Frequently asked questions about Payment methods and recharges

  • What acceptable forms of payment there are in LabsMobile?

    Through LabsMobile platform credits can be acquired using credit card, bank transfer and local methods in some countries.

    • - Credit card. At LabsMobile we have one of the most well-known and most reputable card payment gateways in the market (Stripe). This payment gateway is compatible with any type of credit or debit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, etc.) from any bank institution. This platform charges the amount in the local currency to avoid generating any unnecessary fees or currency exchanges. The exact charge will always be made in the local currency that appears in the purchase process. Recharging credits through credit card is an immediate process that can be configured for automatic reloads so the account never runs out of credits.
    • - Bank transfer. This type of payment is only available for euro area countries due to the high bank fees imposed for international transfers. In case a client from outside the Euro zone prefers to pay through a bank transfer, they must request LabsMobile bank details and take charge of any fees or commission. The corresponding amount of credits will be added to the account once the proof of transfer is received.
