Buy Gas Using SMS
You can now buy petrol through a simple SMS-based voucher system.
A person buys a tank of petrol or diesel after registering on the Mukuru.com website.
Payment options include cheque, wire transfer, credit card or Pay Pal (an online payment system). Once the payment has cleared, a voucher (including a 10-digit code) is immediately sent via SMS and email to the recipient in Zimbabwe. A copy of the voucher is also sent via SMS and email to the buyer.
The recipient then takes the voucher, together with their ID book, to the designated petrol station in Harare to fill up their car.
