DTH Customer Info will give the customer information for the queried DTH number. The API will give the information like the customer name, the customer plan, plan amount, customer balance and so on. Using this, the bill payment provider can verify the customer details before processing the request. This eliminates the issue of sending a recharge to a wrong number. Also, the API returns the information about the customer plan details, to identify which is the currently subscribed plan. The bill payment provider can then make the recharge for the respective plans.
Earlier, the providers have to double verify the customer details, and if the plan amount or the customer subscriber ID was wrong, a recharge could have sent to a wrong provider. This API removes the issue by displaying the customer details before processing for a recharge. We cover all the major providers in the market for this API. The API supports a REST API call where the information like apikey, customer id and the provider code is passed.
Note: The API only currently supports by customer id or the subscriber number and not by customers mobile number.
DTH Customer info API can be used along with the DTH recharge plans API and the DTH Operator Lookup API. The detailed documentation is available at the below link.
Note: You might need a demo API credential to test with the API. The API can be imported and tested in the developer API testing tool called postman. The “Run in Postman” button will import the entire collection and can be tested. The code section in the right will give the ready to use code snippets in various formats. The list of supported providers is available in the above documentation section.
