NetOne last week awarded the first batch of winners from the OneMoney 100% School Fees Back Promotion to parents and guardians who had won their school fees back. The OneMoney 100% School Fees Back Promotion is to award about 100 parents and guardians.
NetOne Mobile Financial Services Managing Director, Mr. Nkosinathi Ncube said NetOne launched OneMoney to create better lives for Zimbabweans and that the 100% School Fees Back Promotion was a testimony to that agenda.
“it’s is with great excitement that I stand before you our inaugural winners of the OneMoney 100% School Back Promotion. You are part of the first 100 parents and guardians who are getting their 100% school fees back into your wallet” said Mr Ncube.
“When we launched OneMoney last year, our promise was to create better and happier everyday lives for Zimbabweans. Today we are here to rejoice with some of the parents who participated and won in our OneMoney 100% School Fees Back Promotion. To the winners, I say congratulations,” Mr Ncube added.
Mr Ncube added that the agenda of NetOne was to stay closer with the customers and to maintain healthy relationships and to engage them more.
“I am delighted to announce that we are now giving our Debit cards for free to our new and existing customers and we have launched this offer this week” he added.
During a questioning and answer, NetOne’s Marketing and PR Executive Eldrette Shereni disclosed that NetOne was pilot testing OneMoney as payment gateway in shops and currently they were testing in OK shops.
“We are piloting the system at OK Eastgate and OK Mbare. With this system even if you forget your phone somewhere the till operator can just enter your number and you can enter your pin. So even if you forget your phone or the card you will be able to transact. We are still in the testing phase for this project with those two Ok supermarket. Once testing is done it will be in all the OKs. We are also trying to roll out this solution before the grand challenge is over.” She revealed.
Zimbabwe has been steadily moving towards a completely cashless society for a number of years. Cash is now used in less than 10% of all cash transactions in stores.
