Zimbabwe: Zimpost Launches E-Money Facility




ZimPost has launched a Post Money Centre and the digitalised money order service will enable users to send multi-currencies, with delivery notifications within a day.


The facility is available on all mobile networks and will facilitate the movement of pension, online payments, domestic and international remittances over the mobile phone.


Officiating the launch in Harare yesterday, Information Communication Technology, Postal and Courier Services Deputy Minister, Dingumuzi Phuthi, applauded ZimPost for taking a step into digitalisation.


"It took too long for you to embark on the digitalisation of the postal services, but because you did, we congratulate you.



"The journey that you are moving in, indicates to everyone that indeed, we are moving into the Smart Post Office era," he said.


Deputy Minister Phuthi acknowledged and appreciated the role the ZimPost is playing in complementing the Government's work in financial and digital inclusion, which is critical in the attainment of an empowered upper middle income economy by 2030.


Promoting financial inclusion is enunciated in the National Development Strategy 1 (NDS 1), which runs from this year to 2025.


Deputy Minister Phuthi said Vision 2030 would be achieved through the collective aspiration and determination of citizens.


ZimPost acting Post-Master General, Dr Isaac Muchokomori said the consumer shopping preferences have changed over time, mainly due to ICTs and the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic.


He said ZimPost had innovated on its Post Finance Services, digitalising them in order for them to be more accessible and convenient to the public.


"Top of the list to be digitalised is the Post Money Service, which has now been completely modernised from being paper-based, to electronic and now mobile-based," he said.


He said the establishment of the Post Money Centre, at the Greendale Post Office, was a clear testimony of their commitment to a total client services excellence.


ZimPost board chairperson, Mr Kainet Moyo, said their aim was to have a big physical and digital presence going forward.
