How to Buy Airtime Online using Tingg

Buying airtime using Tingg’s *369# USSD and app are the go-to methods for most people. However, a third option of using their website has always been available since the inception of the service.

The web version is much easier and quicker to use compared to the USSD. The only caveat is that you’ll need internet access to use it.

You can access it from either your mobile or desktop browser, however you’ll still need access to your phone as M-PESA is the only supported payment option.

The web version allows you to buy airtime for all the major networks including Safaricom, Airtel, Telkom and JTL (Faiba) with zero transactional charges from M-PESA.
