All values available for Mobile Top Up are stated VAT inclusive
(if applicable) and inclusive of Sift’s service charges.
The value that you purchase for Mobile Top Up will be debited the credit card that you have connected to your Sift Account.

Should a Mobile Top Up transaction not be successfully completed, Sift will notify you. A transaction can either (i) fail, meaning that the reservation of the charges to your credit card will be released, or (ii) be pending, meaning that the transaction is in progress (which may continue up to 24 hours) during which time the charge will remain reserved against your credit card, but not yet been debited (and no Mobile Top Up value will reach the receiver MSISDN).
Should it come to your knowledge that a Mobile Top Up initiated by you, the cost for which has been charged to your credit card, has not reached the MSISDN identified by you, you shall notify Sift within reasonable time and provide Sift with underlying documentation evidencing the cost which was debited your credit card, and identifying the MSISDN
