An agreement was recently signed between MasterCard and South African giants, MultiChoice, to enable customers conveniently pay for their DStv subscriptions using Masterpass, a MasterCard-owned mobile digital payment service.
Customers would have the option to download Masterpass from Android and Apple app stores, register, and upload their debit, credit or prepaid cards from their respective banks into the mobile wallet. Once this is done, it saves them the hassle of entering their details anytime they intend to make payments. In case of disconnection from service, customers can settle their bills on-the-go.
According to the press release, customers can settle their DStv bills in the steps shown below:
- Click on the link received via SMS
- Set the payment option to Masterpass
- Authorise the payment by entering their debit/credit card pin or one time pin
- Account becomes updated
The parties have guaranteed users a secured payment process as the Masterpass digital wallet uses multiple layers of security.
