How long does a recharge take to arrive?

The recharge is normally received immediately, within seconds, once a successful purchase is made. However, on rare occasions, if the Mobile Phone operator of the prepaid number you selected to recharge is experiencing some delays with their platforms, then the recharge may take a little longer. Please note that the Mobile Operator will not always send a text message to the recipient to notify that the recharge has been made, and you may find it out by calling the Operator to check if the recharge has been successfully applied to the prepaid balance. In any case, you can always inform us after 24 hours so that we can also contact the Mobile Operator for you.

Once you make the payment you will see a proof/ticket of the transaction on your screen, and shortly after, the number to which you made the recharge to should receive a notification that the recharge has been applied to its prepaid balance.

What to do if a recharge/top-up does not arrive?

Wait a few minutes as the Mobile Operator processing the transaction may have a congestion at this time. If the recharge still has not been received after 10minutes, you may contact the Mobile Phone Operator customer care mentioned on the transaction ticket.

You can also go to the Contact option and then please fill in the requested information. Briefly write down your query or issue encountered. Do not forget to mention the phone number which you recharged/topped-up, as this will speed up the resolution of the issue. Our customer care team will then contact you as soon as possible.
