In a hurry to recharge because it’s a busy working day? With the right recharge app, your phone recharge is done in just a couple of minutes.
From the time that sceptics felt that the Internet was ‘too advanced’ or ‘too expensive’ for India, we have sure come a long way! The country is going great guns with the advancement of Internet technology, and is adopting various digital payment methods in daily banking, shopping, and other tasks.
Combined with a widespread use of mobile phones, the e-payment ecosystem in India is set to become a major behemoth in the payments segment of the country. Not only are people relying on e-payment gateways for digital transactions, but they are increasingly using their smartphones to make the payments. From phone to DTH recharge, and from bill payment to ticket booking, people are using secure online methods to pay.
This has given rise to a multitude of recharge apps, which have varying degrees of ease of use. Some of the best online mobile recharge apps like myAirtel app facilitate bill payments and phone recharges of not just Airtel numbers, but also non-Airtel ones. Or there are dedicated recharge apps and payment platforms designed only for online transactions.
Recharge your phone in just a couple of minutes!
Consider the ways in which you can recharge your prepaid phone using an online mobile recharge app, or e-commerce sites, or the provider’s website:
1 Using the myAirtel app.The myAirtel recharge app is a godsend for those in a hurry. Simply input your 10-digit prepaid phone number, Airtel or otherwise, and proceed with the recharge as directed on the app. The app is free to install on your phone. Airtel users can also maintain a balance of money in the Airtel Payments Bank and get 4% savings deposit interest on the residual funds. Or you can use your cards, net banking, BHIM app etc. to recharge. The process is quick and you receive the acknowledgement at once.
2 Using UPI-based BHIM app:You can even use third party payment recharge apps for the process, but we suggest going with the ultra-secure UPI-based BHIM app. The BHIM app offers two-step authentication and the highest levels of online security whenever you recharge or pay bills. Besides, your provider may even have a tie-up with the app to give cashback with every recharge.
3 Using e-commerce websites: E-commerce giants like Amazon now offer a payment platform for paying utility bills, phone recharges, postpaid bill payments, etc. Your card details will already be stored on the site’s smartphone app if you are a regular customer. You can use the recharge mode offered by the app and also get cashback on every first transaction of the month under phone recharge.
