A comparison Zimbabwean mobile money tariffs

The past 10 years wouldn't have been possible without you. Thank you!

mobile-money-phoneThe local mobile money transfer market has been going through a number of changes with three players joining the fray in the past year. With such a field the most common area of competitive differentiation is pricing.

We have put together the list of mobile money transfer rates for the mobile payment services offered by the operators namely Ecocash, Telecash, OneWallet, and Nettcash.

A quick comparison shows how Netone’s OneWallet has the lowest tariffs. This advantage does however come with the drawback of a limited agent and merchant network which Netone seems to have tried to make up for by offering exclusive mobile money services such as the ZESA prepaid electricity payment option.

Nettcash, the latest entrant in mobile money has the highest tariffs here, although their network neutrality is the biggest advantage that might be considered as the greatest consolation for its users.

With these tariffs likely to be revised as these service providers’ market share changes competitive advantage is likely to be determined by service variety, bill payment options and convenience.

Below are three tables illustrating the different operators and their tariffs

  1. Bloody hounds
    All these tariffs are way too high.
    Why don’t you do the same table but comparing with other countries like Kenya, the birthplace of this kind of thing. You will see that, the Zim mobile money transfer are taxing the already burdened population too bad.
