More Details on the Service

Why is the SMS payment link redirecting to the PayU and not the DStv website?

PayU is the payment gateway service provider that MultiChoice will be using for this payment solution. PayU will facilitate payments between DStv customers and MultiChoice.

At the moment, only credit cards can be used. We will let you know when we introduce other payment methods on this application.

Can any amount be paid?

A minimum amount of R20 will be accepted. In order for services to be reconnected or to prevent a disconnection, the full outstanding balance including a R50 reconnection (if applicable) should be paid. The maximum amount cannot be more than the quoted overdue amount.

Can BoxOffice accounts be paid using the DStv Touch mobi payment application?

After making a payment, how soon will the DStv services be reconnected?

Providing the full amount due is paid, services will be automatically reconnected within an hour after making payment. Please note that payments made after 9pm will only reflect the following day.
