  • Voucher

If you want to pay by credit card or PayPal, you can set up the automatic top-up function.

2.1 Credit card payment

You can pay for your Ortel Mobile SIM card and top up your prepaid credit via credit card (Mastercard, Visa). Credit cards can be used to pay for immediate and automatic top-ups.

Immediate top-up via credit card:

In "MeinOrtel", choose the credit card payment option under "Top up credit". We accept Mastercard and Visa. Once you have entered the card holder name, credit card number and credit card validity period, you will be prompted to enter the CVC code. This is a 3-digit number on the back of your credit card.

3D secure

Many credit card providers use the "3D secure" authentication procedure to ensure that the card holder and online retailer taking part in a transaction are legitimate.

During the payment process, an additional screen from your credit card provider will open once you have entered your card details. Enter your SecureCode here. The transaction will take place only if the SecureCode is correct. This provides an additional layer of security because only your credit card provider knows your SecureCode.

Automatic top-up via credit card:

In "MeinOrtel", choose the credit card payment option under "Top up credit/Automatic top-up". Here you can enter your credit card details for quick and secure registration and repeated use.

2.2 PayPal payment

To pay in this way, you need to be registered with PayPal and have a PayPal account.

Immediate top-up via PayPal:

In "MeinOrtel", choose the PayPal payment option under "Top up credit". You will be redirected to PayPal automatically, where you can register with your login details. You then need to confirm your payment with PayPal.

2.3 Payment via Sofortüberweisung

3. Enter a valid TAN to confirm the transfer.

2.4 Payment via Paysafe card

- Automatic renewal of tariff options
As soon as one of your tariff options expires, we will automatically top up your account with the amount required to automatically renew the option.

Depending on the tariff options in use, your account will always be topped up to the next possible full euro amount.

The €0.10 difference will of course be credited to your account.

- Monthly top-up
You can specify a day of the month on which your account is to be topped up. We will top up your credit with the amount you have chosen on the specified date.
Tip: If you want to activate the monthly top-up function with at least €20, you will receive a monthly bonus of €2.50 for each successful top-up.

- Ortel4ever
You can set up the "Ortel4ever" top-up if you want to ensure that the credit window for your Ortel Mobile SIM card will not expire and deactivate the card.
