Paying for football tips with AirTel and MTN

We are delighted to announce that as of the 9th May 2017 The Footy Tipster supports payment with AirTel and MTN in Uganda.

AirTel and MTN are two major ways to buy access to services with your mobile device, and we’ve worked with our Ugandan partner YoDime to be able to bring this payment solution onto the site.

We are very excited because for a very long time our Ugandan fans have had their hands tied when it came to getting our members tips and team news because the payment providers we used just didn’t work for them.

Airtel and MTN

So, how do I pay for the service with Airtel or MTN?

It is very straight forward.

  • Sign up for a free account (you will need a username to get access to our tips)
  • Go to our membership section
  • Select the frequency you would like to pay (for example weekly)
  • You will see some options along the top
  • Select either AirTel or MTN
  • Follow the instructions on screen – which will ask you to text some information on your phone and then complete the form on our page
  • We will be in touch as soon as possible to finalise setting up your account

Until we work out all the kinks it could take up to 24 hours for your access once we’ve received payment, but we hope to make this automatic very shortly.

Does this only work in Uganda?

Right now we can only accept MTN and Airtel from Ugandan phone numbers, but this is something we are hoping to expand over time. If you would like to see your country covered with a payment system please leave a comment below.
