Airtime is one of the largest categories of cellular purchases and continues to grow rapidly with the increase in customers who have access to cell phones. MTN has recognised this, and to address the need for convenient and reliable channels to purchase airtime, has launched MTN Eazi Recharge, a new and innovative service for the simple and convenient purchase of MTN Pay As You Go airtime.
MTN Eazi Recharge enables a customer who has registered for the service to use their cell phone to securely and directly purchase airtime from MTN using a VISA or MasterCard accredited bank credit card. Customers will need to register once by linking their VISA or MasterCard credit card for the MTN Eazi Recharge service directly, via their cell phone – customers do not need to go into their bank to register. Funds will be directly debited from the customer’s credit card account to purchase MTN Pay As You Go airtime which will then be deposited directly into either the customer’s own cell phone account, or into a nominated beneficiary’s cell phone account. While this service is offered to MTN customers free of charge, normal transactional bank charges as determined by the respective banks may still apply.
With MTN Eazi Recharge, MTN Pay As You Go and Top Up customers can now purchase MTN Pay As You Go airtime for themselves or for anyone else from MTN directly from their credit card accounts, Anywhere and Anytime. In addition, MTN contract customers can also use this service to buy airtime for anyone else on MTN Pay As You Go or TopUp.
The MTN Eazi Recharge service is easy, convenient and safe to use – once registered, customers can transact only by using a secure payPIN plus the last 3 numbers on the back of their credit cards when buying airtime. As an additional security measure, a daily limit of R300 will apply on all MTN Eazi Recharge transactions.
