In March - VodaPay gives you 10% more on water and electricity

Wednesday, 4 March 2020

For many South Africans, the increased cost of living is intensifying given rising food prices and increases in electricity, water and municipal tariffs. These are just some of the threats to many South Africans seeking to maintain a positive budget and ultimately, saving money. 

During the month of March, South Africans can take charge of their budgets by getting 10% more in prepaid electricity and water when using the VodaPay Masterpass app. The VodaPay app is not only for Vodacom customers, anyone with a valid South African cell number and bank card can use the app.

This is how it works: if you buy R200 worth of electricity, you get an extra R20 worth of electricity to use on your prepaid meter.

“Our aim is to provide customers with a seamless and frictionless one-channel experience, ensuring consistent, efficient and personalised customer engagement, across all touch-points. As a digital-first company, we made sure that the VodaPay Masterpass app is the digital channel of choice for paying bills”, said Vodacom Financial Services Chief Officer, Mariam Cassim.

Users simply select the “pay bills” menu option to settle a variety of accounts including DStv, taking care of a traffic fine or an SABC television license. In addition to prepaid electricity and water, Vodacom customers can buy prepaid data, airtime and SMS or voice bundles directly through the app. Customers can get an extra 10% on prepaid airtime or 1GB of data at R49 valid for 7 days or 1GB of data for R19 valid for one day. Users of the VodaPay app can also access other special offers like these under the promotions tab.

To get 10% more on electricity or water, download the VodaPay Masterpass app, register and start enjoying the benefits.

How VodaPay works:

1. Download the VodaPay App from the Apple App Store or your Android Play Store
2. Add your bank card details
3. Buy your electricity and water and get 10% more from your purchase
