Buy airtime with a credit card online from Vodacom, MTN, Cell C and Telkom via a pc or mobile phone handset and you can be recharged with talk time in minutes. The conventional method of buying vouchers from your local shop or garage at a machine or over the counter is not the only way of being able to re-charge your cell-phone’s credit. You can purchase on the Internet via a home or office computer or even from the phone you are using. In fact you can even use a friends handset as long as they have access to the Internet.
Use a VISA, MasterCard or any major plastic to buy airtime with a credit card and once purchased you will be issued with a PIN number the same as if you purchase a voucher from the shop. This PIN is obviously used to recharge your cell phone with the amount of new talk time you have purchased from a pc or mobile handset. Make sure the payment gateway that the facility you choose to use is a secure webpage. You can tell this by having a look at the address in the address bar of your browser. Normal web pages begin with http:// but a secure page will have an extra “s” and read as https:// before the “www”.
Making sure that you are on a secure page when using an online facility will give you peace of mind that the transaction about to be processed is a secure one. One of South Africa’s most popular payment gateways that online shopping facilities and large direct mail Internet companies such as this use is PayGate. Whether you are with the service provider Vodacom, Cell C, MTN or need to get top up talk time for your Telkom phone, you can buy airtime with a credit card online at many facilities 24 hours a day.
