Can I send top-up to telecoms outside Afghanistan?
No, at this stage we only support Afghanistan. But we are discovering opportunities to launch in other countries as well.
Can I buy top-up from other countries for telecoms in Afghanistan?
Yes, you absolutely can as long as you have a Mastercard, Visa Card or a PayPal account.
How do you control the exchange rate?
We use an online service to exchange Afghani into USD. The rates are updated on an hourly basis and it isn't much different from the market rates. When entering the amount in Afghani for a top-up, the system immediately shows you how much you will be charged in USD.
How much will each transaction cost to process the top-up?
There is a 5% transaction fee. For instance, if you have to purchase 500 Afghani as a top-up, you will have to pay $6.76 including the 5% transaction fee. The transaction fee is paid to the payment processor.
How secure is WasalPay?
Security is one of the biggest considerations in everything we do. We process your payment through Afghanistan International Bank’s e-commerce payment gateway for Mastercard & Visa card users and PayPal for users who wish to purchase mobile-top up using their PayPal accounts.

If we recharge with WasalPay, do we pay the 10% telecom fee?
Yes, it's automatically deducted by the government and therefore, you will receive the amount - 10% as top-up.
