Telecash, the second most popular mobile money payments platform in Zimbabwe, will no longer accept DStv payments. Telecel (the company), sent out the statement to its customers this morning via SMS announcing the change:
Due to factors beyond our control, DSTV payments on Telecash will cease on 28 February 2017, till further notice. All other services remain available.
In fact, DSTV emphasised that this was just an EcoCash thing in a statement they sent to us when we asked them. “This development does not affect any other payment platform available to Zimbabwean subscribers”, they said.
We’ll be finding out more from both parties so hopefully we’re all clear what’s going on.
For those of you that were using Telecash for your DStv payments, find here how you can use other methods to pay for your DSTV.
