The transaction will not be completed and you will receive an error message if your MTN prepaid account does not have enough airtime to cover the amount you have asked to transfer.
If you have a postpaid account, you can only transfer airtime while your balance is positive. When your account balance is negative, you won’t be able to transfer airtime (-).
If your account balance is N-300.00, for example, MTN Share will be unavailable to you. If your account balance is N1,000.00, on the other hand, you will be allowed to transfer airtime up to the N1,000.00 available in your account.
