Some countries have tax rules that apply to airtime or data top-ups which mean that the amount you receive for your recharge will be reduced by a certain percentage after you pay. By how much exactly? It depends on the country. Yes, the amount depends on the consumption tax (sometimes known as sales tax) percentage which varies per country.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any control over this, but we let you know on the checkout page if the amount you receive will be reduced because of consumption taxes, and by how much.
