    1. I also encounter the same with quickteller when i tried to recharge about two weeks ago. If you are trying to pay with quickteller, then use the below format.

      first 3 digit space next 4 digit space last 4 digit. In your case, it should be 018 3111 3717. This works for me, if it doesn’t for you, you will need to contact their customer care.

      You can also try it for other payment gateway.
