Paying For Your DStv in RTGS Dollars
With the current confusion around currencies in Zimbabwe, it’s not easy to pay for your DStv to Multichoice. If you don’t have USD in your hands in Zimbabwe and you don’t have relatives in South Africa who can make payment for you, you may go without your favourite entertainment. Not anymore. You can now simply pay in RTGS$ using the Techzim Market App.

To pay for your DStv in RTGS dollars follow these simple steps:
