    1. Funny thing I experienced, I tried $1 first, it refused, then I tried out $2, refused 2 times, I thought maybe I didn’t have money, checked balance then tried one more time and it worked? On $1 it said transaction below allowed minimum bill payment value of $0.50, Please enter an Amount Above the Minimum Bill payment value of $0.50.

  1. convenience to customers bt sub agents are out of business, mari inoenda kune vakapfuma kare

    1. u honestly dont expect big businesses to stop operating.

      U seem to believe munhu anofanira kutsvaga mari to some level then osiira vamwe. U forget kuti that person made mone because ane better ideas or better implementation than those who failed. so its good for us all kuti aite business than kusiira van gono.

      1. I have just bought a $4 zesa token and got confirmation only no token number. its 3 hours what do I do

  2. I tried it when I had $4 and wanted $3.50 electricity coupon and it said your float does not allow you, seems you are charged a dollar for that??

    1. You are actually not charged, 5 dollars gives u 5 dollars assuming u dont owe anything to ZEsa

  3. For me I think this is a welcome and convenient development…especially considering the frustrations i have met on a number of times after traveling all the way to an agent/ zesa office only to be told dat the network is dwn. Thank you ZESA and EcoCash i can now pay my zesa whilst in my blankets. lol

  4. Finally!!!!! Like most things in our beloved country, they come after the majority have suffered and struggled.

  5. It’s a great service – just make sure you don’t buy when magetsi anyasopera zvachose coz these systems always act up on THAT DAY when you really needed it urgently. Took me five or six tries to get through the whole process without it freezing or just crashing but once I did, it was good. What they really need is a longcode (or is it shortcode? – like *151*2*5*etc) so that I don’t have to go through so many steps and can just pre-enter the code combination plus meter number without it crashing or timing out mid-process.

  6. are you charged for buying electricity thru ecocash, that is if you have $5 in your wllet you can not buy $5 worth of electricity

  7. i think its a convenient offering considering the ever increasing shortages of hard cash with most mobile agents not offering ‘cash outs” . i hv just bot my zesa using ecocash whilst im in a kombi from skl….thanks zesa and eco cash. i hope we will not start to hear such issues like ‘system is down etc……

  8. Help … My payment was successful … But no voucher .. Used the ‘retrieve voucher” option but it came back “external application down” .. Same thing ALL DAY .. Dialed the help number 114 but it just keeps cutting ☹️
