How to Recharge Tiktok coins Online 

Tiktok web has made recharging your coins balance easier by providing the custom Coins option which allows you to top up a large number of coins without limitation. 

Unfortunately, the buy and Recharge coins webpage isn’t available for all countries, so if you tried following the below guide and you receive a not supported pop-up from the website then it’s not our fault. 

  • Open https://www.tiktok.com/coin on a browser 
  • Select a set coin amount or click on the custom recharge option 
  • Type in a figure and you’ll see the equivalent buying price 
  • Click on “Buy Now” to proceed 
  • Input your card details or PayPal details to make the purchase. 
  • Click on Confirm and the coins will be updated in your Tiktok balance.

Alternatively, if you don’t want to follow the above link.

How to Recharge in Tiktok using PayPal 

Recharging your Tiktok coins is only available on the TikTok purchase web page and as I said earlier, the site is only available for selected regions. 

Nevertheless, you can navigate to tiktok.com/coin > sign-in > select an amount of coin you’ll like to recharge > select Paypal as your payment option. 

That’s it. 

Troubleshooting Tiktok Recharge Failed 

If you tried linking your debit card to your Google Play or using it as a standalone payment method and it’s declining then here are some possible fixes you can try. 

  • Use a prepaid card to initiate coins purchase 
  • Try buying coins using a PayPal account 
  • Try another bank card – the bank doesn’t support online payments  
  • Reduce the number of coins you want to recharge 
  • Try some other time – server or network issues. 

There’s no way the coins recharge should be successful after trying any of the above troubleshooting guides. 

How to view Tiktok Coins History  

If you’d like to see a transaction history of how you spent and recharged your coins then it’s achievable using the TikTok mobile app. 

  • Go to your profile 
  • Navigate to Settings and Privacy 
  • Click on Balance under the account section 
  • On the coins balance page, you can click on the log-like icon at the top right side to view only coin recharge history. 
  • Click on Recharge in front of your balance 
  • Next, tap the log-like icon with a coin image attached to it. It is located at the top right-hand corner 
  • You should now see the history of your coins which will include sent, collected and recharged coins. 

This way you should be able to keep a tab of your coin usage with the user, time and date which the coin transaction was initiated. 

How to Get TikTok Coins for Free 

One of the surest ways to get free coins to your Tiktok balance is by engaging with TikTok hosts who share treasure boxes during their live events.

  • You’ll be given a small amount out of the coin in the treasure box 

You can also meet an empty box depending on your speed or your internet connection. 

That’s it. 

You can earn from 50 coins to 100 coins in a day if you diligently search for a treasure box on TikTok live streams.
