ZAMBIA: Zamtel, Yango sign payment deal

IN AN effort to promote digital payments, Yango and Zamtel have partnered to allow customers and subscribers to pay using mobile money.
The partnership will also benefit the partner drivers and passengers who are Zamtel subscribers as it will allow them to order data-free rides on Yango using Zamtel application while on Yango Pro, which is the driver application, and will be zero-rated.
Yango country manager Kabanda Chewe said in a statement yesterday that this collaboration offers additional benefits for both the customers and drivers.
“Customers will book Yango rides at no data charge by simply signing up with Zamtel while drivers will earn commission by receiving money using Zamtel Mobile Money and signing up as Zamtel Mobile Money agents.
This is in addition to discounted minutes and data for drivers.
“I’m excited at the announcement of this collaboration and Yango is excited to partner with local establishments such as Zamtel that have a strong Zambian representation.
