  • Access to increased daily and monthly recharge limits
  • You can set up an auto recharge to take the hassle out of remembering
  • You can use the card to recharge over the phone by calling 1511


Got other prepaid services?

After registering a credit card, you can also allow other prepaid services to recharge from the same card. Check out our support page for more info.

Register your card online

Step 1

Note: The My Vodafone website and app will auto log you in when you're connected to the internet through Vodafone. If you're trying to register your card on a different account, try this link instead.

Step 2

Click ‘Account settings’.

  • If you’re logged in using your tablet or computer, ‘Account Settings’ is in the menu at the top of the page
  • If you’re using your phone’s web browser, you’ll find it by tapping the menu button in the top right corner of the screen
  • If you’re using the My Vodafone app, tap ‘Account Settings’ from the dashboard

Step 3

Select ‘Manage credit card’.

Step 4

Enter your card details and then click ‘Save card’.

Register your card over the phone

Step 1

Call 1511 from your mobile.

Note: You can also register a credit card by calling 1300 650 410 but you’ll need to enter your mobile number and 4 digit account enquiry PIN.

Step 2

Press 2 to recharge with a credit card.

Step 3

If you don't already have a credit card registered, you’ll be asked to register it first.

Step 4

Follow the prompts to complete the registration, and then recharge.

Important info

  • When you register your credit card, a $1 pre-authorisation is placed against your card. This is automatically refunded within 3-5 working days
  • Need to register someone else's credit card to your account?  You can, but both you and the credit card holder will need to visit a Vodafone store to authorise the registration
  • You can register an Australian or internationally issued VISA, MasterCard or AMEX card to your account
