Send a mobile airtime top-up to Nigeria

The fast, simple way to send an airtime top-up

Use on a computer, smartphone or tablet. Our airtime top-up service allows you to send mobile credit to prepaid mobile phones at any time, from anywhere in the world to Nigeria.

When you connect a mobile phone to a network, you have to purchase credit that allows you to send texts, use data and make voice calls. Without airtime, also known as mobile credit or talk-time, the mobile phone cannot be used to make calls or send texts. Once it has been bought, this airtime can only be used on the recipient’s mobile phone and cannot be transferred into cash.

How do you send airtime to another phone in Nigeria?

The process itself is incredibly simple. Just select the country the mobile phone you want to top-up is in using the box on the right-hand side of this screen. Then select the service, either ‘Bank Deposit’ or ‘Airtime’. You will then be asked to enter the number of the mobile phone you want to top-up, the amount and the mobile network. The top-up can be sent to a wide range of networks, including Airtel, Etisalat, GLO, MTN, Visafone.

The airtime top-up will usually be added to the recipient’s phone immediately, although occasionally there may be small delays due to congestion on the local network.
