- StarTimes, Remita Collaborate on Subscription Payment
StarTimes Nigeria has introduced Remita, a local electronic payment solution, to its customers as the easier, faster and more convenient way to pay for their Pay TV subscriptions.
With the development, StarTimes customers can now make daily subscriptions for as low as N60, using their debit and credit cards.
In a statement, StarTImes said, “They can also pay through the Internet Banking platform of their banks; www.remita.net; at any commercial bank branch; or any of more than 500 microfinance bank branches nationwide.
It added, “To further ensure that they do not miss a moment of the entertainment available on StarTimes, subscribers can also automate subscription payment by setting up a Standing Order on Remita. This means they do not need to manually make payments, as the Remita Standing Order ensures their pay TV subscription is automatically renewed at a fixed day of the month and guarantees their service is never interrupted.”
The Chief Operating Officer of StarTimes, Tunde Aina, was quoted as saying, “Our aim is to continue to provide our subscribers with easier ways to access non-stop entertainment on our digital terrestrial and satellite television stations. We do not want them to have any barrier – least of all, subscription renewal. This has informed our partnership with Remita.
“The SMS and email notifications sent by StarTimes to customers reminding them of their subscription renewal will now contain a link to make payments. Once the customer clicks the link, they are taken to a page where their full subscription details have been automatically captured and displayed.”
