PayU now enables customers to purchase airtime and electricity online

In their bid to making online payments in South Africa easier and more convenient, PayU, SA’s largest online and mobile service provider has just incorporated online airtime and electricity purchasing into their offering.

“We are always looking for innovative ways to add customer value,” says Mark Chirnside, CEO of PayU. “Our ever-increasing product offering is testament to this philosophy which now includes being able to purchase electricity and airtime online. Before adding new services to our portfolio, we always ensure that they adhere to our criteria of being safe, convenient and easy,”

It has traditionally always been a struggle to purchase electricity around the clock in South Africa. In addition to securely speeding through checkout at some of SA’s leading online retailers, PayU customers can now purchase electricity and airtime securely via any Internet enabled device such as a mobile, pc or tablet at any time.
