  1. Hold the Snapper card to the NFC sweet spot on the back of your phone flat and still. Your card number, balance and recent transactions will appear.
  2. Tap the + sign under your balance and then select the $ sign.
  3. Use the dial to select the amount you want to add to your Snapper balance, and tap TOP UP.
  4. Enter your credit or debit card details (we accept Visa and MasterCard).
  5. After you complete the transaction, you will have the option of saving your card details and protecting them with a 4-digit PIN. This makes it a lot faster to top up.
