Zim Airtime


Zim Airtime is a plugin that gives Zimbabwean online publishers a secondary revenue stream. The plugin allows visitors to such websites to buy prepaid airtime and internet subscriptions for their mobile networks. The publisher earns a commission for airtime sales that originate from their website.

The publisher will contact Techzim to be on-boarded as a vendor so that they may begin to sell airtime on their website. Essentially, the plugin displays a form for website visitors who wish to buy airtime to fill in. The information gathered by this form is sent to techzim market airtime system where the buying request is processed. The customer will be sent a message on their mobile phone to confirm the transaction. Once that happens, the customer will receive the airtime and the publisher from which the sale originated will be credited with their commission.
