What can I do if I accidentally recharged the wrong number?

Well, in this case we would not be held accountable, that is why we took pains to develop the system in such a way that, you have to verify your meter number in the case of electric bills or TV subscriptions to be sure that you are sending value to the correct number. Please always ensure that you enter the right number before you proceed for payment since we would be able to retrive service that has been paid for alrealy. In some cases, the payment would not go through at our end even your money was deducted, when you complian to us, your money would be reversed  immediatly after due verifications.

I haven't received an order confirmation, did my transaction get through?

Provided that you've entered a correct email address, you should always receive an order confirmation after a successful payment. There is a possibility that the recharge cannot immediately be processed. This could happen, for example, if you fill in a wrong/invalid phone number, when there is a malfunction at the carrier or when the payment has not succeeded. We always keep you informed on the progress of your order on the email address you provided us with. Make sure to always check the spam folder of your email account. To prevent the order confirmation from ending up in the spam folder, please add [email protected] to your safe senders list.

If a payment fails, we'll refund the amount of the order. It depends on several factors how long it takes before the money is back on your bank account. In the meantime, be sure to regularly check the status of your payment with your bank. In many cases you'll have the money back within a few working days. Does it take more than a week to get the refund? Please contact us. We'll make sure you get what you're entitled to.
