2. How do I make international top-ups?


There’s nothing to it! Just follow these steps and continue calling in no-time.

  1. Choose the country: where is the phone you want to refill?
  2. Enter the phone number: depending on the country you choose, enter the phone number you want to refill. After a successful payment, the ordered credit will appear on the phone immediately. Not getting the option to enter a phone number? In that case we'll send you a refill code by email.

  4. Confirm & pay: if you order with us, you'll receive your credit immediately (either on your phone or by email). This means we need some more information of you, but only to ensure a smooth completion of the payment and online delivery of your order. We will protect your personal information!

3. How do I refill call credit with a refill code?


After the payment has been successful, you’ll receive the refill code in your order confirmation email. The refill instructions can be found on our website by visiting the correct provider page. That's all you need to refill the call credit on the mobile phone.

4. Why is my refill code not working?


In combination with the right carrier, the refill code should always work. The codes are unique and only issued once. When you're still running into problems, we advise you to take a look at the refill instructions. These can be found here on the website by going to the correct provider page. Still no luck? Please contact your carrier.

5. I can’t refill call credit? What’s going on?


We don’t want to see that happening! Breathe and start by checking if you’ve entered the correct phone number (if you were asked to enter one) and if this information is still recent. Still no success? Maybe Recharge.com doesn’t support the carrier you chose. Has the credit been sent directly to your phone after you've paid, but the refill failed? We’ll make sure the amount of your order will be refunded.

Please note that it isn’t possible to refund codes which are sent via email. Unfortunately, we can’t take back these codes because we can’t verify if the code has already been used.

6. How long does it take before the call credit is refilled?

There are two ways to refill your credit, but in both cases you'll receive the credit on the phone within 1 minute.

Did you have to enter a phone number?
The particular phone will be refilled directly. Even if you make use of another network, for example when you’re roaming.

Did you only have to fill in an email address?
You'll receive a refill code by mail. This code will be sent to the email address you've entered right away and you can use it to refill your credit.

Please note that in both cases the processing of the purchase can sometimes take several minutes.

7. Is it possible to return the refill code?


Unfortunately, it isn’t possible to return or exchange a refill code. That’s because the codes are unique and issued once. It’s not possible for us to verify if the refill code has been or will be used. Therefore, we can’t take back a refill code and resell it. But, you can always try to exchange your code with somebody else or resell it yourself.

11. Why is a service fee charged?


We want to give you the best service we possibly can, including fast delivery and safe payments. In order to do this, we have to charge a service fee. To avoid any surprises, we make sure all these costs are indicated beforehand.

12. What should I do if a promotional bonus of a carrier has not been processed?


The best thing to do is contact the carrier you’re expecting the promotional bonus from. Why? Because the carrier is responsible for processing promotions to customers.
