Zimbabwe’s Postal Service Enters Online Payments Game

Who doesn’t want convenience these days? Thanks to an aggregation of different technologies, it’s now our 2015 prerogative. Just ask the people that have been coming up with the various workarounds that amplify this convenience and are making something out of it.

With all these solutions popping up, Zimpost, the state-owned enterprise that owns and manages all local postal services didn’t want to be left behind and has now introduced its own online payments and e-money platform.

It’s available on www.zimpost.mobi and users accessing the platform are required to register and create an account which will be used as a wallet for conducting the various transactions on the platform.

Once registered, users have to deposit money into their wallets, after which they can select to buy ZESA prepaid electricity vouchers and airtime, make merchant payments, carry out deposit and withdrawals to their wallet, as well as handle mobile money, bank and wallet transfers.
