    Default Buying MTN airtime online

    Like the title says, anyone know where I can buy MTN prepaid airtime online with a credit card? Somewhere I don't have to go through major registration processes etc.

    Thanks.

    Can't you do it via online banking?

    On FNB I can buy airtime from online banking... don't even need a credit card.. just my debit card..

    Otherwise I'd have a look at Pick n Pay online shopping.. don't know if you can buy airtime there, but I'm guessing odds are you can.

    FNB says I'm not validated to do it for some reason, thanks anyway.

    Oh? Weird?
    Speaking of that.. their website also won't accept my "was Virgin Mobile was Vodacom now MTN" number either... it says: "Please enter a valid prepaid number" ... ?

    I don't know what they think my number is..

    I've been to a branch about 3 or 4 times to try and get it sorted out, can only view balances, can't make payments etc. Going to go once more and they better get it working...

    Well i'd also like to know of places where i can buy airtime with a CREDIT CARD [not cheque/savings] . Problems i have atm:

    1. ABSA only allow to buy airtime with a cheque/savings account [i have 2 CCs on my account, i can only pay with the cheque account]

    2. ABSA only allow me to buy MTN airtime in increments of
    R30, R60, R180 .

    --> Point 2 means i need to make 3 transactions to buy a 1GB bundle, which is crazy and i'm sure i'm paying per transaction.

    Yes you pay per transaction. Today i've loaded R210.00 airtime to buy the 350 Meg PP Bundle and i've paid R3.00 on the R180.00 as well as R3.00 transaction fee on the R30.00 at ABSA. I buy my MTN airtime from Pep Stores where i get a small discount on airtime, but they're not open on sundays.
