A pioneering developer and operator of mobile payment services, has announced that it has launched its BuyPower mobile prepaid electricity service in Namibia Africa. The company is called mHITs and will offer the first service of its type in Africa where airtime is used directly to purchase prepaid electricity.
mHITs services surround a mobile payment service which allows users to send and receive payments via SMS text message.
The payment model for BuyPower Nambia represents both a disruptive but effective and convenient solution to the purchase of prepaid electricity. Through these services mHITs is also enabling the sale of prepaid electricity in remote and regional areas.
To use the service, users simply need to send an SMS containing their meter number and the pre-paid electricity token is returned by SMS. No pre-registration or bank account is required. Payment for the electricity is automatically deducted from prepaid credit or added to their postpaid account.
mHITs is the first and only provider in the world to operate this model, for more information on the service visit www.buypowernamibia.com.
