How can I add data to my plan?

Quick answer

Adding extra data to your plan is easy! If you've linked a payment method to your account, simply text the Data Pack shortcut to 568 - that'll be either 1GB, 2.5GB, 4GB or 10GB. Alternatively head to the 'My plan' area of the amaysim app or 'My Plan & Data' in My amaysim.

How can I add extra data to my plan?

If you've linked a payment method to your account, simply follow one of the below steps to add a Data Pack:

  • Text the Data Pack shortcut you want from your amaysim mobile number to 568 – that'll be 1GB, 2.5GB, 4GB or 10GB;
  • Head to the My Plan area of the amaysim app and select a data pack;
  • Or head to My Plan & Data in My amaysim and select your chosen data pack.

If you’re a FLEXI or AS YOU GO customer, we'll use any credit that's on your account as payment towards any extra data you add. If you don’t have enough credit, we’ll simply charge the remaining balance to the payment method on your account.

When can I add extra Data ?

If you want to add extra Data to your UNLIMITED or data-only plan, you’ll need to have used 85% or more of your plan's included data. This is so you can get the most out of your plan data.

Want tips on how you can use your data wisely?

Don't worry, we're here to show you the ropes on how you can stay in control your data usage while doing what you love online.

Paying for your amaysim Data Pack with a voucher

Since we don’t sell specific plan vouchers for our Data Packs, you can simply use regular credit vouchers to pay for them.

They’re not connected to any plan, so all you'll need to do is redeem the voucher and use the credit from the voucher to pay for the extra data. (Regular credit vouchers come in the amounts of $10, $20, $30 and $50)

Once you’ve applied the voucher, text the Data Pack shortcut from your amaysim mobile number to 568 . For example, if you’ve applied a $10 voucher to your account, text'1GB' to 568 to add the Data Pack using the voucher credit.

Switching between Data Packs

Switching between Data Packs is easy, just keep in mind you can only recharge with a Data Pack of equal or greater size if you’re adding a new Data Pack during an existing 30 day period.

Adding the same Data Pack

If you want to add a Data Pack that's of the same value as your existing Data Pack before it has expired, you’ll need to have used 85% or more of your existing Data Pack’s included data.

For example, if you have a 2.5GB Data Pack and want to add another 2.5GB Data Pack before the 30 day expiry period ends, you’ll need to have used at least 2176MB of your included data before adding your second 2.5GB Data Pack.

Adding a larger Data Pack

You can upgrade to a larger Data Pack at any time during your existing Data Pack’s 30 day expiry period - any unused data will be added to your new Data Pack and extended for a new 30 day expiry period.
