How to Top Up.

At Snowball we strive for customer satisfaction through friendly and efficient support in all departments. To further extend our customer support we will be posting “How to’s” weekly on topics which we hope will make life on the web a whole lot easier for you.

To get the ball rolling our first topic will be “How to top up”, for all our clients who currently have capped accounts.

Now lets get down to it…


As a capped Snowball client, you have a set amount of gigs per month at your disposal. Now we raise the question; once those gigs are used up what is the easiest way for you to top up?

Allow me to explain… When your cap has been reached and you attempt to open a web page, you are greeted by this Snowball page:

How to Top Up.

We have made the process of topping up as easy as possible. You may choose to either use our online top up through our website, or via SMS.

Online Top Up


If you choose to use our online facility you will be redirected to the following page:

Here you are asked to enter your product username and password and select the amount of gigs you wish to top up, after that click next.

Here you will find; what package you are currently on as well as how much you would like to top up by and the price. You are also given the option, at this stage ,to change the amount you wish to top up. Once you are happy with the information you may click “confirm” and the following page will be opened:

This Means you have successfully topped up your account and are ready to resume browsing. Its that easy!

Please note: If your account is paid by credit card, please be sure to click on pay by credit card now. You will not have to pay immediately, all this will do is ensure that your top up invoices are changed to the credit card payment method and will then be debited from your credit card.

When you choose the SMS option, you are asked to send “topup username password” to 32015. Eg: topup pass12$. SMS’s charged at R1.00. This option will add a top up of 1GB to your account.
