Default Vodafone.it No Longer Allowing Recharge with Foreign Credit Card - 25-11-2013, 20:34

As recently as last week I was able to recharge my Vodafome Italy SIM with my US Amex card.

Today, I noticed they have a slightly different interface - and it now rejects my attempt to recharge with a US Amex. Any suggestions about how I can recharge if I am not in Italy to buy topup and I don't have an Italian credit card?


Edit: I found a site, http://www.rechargemysim.de/, that will recharge up to 25 Euro for a 3.90 Euro surcharge. Any other methods?

Just in case you have not tried all of these Vodafone pages:
https://ricarica.vodafone.it/vftopup
https://ricarica.vodafone.it/mobile
Inside My vodafone app there is another possibility for recharge (Ricarica One Click).

PayPal option is available as well which normally uses a different card verification system.

Since when has it stopped doing this? Do you have a link? As I mentioned in another thread, I'd had no problem with a foreign (German) CC when I topped up (about six weeks ago).

I just topped up my Italian Vodafone SIM with a Canadian issued AMEX card. Went through right away...

The problem is not foreign credit card. The problem is more than 2 topup from same credit card/paypal account in I think 3 months.

The number goes without +39. Just 34...

The probability for the top-up to succeed with a non italian credit card is much higher when the card is registered for 3D security: Verified by Visa or MasterCard SecureCode. Google will tell you where to start if you want to register the card.

There's no such a limitation
