Topupmeters are a company specialising in remote prepayment smart meters for quick and easy meter top-ups using a credit or debit card from anywhere in the world.
The topupmeters service is designed for landlords and property managers who require their tenants or licencees to pay for their energy consumption on a prepayment basis. For example a holiday home site that has several homes with their own electricity and gas supply. Or an apartment block with multiple dwellings where each of the tenants pays for their own electricity and gas usage.
Start by visiting our secure website at www.topupmeters.co.uk. Simply follow the instructions to enter the meter serial number and PIN, then select the amount and enter your card details to make payment. After payment is accepted the top-up amount is instantly sent to the meter. The payment then goes to the owner’s account for paying their energy supplier.
All topupmeters have a GPRS module with a network resilient SIM card that will scan for the strongest available network operator. This provides a reliable link to the meter for sending credit topups.
In the event that the meter is unable to receive a topup due to poor signal quality it is possible to manually enter the 20 digit UTRN code using the 2 buttons on the front of the meter.
If you need to go back a digit then hold down Cycle Display for 5 seconds until the previous number flashes and continue.
The topupmeters service uses Stripe to handle card payments. All owners will need to setup a merchant account with Stripe before payments can be received
from customer top-ups. The merchant setup process only takes a couple days for activation.
