Pay as you go credit problem!

I have been trying to buy credit for the last four days and being told: "It is not working"

A local friend pointed me in the direction of turkcell website and after scratching my head and a few other places, I found the section for pay as you go. After three goes and a few choice words, I finally got it to accept my card payment but the credits never came through ||:(( Well, it's a bleedie nightmare and finally gave up!

Oh well, heads up peeps, this is Cyprus.

All you out there do as you are told and stay safe w:)

I have tried several times to use this on line system and it would seem to me that they will only accept a credit card drawn on a Turkish bank as the same thing happens each time.

Have managed successfully to use a Revolut card and less successfully an Iktisatbank card.

I tried several places yesterday to top up but was told "not working"
I went on to Turkcell website and topped up no problem.
I used a credit card issued by Iktisatbank.
I did notice that the min amount of credits you can buy is 600, ie 39tl.

One solution is to get someone with a credit card to do the online top up for you.
