I am really enjoying our two-day Digital Marketing Strategies workshop with the Econet team in Harare. We are training at Pandhari Lodge, which is a good venue for a large team.

One of our exercises is to write a blog post and here is my assignment as an example of what can be written about Econet’s Mobile Payments solution that is called EcoCash.

EcoCash is an innovative mobile payment solution that enables Econet customers to complete simple financial transactions such as;

Sending money to family and friends
Buying prepaid airtime for themselves
Or other Econet subscribers

You can also pay for goods and services such as your groceries, utility bill, Kombi fares and salaries.

EcoCash addresses these problems

  • You don’t need to travel many kilometers to stand in a bank queue
  • You don’t have to worry about losing your money
  • You don’t need to worry about always having cash available
  • Don’t get cigarettes and sweets as your change

Benefits of EcoCash

  • Convenience as you don’t need to visit a bank
  • Save travel time
  • Your money is safe even if you lose the phone
  • Speed and reliability of the service no matter where you are
