Utility payment platform and app, BuyPower.ng has launched a new payment feature which allows users to borrow money to pay their electricity bills online (via the BuyPower.ng website) or through their mobile app (Google Play Store or App store). The new ‘pay with a kwikmoney loan’ feature aims to improve access to credit for current and potential users of the platform.
BuyPower.ng let users pay electricity bills for both prepaid and postpaid meters. While prepaid meters get value in the form of tokens, which are converted to units, postpaid meters get receipts which can be tendered anywhere it is requested.
Currently, BuyPower.ng offers a variety of payment options for their customers including payment by card, bank transfers, instant transfers, USSD code and now, a loan option. This variety offered by the platform is only one of the reasons it is the best go-to platform when it comes to utility payments.
Speaking on the new payment option, CEO and co-founder, Ojima Benjamin Ufaruna said that, “At BuyPower, we do not take customer satisfaction for granted. In fact, all we aim to do is continue to groom happy customers. Hence, this partnership with kwikmoney to allow users to borrow to pay their bills is one that is very important.”
“While access to credit by consumers is a very big issue, I strongly believe that partnerships like this would improve the status quo and expose more people to loans. BuyPower.ng is the first utility payment platform to come up with this and we have plans to keep innovating and playing around potential solutions for our large base of customers.”
The new ‘pay with a kwikmoney loan’ option is available on the BuyPower checkout page and shows up to eligible customers. And like other payment methods available, offers a seamless experience for users.
Other noticeable features on BuyPower.ng includes; Meter Consumption History, Reminders, Payment with instant transfers, an in-app wallet and more. Truly, they are bringing convenience to the doorsteps of households in Nigeria.
