan. If you run out of data, unlimited access to the social media and chat apps above will pause until you’ve bought more.

3 VOXI users enjoy unlimited data on the social and chat apps above while roaming in our Roam-free Destinations. Outside the Roam-free destinations, standard roaming charges apply.
