Multichoice Zimbabwe is now advertising in local media letting Zimbabweans know that their Zimbabwe DSTV account can be paid for in South Africa. They are hoping to target folks with relatives in South Africa (all of us) who can pay for their account.
Multichoice Zimbabwe does not directly receive payments. Payments are done through partners mostly banks. The partners are only accepting payment in USD because Multichoice South Africa can only receive such. Not everyone in Zimbabwe has USD and thus we have a problem.
The advertisement in local media says, "Ma-friends & family yako pay at these outlets or a Kazang pay point just inform the cashier which package in SA can pay for your Zim DStv subscription in Rands.
"Bill transfer with country code 11687 plus the first 10 digits on your smartcard." Pay@bill payment is only applicable to Shoprite/ Checkers and Pick N Pay and not Kazang POS.
