What is airtime?

Airtime is simply another term used to describe the talk-time or mobile credit you need to send texts, make calls and use data on a prepaid mobile phone. Two-thirds of the world’s 4.5 billion mobile phones are prepaid phones, which means users need airtime to use them. Most of that airtime is bought through scratch cards or electronic pin numbers, but our service allows you to transfer airtime to a phone in Nigeria using a computer, tablet or smartphone.

What is Etisalat?

Etisalat is a mobile phone network based in the UAE that provides telecommunications around the world and is one of the most widely used networks in Nigeria. The network known as Etisalat Nigeria has recently had a name change and is now called 9Mobile, but our ability to transfer airtime to this network quickly, safely and securely remains the same.

How can I transfer airtime on Etisalat?

Transferring airtime to an Etisalat phone in Nigeria is extremely simple. Just select the country the mobile phone user is in using the box on the right-hand side of this screen. Then select the service, which in this case will be ‘Airtime’. You will then be asked to enter the number of the mobile phone. Once that process is complete you can choose the amount of airtime you want to send.

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 Etisalat network. Both you and the recipient will receive an SMS notification once the transfer has been made.
