They say necessity is the mama of all inventions, so when the going gets tough instead of just whining some people find solutions.
Cash is a problem, no doubt. We’ve tried to go with plastic money but things like airtime are still not so easy to swipe for particularly if you don’t intend on buying anything else besides a dollar worth of airtime.
Uuuh, well for Econet users that is not really a problem since there’s EcoCash but not so much for other network subscribers i.e. Telecel and NetOne. Of course there’s Telecash and OneMoney but really, who uses those?
Nonetheless, the major problem started when people started migrating from Econet to other mobile networks because it became expensive. Not really became expensive as in shot up, but rather remained at the same price while the rest of the mobile networks became cheaper by means of promotions etc. and because the money is in the Ecocash line, it becomes difficult for people to move to any other network.
Well, good news is you can actually move to any other mobile network as you see fit without being bound by the fear of how to then get airtime even without cash. Paynow topup allows you to buy Telecel or NetOne airtime using EcoCash and here’s how:

You will then receive an SMS on your phone (which has the EcoCash line)

There you have it, it’s that simple.
