Balance alerts and notifications 

SmartPay+ and SmartPay

The PrepayPower app always lets you know when your balance is low.

It doesn't matter if you're out working, walking or walking to work, you'll receive the following updates:

  • Low-balance alerts when your credit reaches €10, €1 and €0.

  • Notifications that Emergency Credit is available if your balance falls between €1 and -€20.

  • Alerts when your balance drops to -€10 and -€20 (if you've activated Emergency Credit).

  • Early-morning warnings if there's a risk of temporary power loss that day.

Reminder: You cannot temporarily lose power during Friendly Credit Hours.

Only SmartPay+

  • Alerts when your balance is very low or critically low.

  • Top-up reminders to avoid temporary power loss when Friendly Credit Hours end (between 2 and 3 pm from Monday to Friday).
