How it works: Airtime top-up

Top up airtime on your loved ones’ phones instantly

Want to stay in touch with family and friends when you’re far away from home? Then send an airtime top-up instantly with WorldRemit, so you can stay connected.

You can add more talk-time or data allowance to their mobile phones instantly. It’s so easy, you can do it on your laptop or mobile. Airtime top-up is just one of four ways of sending with WorldRemit.

 

Here’s how it works

  • Select country you want to send to
  • Select airtime top-up (sometimes called mobile recharge) as the service you want and select the provider
  • Enter the amount you want to send

Then, you'll be directed to another page to:

  • Create an account if you don't have one (you will be asked for your address, email, phone number)
  • Enter your recipient's details  – choose from a list of people you’ve already sent to, or add a new person by entering their details: full name, phone number, address and email (optional)
  • Pay. Choose how you want to pay – bank account, debit/credit card, SOFORT, INTERAC, POLI or iDEAL (web) – then confirm the amount.

The airtime will appear instantly on your family, or friend’s phone. Plus, you and your recipient will be alerted by SMS and email when the top-up is complete.

Please remember that airtime cannot be used as money to purchase other items or pay bills.
