Electricity

Make life easier in your community by keeping your customers' lights on by selling electricity today. With a FLASH machine you can sell Electricity for Eskom and many other municipalities nationwide.

Prepaid electricity powers South African homes and businesses through prepaid meters. Electricity is priced per kilowatt-hour (kWh) and the price varies during the month based on how much electricity a customer uses.

Electricity vending can be done by:

Selling electricity for a customer for their specific meter number
Selling an eeziPower token that can be issued without a customer’s meter number and can be sold when a Municipality is experiencing technical issues.
Free Basic Electricity (FBE) – is a National Government initiative to address poverty by offering a limited amount of free electricity.

Remember:

Always make sure the meter number and amounts are correct before printing
Make sure the printing paper is inserted correctly
No transaction fees may be charged
Not everyone qualifies for Free Basic Electricity
Some municipalities will deduct arrears owing before issuing the token




What is eeziPower?

eeziPower is an electricity voucher that enables shop owners to sell electricity without a customer's meter number. This helps with faster transactions and bulk printing during busy times. You can also sell eeziPower when the municipalities are experiencing technical difficulties.

If your machine has no built-in printer please ensure that you have a FLASH printer plugged in.
Note – Selling electricity is area dependent and may not work in some areas.
Do not overcharge for electricity. Municipalities WILL disconnect machines that overcharge.

What is FBE?

FBE is FREE electricity, which is a government initiative to assist households. This amount of electricity is deemed sufficient to provide basic electricity services to selected meters. This amount of electricity is enough to provide basic water heating using a kettle, basic ironing, and power for a small television set and radio. Some municipalities restrict FBE to households that consume below 350-450 kWh of prepaid electricity per month only.

How do I get it?

By simply dialing *130*269# free call on your mobile phone.

When can I collect my FBE?

FBE is available on the 1st of every month and will be valid for one month only. Units will not accumulate to the next month (claim it or loose it). You can claim your FBE units by dialing *130*269# free call on your mobile phone.


What is prepaid airtime & data?

Sell prepaid Airtime or Data to customers to top up your their cell phones FLASH sells prepaid airtime and data for all the major networks (MTN, Vodacom, Cell C and Telkom), as well as a few of the smaller networks like Virgin Mobile, Neotel and WorldCall.

There are two ways you can sell airtime or data:

Voucher – The shop owner vends an airtime or data voucher without the consumer's number, the customer dials a string that is printed on the slip. The consumer will then enter the voucher pin from the traders slip to top up.
Direct Top-up (pinless) – the shop owner enters the customers cell number on the machine and tops up the customers mobile balance with the required amount. This is a direct top up to the customers phone.

National Lottery

What is the National Lottery?

National Lottery is a “game of chance” where a customer can guess the outcomes of a lucky draw and win money based on the amount of numbers they have guessed correctly.
Lotto draws take place every week on a Wednesday and Saturday.
Powerball draws take place every week on a Tuesday and Friday.

What are the benefits of selling National Lottery?

By selling Lottery tickets, traders expand their offering to customers. This means more convenience for customers because they do not have to visit more than one shop to complete their shopping and they will be more likely to visit your business more frequently.

More products available to sell
Make more profit
Create customer satisfaction and repeat customers
Create customer loyalty

Remember:

FLASH does not do Lotto pay outs (winners will be referred to retail stores for winnings below R5,000 and their local Ithuba office for larger wins).
Lotto slips are longer than other products, make sure that the printer has enough paper in it and that the till roll is inserted correctly.
The slip is fully printed when you see the barcode.
