EcoCash Users Flock To Econet Shop To Get Assistance As Post-Upgrade Problems Drag On


EcoCash upgraded their platform two weeks ago but most users of the platform have reached that the upgrade was in actuality a downgrade for all intents and purposes.


After the upgrade users couldn’t buy airtime, had their accounts blocked and lost money whilst trying to transact. The icing on the cake was a botched user experience that we actually wrote about in another post.

Anyway, the aftermath of all that is extremely lengthy queues at Econet shops in the CBD as EcoCash tries to clear the errors which keep arising due to the current instability of the system which leads to a vicious cycle and queues this long:

  1. You have been barred as your Id has expired. Please contact Customer Care. That is also what came through this morning. I don’t know which ID has expired

  2. A shocking experience for all Econet consumers… It is such a big cock-up that the regulator needs to step in and close them down, until the platform is stable. A locally developed platform is a joke, the same joke as the good governance we enjoy.

    1. I support locally developed systems as they save us from pumping out forex to foreign developers. However, a system needs time for testing before going full scale, a beta stage like what all startups and established apps do before an upgrade.
