Zoto is a mobile app that takes away all the hassle in buying airtime for your mobile phone. With just a few clicks you can load airtime on your mobile phone using the Zoto Mobile Recharge App. I recently installed the app on my Android phone and will be sharing my experience in this review. The Zoto Mobile Recharge App is also available for iOS devices.
50% Cashback on Each Recharge
There are a lot of convenient solutions for buying airtime for your mobile phone. However, what makes Zoto stand out is that you get free airtime when you recharge. Zoto gives you 50% of the value of the airtime you purchase as cashback up to a maximum cashback of 100 Naira per recharge. This means you can get as much as 100 Naira per transaction.
However, for a limited time you can get an introductory 100% cashback on your first recharge with the Zoto Mobile App up to a maximum cashback of 500 Naira. Just enter TECHGUIDE as voucher code during your first recharge.
A Clean UI
Zoto is available for download for Android and iOS devices. You can download the app at the PlayStore or at the App Store. The Zoto Mobile Recharge App is a free download and is light weight (less than 4MB on Android) and as a result takes just a couple of seconds to download and install.
Once your installation is complete, Zoto will require you to enter your phone number.
You will receive a call to verify your number and then your profile will be displayed. Press continue to complete the setup.
The UI is clean and everything seems intuitive. You can clearly see the space where you enter the amount of airtime you want to buy and the Plus button that enables you buy airtime for your other mobile lines or for your friends and family.
To guide you through how to use the app, you will notice a Take a Tour link at the bottom. This will bring up Zubby, who will give a simple walk-through on how to buy airtime with the Zoto Mobile Recharge App. If you need more help, you can click on the chat icon on the top right corner for a live chat with Zubby.
On the top left corner, you will can see the menu icon. Lets click the menu icon and see the menu options. Note worthy is the Offers option, which reveals the latest airtime deals and the voucher code for accessing them.
Now lets buy airtime.
Buying Airtime on Zoto Mobile Recharge App
Buying airtime on the Zoto Mobile Recharge App is easy. Just enter the amount of airtime you want to buy and click the Proceed button.
On the next page you can apply the coupon code for the cashback. You can check Offers option in the menu for latest voucher codes. For example, as at the time of this review, Zoto is offering 50% cashback up to a maximum cashback of 100 Naira on each recharge.
For a limited time, you can get a 100% cashback up to a maximum of 500 Naira cashback on your first recharge. Just enter TECHGUIDE as voucher code. After entering the code tap the Apply link to activate the voucher and then press the Securely Pay button at the bottom.
The next couple of pages will enable you enter details of your Verve, MasterCard, or Visa ATM/Debit/Credit card. The Zoto Mobile Recharge app stores your card details, which may be cause for concern, but the app uses 128-bit Verisign SSL encryption to secure your transactions, keeping them safe from prying eyes.
If you do not want your card details stored, uncheck the Save Card for faster checkout option when entering your card’s CVV.
However, storing the card details means you don’t have to enter it each time you buy airtime, making things faster and easier. Another thing to note is that Zoto does not directly store your card details, the details are stored with MasterCard – which is the card processor used on the platform. The MasterCard gateway can store and process cards for all major issuers including VISA and Verve.
The next page allows you create a Zoto PIN which enables you ensure strangers with access to your phone do not steal your credit. The PIN will be required for authenticating every transaction.
Once you enter your PIN the payment gateway loads for you to complete the transaction.
If successful, you should see a page like this
And in a matter of seconds, your mobile phone will receive the top up.
Zoto Mobile Recharge App is a useful app that you won’t regret downloading and installing on your phone. The interface is intuitive and you will not require much help figuring things out. However if you get lost, Zoto comes with a very helpful Help Center (check menu) to guide you. You can also chat with a rep directly on the app.
But perhaps the biggest draw for the Zoto Mobile Recharge App is the free airtime you get through cashback. This means more airtime for calls and data. So, if you need a convenient and secure way to buy airtime and still get some great value for your money, the Zoto app is a good choice.
