Pay Your DStv Subscription In RTGS Dollars


With the current confusion around currencies in Zimbabwe, it’s not easy to pay for your DStvsubscriptions to Multichoice. If you don’t have US Dollars in your hands in Zimbabwe or you don’t have relatives in South Africa who can make payments for you (for South African registered accounts), you will miss out on all those engaging programmes on DStv. But not anymore, you can now simply pay in RTGS Dollars right here on Techzim.

How do you pay for your subscription on RTGS Dollars?

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

  • Visit or click the following link:
  • Select the package you want
  • Enter the SmartCard number for your DStv (SmartCard number not account number)
  • Enter the surname of the DStv Account Holder
  • Enter your WhatsApp number so we can notify you when your DStv is now online
  • ZIPIT the amount for your selected bouquet to the Techzim account given
  • Upload a screenshot of the ZIPIT proof of payment
  • Click Buy
  • After verifying your transaction, we will credit your account at the times given below and notify you via WhatsApp.
