What payment methods are available?

You can pay via Mastercard and Visa card to purchase Air Time on your account. 

Note: No other methods of payment are accepted,  this helps us keeps the service cost of Fresh PHONE at zero.

It would help if Freshphone would offer other forms of payment for purchasing airtime, even vouchers, something, anything! Used to use this service a lot until I stumbled into that problem of no way to purchase airtime without a credit card. Makes it all rather pointless.

Hi Moloke,

I hope you are well. As mentioned in a previous post we do not support any other payment function besides credit cards. I apologise for the inconvenience. 

Thank you.

Update: For those struggling to find a credit card to use for payment, I recently discovered the most/some banks actually offer Virtual Credit Card services where you can create a temporary electronic card to use for online purchases. Used it and worked like a charm.

Hi Viveganathen,

FreshPhone only allows for credit card payments and does not cater for any debit card payments.

Hope you find the above in order.
