You may select one of several payment methods, the list of which may vary with countries; they usually include credit cards and one or several mobile money methods.

Prices are always displayed at least in the currency of the recharge, and in the currencies that will be proposed for payment when they differ.

The payment currency and the payment methods that are available for your purchase can be selected at the checkout, where the price is displayed both in the recharge and the payment currencies.

If the phone number you indicated cannot receive a recharge (for example because it is not a valid number) and your payment has been accepted, you may ask for the credit to be transferred to another number (same recharge amount, or recharge of at most same price as the price you paid). In any case, after 2 working days, if we were not able to deliver the credit, you will be informed by email and we will propose you to recharge another number.

If you have already paid and the phone number you entered has been reloaded, we will not be able to reimburse you. So please make sure to double check the phone number before completing your transaction.
