Know that just like MTN share and sell, Airtel also allows customers to share their airtel balance with their friends and family. This approach is to enable everyone to share their airtime with family and friends on the Airtel network.
For every airtime transfer on airtel to another number, there is a charge attached. The transfer charge is N10 per transfer. It does not matter when you send as low as 100 or more.
Well, it is, at least better than having to stroll out to get the recharge. Also, no matter where you are, you can always share your airtime with family or friends. What you just need is the Airtel code for transfer which will be shared in this article.
What do you need to transfer on Airtel network?
- Airtel Sim
- Airtel Transfer pin (you must change your pin upon activation)
- Airtel service number for transfer (432)
- Amount enough to cover transfer and charge fee

How to transfer Airtel airtime to another number
Step 1 – Have the airtime amount loaded if you are short on balance.
Make sure you have the amount or more on your balance. Since Airtel will be charging you 10, you should have the extra 10 available on your phone.
Eg. you are sending 100, you should have 110 or more for the service to work.
Step 2: Change your transfer pin if you have not done so.
If this is your first time of using the service. Then you need to change your pin. Default pin is 1234 but if 1234 does not work, use 0000.
- Dial *432#
- Type in 3 on the space provided by the pop up box
- Follow onscreen instruction.
- You will receive a response when done.
The reason why Airtel always advise you to change your pin is to protect against unauthorized airtime transfer from your airtel account to another. Always endeavour to protect your pin just like you would protect your card pin.
