The deadline for EcoCash and Mobile Money Operators (MMOs) to join ZimSwitch as the national switch was the 30th of September 2020. That deadline has passed and yesterday we learned that EcoCash had completed the integration. Transfers could now be done from EcoCash, for example, to other mobile wallets and bank accounts.
ZimSwitch has, in a statement, confirmed that the integration process for all mobile money operators has been completed:
