Transactions can fail for different reasons. Here are a few things you should check before trying to top up through our website:
- Make sure you have signed up for MasterCard SecureCode if you use a Mastercard, or Verified by Visa if you use a Visa card.
- Make sure the address you enter is correct and matches the information your bank holds on you.
- Make sure you enter the CVN number on the back of your card correctly.
- Please also note that your transaction might fail if you are trying to top up from abroad.
If you have checked all of the above and you are still having problems, please contact Customer Service and we’ll happy to assist you.
What is 'Verified by Visa' and 'Mastercard SecureCode'?
Because we take security seriously at Vectone, Mobile we use the official Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode secure payment schemes to process your card payment, adding an extra level of protection for online card payments.
During the payment process, your details will be securely forwarded to your bank's website for verification. The code you use will be known only to yourself and your bank – just like when you tap your PIN into the card reader in a shop. Once your bank has authenticated the transaction, you'll be redirected to Vectone Mobile's website to finish your purchase.
How do I sign up to 'Verified by Visa' and 'Mastercard SecureCode'?
If you have not yet registered your card for 3D Secure Payments you will be asked to do so during the authentication process. You'll just need to confirm a few security details with your own bank and set a password or PIN for future use. Once you've done this, you can use this extra level of security on any website that uses Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode to secure your card transactions. Don't forget to keep your password and PIN safe at all times, making sure you only disclose it on official authentication websites of your bank.

How many days will it take to transfer my existing mobile number to my new Vectone SIM?
