Recharge now

Here are some other ways you can use your credit/debit card to recharge:

My Vodafone

You can log into your account and recharge at or through the My Vodafone app (iOS and Android).


Before you start

  • To recharge over the phone, you’ll need to have registered your credit/debit card. You can do this during the call or you can do it beforehand using My Vodafone
  • You’re unable to select MyMix recharges over the phone. If you’re after this option you can recharge online
  • If you’re on a Combo or MyMix recharge, you won’t be able to add My Credit over the phone. You can do this online or via TXT

Step 1

Call 1511 from your Vodafone mobile.

Note: You can also recharge by calling 1300 650 410 from another phone but you’ll need to enter your mobile number and 4 digit account enquiry PIN.

Step 2

Press '2' to use your registered credit card.

Step 3

Follow the rest of the prompts to complete your recharge.


If you’ve registered a credit/debit card to your account, you can also recharge by sending a TXT with the keyword for the recharge you’re after to 1511.

Check out our support page for the keywords to use.


Questions and answers

What cards can I use to recharge?

Our credit card recharge system accepts Australian and internationally issued VISA, MasterCard and American Express credit and debit cards.

Is there a preauthorisation charge when using a card?

When you recharge with an unregistered credit card, we’ll apply a $1 preauthorisation charge which is then reversed within 7 days. This is used to verify your card.
