Auto Top-Up

Yolla also supports the auto top-up option. By this method, you can ensure that you’ll always have enough credits to call anyone, at any time you want.

When making a payment with your bank card, you’ll notice a check box that enables auto top-up. When selected, your balance will be topped up automatically when it drops below $1. The following amount will be charged to the card you use when you first enable auto top-up.

To manage your subscription and make changes to the auto top-up feature, simply go to Payment settings in the Yolla app. You have complete flexibility in turning the auto top-up feature on or off. Additionally, you can also change the amount by which your account is auto topped up.
