If You already have one refillable PIN and try to buy another one (buying the same phone card on the same email address), this transaction will be considered as a refill for your previously received PIN number.

>> Here are the main charges that may be applied for prepaid phone cards:
• Connection Fee.
It applies each time when a phone call is connected. The charge varies depending on destination number You are calling.
• Tax.
It’s usually deducted from Your phone card balance for each phone call made. It varies from 0 to 25%; on our website it varies from 0 to 15%. For example, if the rate is 5 ¢/min and tax is 10%, for 20 minutes phone call your card’s balance will be reduced for $1.10.

Phone card provider will start to charge a maintenance fee within 24 hours after the first phone call is finished. It value varies, on our website it’s not higher than 69 cents. The maintenance fee can be charged every month, every two weeks, or every week.
• Rounding/Increment.
This is the basic unit for phone call duration calculation. Our prepaid phone cards can be rounded to 1 second, 30 seconds, one, two or three minutes.
Please consider the table below as an example of calculating phone call minutes to be charged depending on rounding.


• Pay-Phone Surcharge.
Prepaid phone cards provide the most convenience when you want to make cheap phone calls anywhere, but there is usually a surcharge between $0.30 up to $0.69 per call when You use a public pay-phone.

>> How many minutes are on my card, and how can I check the balance on my card?

-Our phone cards are dollars/cents based. The number of minutes depends on rate applied for the destination You call. You'll be informed how many minutes You have on your card, after a destination number is entered; with some cards You'll be notified about your balance after the PIN is entered.


• Finding the best rate.
First of all, select what countries You want to call FROM and TO. If You are calling to a cellular phone, choose the country You want to call TO, press "Search" button. You will see the search results for that particular country for calling to a landline phone, please click on "Details" for cellular phone rates.
The lowest rates are shown on the top of page. Each card displays the amount of minutes available for different card’s nominations.
Note: Cell phone rates are usually much higher than landline phone rates for the same country.
Cell phone rates may be not listed for some destinations. If You still would like to know the rate that is not listed, please contact us and we will provide the rate information or the number where You can find out this information.


• Finding the right phone card.
To find the best phone card for You we recommend you to undertake the following steps:
• Find the best rates for the country You want to call TO, taking into consideration whether You are calling landline phone or cellular phone (see "Finding the best rate").


• Considering Your most frequently used calling pattern, choose a card with the most appropriate features – card with the lowest rate is not always the best for You!
* If You mostly have short conversation phone calls, or you are not sure the person you are calling is there, and the phone call may trigger an answer machine:
– Make sure the card You are buying doesn’t have connection fee. The best way to evaluate whether a cheaper phone card with connection fee is worthwhile or not is to estimate the average time for your phone calls. If you make 15 minutes calls, a card for 3 cents/min with $1.00 connection fee is actually more expensive than a card for 7 cents/min with no connection fee. A phone card with high connection fee is good for the case when you know your party is there and you intend to talk for a long time.
– Choose phone card with rounding not more than 1 minute.
* If You are planning to use your card not very often, and would like to keep it for 2-4 months:
– Make sure the card You are buying has low maintenance fee or doesn’t have it at all.
– Pay attention to card’s validity period.
* If You are calling using a payphone:
– Choose the phone card with low payphone surcharge.


• To find the most appropriate phone card for calling different destinations:
– Considering your calling pattern, find the most appropriate phone cards for each destination.
– Use "Compare Cards" option to compare the cards according to their features and rates offered for different destinations, and choose the best for yourself. For examle "Call USA - Russia".
– Sometimes, it’s cheaper to buy two different phone cards, for calling two different destinations, rather than buying one phone card that has low rate for one destination, but comparatively high rate for another destination.
Note: Before You buy a phone card, make sure You read card’s details, especially purchasing a card with an extremely low rate!
