Earlier today, we noticed that EcoCash, the country’s most subscribed mobile financial service provider, recently added two new interesting features to its menu.
The two new menu items bring some much-needed convenience in this current cash crisis providing an option to pay pressing school fees and make your religious tithing without the burden of needing cash. The options were previously available, at least the school fees option to our knowledge, but were never thrown to the forefront as one of its feature services on its menu. Now all you have to do is:
- Dial *151#
- Select Option 2: Make Payment
- Select Option 5: Transfer to Church
The menu items, “Pay Your SchoolFees” and “Transfer to Church” were added under the “Make Payment Category”. After requesting to make a “transfer” one is then prompted to enter their Church’s merchant code then asked whether the transfer is a payment, tithing, building fund donation or any other transfer to the Church (you are asked to enter details for purpose of transaction).
Currently, there are 3 Churches officially listed with merchant codes by EcoCash, these are Celebration Church (36270), UFIC (35211) and ZAOGA (31986). We’re not sure if there are any other Churches with merchant codes but we think they probably are.
You can thank EcoCash for allowing you to go to Church in peace once again.
