Fast, easy, economical…online recharge on your prepaid connection is the most convenient option you could exercise.

Using a phone for all that you need – what could be easier? You have been a prepaid phone user for long, and it helps that you have an excellent Airtel prepaid recharge plan to back your phone. The Internet speeds are excellent, you never suffer call drops and the overall functionality of the connection never makes you want to switch to a postpaid connection.

However, you are not entirely comfortable with the prepaid recharge that you must do. But there couldn’t be anything simpler than Airtel prepaid recharge, especially with the online medium. It’s quick, easy and fully secure to do the recharge online, whether for the phone connection or your home DTH.

Here’s how the process works for your Airtel prepaid recharge…

* Using a smartphone app: Every mobile service provider today has a smartphone app designed exclusively for prepaid and postpaid phone payments. But most of them cater only to their own users. Then there are multi-utility smartphone payment apps like myAirtel, which offers various functionalities at once. Do the Airtel prepaid recharge, postpaid and broadband bill payment and also utility bill payments using this app. Apart from Airtel prepaid recharge and DTH recharge, you can also do non-Airtel numbers’ payments as well! Besides, you get cash back and discounts on every Airtel prepaid recharge using the app, apart from the chance to transfer money from the excellent Airtel Payments Bank.

* Using a UPI-enabled app:UPI apps are excellent interfaces for payment. After installing the app (from the Google Play Store or iTunes) for free, you can proceed to set it using a unique M-pin and UPI ID (similar to an email ID for your bank account) for your phone. Once the basic set up is done, you can start transferring payments, paying bills, completing the phone recharge, availing offers on restaurants and retail, etc. You can do the Airtel prepaid recharge using the BHIM app (also offered as a payment option on the myAirtel app) and get cashback and discounts for doing so.

* Using the provider’s website: If you would rather use the service provider’s website – whether on your laptop/tab or smartphone – you can do the online prepaid recharge quite easily. Simply log on to the website, look for the words ‘Recharges’ and proceed as directed. You must input the 10-digit phone number and the amount of recharge you wish to do. Once you pay, the recharge is complete and you can proceed to use the phone as you always do – till the next recharge!
