How to reload WhatsApp

Is your WhatsApp subscription about to expire and you don't know how to renew it? Would you like clarification on the renewal prices and payment methods supported by the service? No problem, I'm here to help you. Let's start immediately to see the prices foreseen for the renewal of the subscription (all quite ridiculous, fortunately).

  • The renewal of WhatsApp for 1 year costs 89 cents.
  • The renewal for 3 years costs 2,40 euros (with a saving of 10% compared to the annual plan).
  • The renewal for 5 years costs 3,34 euros (with a saving of 25% compared to the annual plan).

The payment methods accepted by the service are different: you can use the credit card associated with your smartphone (the one with which you buy the applications, so to speak), a new credit or prepaid card, a PayPal account, or you can scale the WhatsApp subscription from your phone credit. This last option, at the time of writing, is only available for Wind and TIM customers and for users who use an Android, Windows Phone or BlackBerry terminal. Customers of other carriers and iOS users are currently excluded. But now let's ban the chatter and see step by step how to reload WhatsApp. I assure you it's very easy!

To pay with phone credit, you must be connected to the Internet via a 3G or LTE network.

Once you have chosen the payment method to use, fill out the form that is proposed to you with all the required information (eg username and password for PayPal, name and residential address for payment by telephone credit or credit card number for adding a new card), presses on Buy Now and the transaction will be completed automatically.

When the operation is completed, open the message on your PC, click on the link contained within it and make the payment via PayPal (other payment methods are not yet supported).
