While Glo’s airtime transfer feature is limited to sharing among Glo users, we understand the need to transfer airtime across networks.
Whether you want to help a friend who uses Airtel or explore sharing airtime between different networks, we’ve got you covered. Although there is no approved method provided by Glo to transfer airtime to an Airtel line directly, alternative solutions exist. Here are the alternative methods:
Selling the Airtime
If you have Glo airtime and want to transfer it to an Airtel number, one way to do it is by selling the airtime to someone else. Although it’s not a direct transfer, it allows you to turn your Glo airtime into cash, which you can use to buy an Airtel recharge card. Here’s how you can do it:
- Find someone interested in buying your Glo airtime, like a friend or family member.
- Discuss and agree on how much you want to sell your Glo airtime.
- Make sure the buyer gives you their correct Glo number and transfers the airtime to that number.
- Once you receive payment from the buyer, use the cash to purchase an Airtel recharge card.
- Now that you have converted your Glo airtime into Airtel airtime, you can share it with the person you intend to transfer it to by sending them an SMS.
By following these steps, you can effectively convert and transfer your Glo airtime to an Airtel number.
Converting the Airtime to Cash
You can convert your Glo airtime to cash and transfer it to your Airtel account using various supported apps. Here are some apps you can use:
- Aimtoget Wallet
- MINTYN Digital Bank
With these apps, you can easily convert your Glo airtime into cash. However, remember that each app has its terms and conditions, including the commission fee they charge.
