We are changing our development strategy and focusing on network support throughout Ukraine. We restore communications in war zones and provide quality services in the face of a full-scale invasion. In this regard, we are forced to stop the operation of the SharPay mobile application.

- transfer from a mobile account to a bank card,
- transfer from a mpbile accaunt to another mobile account (in particular, on other operators),

To make payments from a mobile account, you can use the services of our partner EasyPay on the website easypay.ua.

Payments for services
To share is easy
With SharPay it is easy and profitable to spread money on cards and mobile accounts.
Use the “Share money” section to transfer funds from your mobile account* or bank card to another subscriber’s card or mobile account.

Team up with friends
The “Chip in money” function will allow you to initiate fundraising between friends and other users of the app.
We do not store or transfer your saved bank card details to other users, so the money will be collected on your mobile account. Because of this, we recommend using this feature only for Vodafone prepaid subscribers.
The button that initiates fundraising is called “Chip in money” and is located on the Home screen in the lower slider by swiping to the right.
The “Split the bill” function allows you to share the already successful payment in the app with friends (contacts from the phone book).
We do not store or transfer saved bank card details to other users, so the money will be collected on your mobile account. Recommend to use this function only for Vodafone prepaid subscribers.

After restoring the phone number and unlocking the SharPay app, the data of cards from MasterPass (after passing the verification) will still be available.
A bank card can only be linked to 1 phone number. It may be that you register the Sharpay app with one phone number, and the card that you are trying to add is already linked to your other number.
- If you have access to the app to which the card was linked to a different phone number that you register in SharPay – you need to enter this app and delete the card. After that, try again to add the card to SharPay.
- If there is no access to the app, you need to go to the Masterpass website using the link – log in or register and delete the card in your personal account. After deleting, you can connect the cards to another phone number, you can try to add the card to SharPay again.
Share the bill function and fundraising initiation are only available for Vodafone prepaid subscribers. All other functions and operations in the app are available to all subscribers.
You need to contact the card issuing bank (the bank that issued your card) and make sure that the payment was successful.
If the payment was successful, but the funds were not credited to the account, then it is necessary to:
- Request a card account statement from the bank about the success of the payment.
- After that, send a scan / photo of an extract with a brief description of the situation to ComplaintManagementSystem@vodafone.ua.
Payment can be made by Visa and MasterCard cards issued by any bank of Ukraine. The card shall be activated for online payments. This question can be clarified in the support service of the bank that issued the card. The bank’s contact center number is indicated on the card reverse side. Payments and money transfers in the app are made only in the national currency of Ukraine.
- The minimum amount to top-up a mobile account is 5 UAH. The maximum amount for one top-up from bank card is 14 999 UAH. The maximum amount for top-ups is 75 000 UAH per month (30 calendar days).

Possible reasons for the delay:
- A different mobile phone number is assigned to card in the bank. It is necessary to clarify in the bank’s contact center how the number can be changed. The bank’s contact center number is indicated on the card reverse side.

Payment may fail for the following reasons:
- Insufficient funds on mobile account/card.
- Payment exceeds payment card or mobile account limits.
- The card has expired.
- The transaction is not allowed by the issuing bank: this means that the bank that issued the card refused to make the payment. This is most often due to blocking the card for online payments or set limits. To resolve this issue, you need to contact your bank. The phone number is indicated on the back of the card. Important: Limits can limit both the fact of online payment and the maximum one-time payment amount and the maximum daily payment amount.

It can be used to conduct financial transactions with funds from a mobile account or a bank card:

You can read more about the application on the webpage https://pay.vodafone.ua/en

While registering in the applicaton you will receive an OTP password on your phone. Please, do not inform it anyone – either the «employees of the bank security service» or other people who may be taken as the representative of Vodafone company. No one has the right to ask you this password. You can enter it only in Sharpay application and nowhere else.
You can learn more about the possibilities of payments and transfers from a mobile account on our website
To secure your mobile funds, remember 2 simple rules:
- Never send OTP passwords that come in an SMS from Sharpay to anyone. Neither bank service nor the mobile operator has the right to ask you for this password.
So if you are asked for an OTP in a phone conversation, you can hang up, it is definitely the fraud.
- Do not enter your personal data on the third-party sites: mobile number, card number, OTP password. Sharpay exists exclusively as a mobile application. Also note that we do not cooperate with services that do not officially work in Ukraine, such as Webmoney, Qiwi or Yandex Money.
- Website address. If it looks like this https://www.vodafone.ua/en – has a national top-level domain – .ua, it means that the company has confirmed that it has a registered trademark. Large companies always confirm its existence.
- Design, texts and general structure of the site. Fraudulent sites that try to look like official pages usually have outdated design, not updated logos, pictures, colors may also differ from the colors of the brand. Most likely, no one will make multiple localized versions of the site. Texts can have a many mistakes.
- Contact and feedback block. Large and medium-size companies are unlikely to use popular mail services like Gmail or UKR.NET. Most likely, the mail will look like this (name of department /service/functions, then «@», company name and domain «.ua». For example, email@example.com. In Ukrainian telecom – operators the contact center number is usually one and starts with 0 800.
The fraudsters phone a person and call themselves bank security officers. The person is told that his/her card has been blocked and compromised. So right now the funds need to be transfered from the card, for example, to the mobile phone. Then the same «employee» asks to inform quickly the confirmation codes with SMS, to make sure that everything went well.
At first glance, everything can look normal, safe, and sometimes, like caring for a client. Let’s see what’s wrong here:
- First, make sure that your bank was named. If the «employee» correctly gave your card number, it does not mean that he actually works at the bank.
- Secondly, the security service does not call its clients on this subject and banks do not send SMS with such information.
- Banks never allow a customer to withdraw money into a mobile account, even if it is a client’s mobile account.
What’s really going on in this situation.
The card is not blocked, the person communicates with fraudsters. While the person is transfering all funds from the card to his/her mobile account, fraudsters register it in the application. The person receives an SMS with an OTP password for registration and for the first operation. In stress, a person may fail to read the text of the SMS, where it is written that no one has the right to ask his/her for this password, pass it to fraudsters, and they transfer the funds from a mobile phone to their card or phone in a few minutes.
How to protect yourself.
Remember that the fraudsters’ tactic is to keep the person “on the phone” as long as possible, not to give him/her an opportunity to get over it and to think. They urge on and frighten with the consequences of what happens if you don’t follow their instructions. Of course, each of us, when we hear that our card has been compromised, will panic and do whatever it takes to prevent a loss of money, but that’s when we have to stop and try to figure out what is going on.
