How to register for a Taura account

After you have downloaded the Taura app it will ask you to register your phone number. It will automatically pick the country code where you are. If the country code is wrong you can change he country. You then enter your phone number without the first zero. You will then receive a code that you must enter within 15 minutes. On registration we found the code did not respond on submitting. We just removed the last digit of the code and entered it again and it immediately confirmed the account registration was successful.

How to recharge your Taura account.

There are quiet a few ways to recharge your Taura account.

  1. Recharge with Taura vouchers. Taura vouchers are recharge codes that work just like airtime recharge cards. The recharge pin is a 14 digit pin.
