LOCAL company ezFuelapp.com has launched its first patent registered mobile application which enables Zimbabweans to purchase fuel online.
The mobile application is now available for download on Google Play Store and Apple App Store.
Users can then redeem fuel via the ezFuelapp at approved pick up points or service stations all over the country.
"The idea came to us after losing a litre here and there with pre-paid coupons. For example, you are topping your car and you have a 20 litre coupon. Your car only needs 18,46 litres to fill up. Consumers are losing out on the balance," said marketing director for Indev Tech Pty Ltd Azhar Khan.
To redeem fuel, one has to take their phone to the selected pick up point. The application also keeps users up to date where ezFuel is accepted and redeemable.
Zimbabwe has been experiencing erratic fuel supplies for quite some time now whilst availability has been intermittent since January.
The price of fuel has gone up multiple times this year owing to severe foreign currency shortages.
Zimbabwe consumes about 4,7 million litres of diesel and 3,8 million litres of petrol daily.
