Airtel Money to pay DSTV subs

By Edith Mwale, Lusaka, Zambia

Telecom Company Airtel Zambia has entered into partnership with Multi-choice Zambia to facilitate the payment of DSTV subscriptions through Airtel Money.

Launched eight months ago, Airtel Money is a service that allows customers to send and receive money using their mobile phone.
At the signing ceremony in Lusaka, Zambia Airtel customer service director Joseph Kafwariman said the partnership would enable customers around the country to pay the bills from the convenience of their sitting rooms and offices.

“Once the account is activated, payments can be made to DSTV in real time and Airtel aims at delivering relevant and innovative mobile solutions,” Kafwariman said.

Airtel Money includes a comprehensive package of m-commerce and payment features currently available on the Zambian market and it seeks to empower its customers with access to convenient, secure and readily available way of making payments and sending money through the mobile platform.

Multi-choice Zambia managing director Simon Bota said the company was happy to add another payment platform to the current platform which is currently available to their existing subscribers.

“The partnership with Airtel shows our desire to continually make available as many payment platforms to our subscribers such as this one we are announcing today.

Bota said the partnership means that Airtel customer can now conveniently pay their DSTV subscriptions without having to come to any of the Multi-choice branches and agencies.
