Options to top up using the app
So now lets focus on the top up tab as this is what you’re looking for. I will go through each option and how it works.
Top up this number by card
By choosing this you can enter your top up amount along with entering your payment method. By entering top up now your request should go through. Make sure you are either connected to wifi or have enough data to be able to do this successfully.
Auto top up
If you don’t want to need to remember to top up you can choose to top up on a regular basis. This can be weekly, monthly or every 30 days. You can then choose the amount you’d like to top up and enter your payment information. As long as your card details don’t change your SIM will be topped up the frequency you have chosen. This can be cancelled or changed at any time.
Manage payment cards
The cards which you use to pay for your top up can be saved to your account so there’s no need to remember them. Here you can add, change or delete the cards associated with your account.
Instead of using a card you may choose to buy a top up voucher in a place such as the post office which can be paid by using cash. Once you have your voucher here you can activate it by entering your mobile number and the voucher code which should show on your receipt.
Top up with PayPal
If you haven’t heard of PayPal before it is a service which is much like a digital wallet. You will create a log in to PayPal and on there you can enter and save your credit/debit cards. When you want to make a purchase online you can log in to PayPal and you cards will be there without having to remember your card details. Here you can top up by entering the number you want to top up along with how much and then you can pay by logging into PayPal and choosing the card you want to pay with.
Top up any number
Here you can top up any Vodafone mobile number you enter. Along with that you can choose the value of the top up and then enter your card and associated address details below before submitting.
Vodafone top up online
On the Vodafone website you can use the top up portal to top up your mobile online.
At the top of the page you can choose to top up by either using a card or PayPal. Select which option you’d prefer.
If you choose to pay by card you will be asked to fill in the details of the number you’d like to top up along with the value. The value can be a minimum of £5 and maximum of £50. You will then need to fill in the card details you want to pay with along with the address of the card.
If you choose to pay via PayPal you will need to fill in the details of the mobile number you wish to top up. Along with that you can choose the amount of a minimum of £10 and maximum of £50. This is before selecting checkout and logging in to PayPal to complete the payment process.
Using a voucher- If you have a voucher from a shop such as the post office you can enter the details online too. On Vodafones website you can enter the mobile number you’d like to top up along with the voucher number.
By calling Vodafone
You can top up your Vodafone Pay As You Go SIM by calling 2345 for free. This is an automated system which will ask you different questions you can answer using your key pad. Make sure to have a card you’d like to pay with at hand.
By texting Vodafone
If you’d like to top up by text you can. Text TOPUP to 2345 along with the amount you’d like to top up and the last four digits of your payment card. For example text TOPUP 10 1234 to top up by £10 using a card ending in 1234.
You can only top up by text if you have at least once topped up over the phone using the same card.
Top up Vodafone automatically
If you’d like to set up to top up automatically and can’t set this up over the app you can also do it over the phone. Simply call 18829 from the mobile you’d like to set this up on for free. Here you can set up your initial payment.
