Econet’s famed, multi-bundle recharge pin dubbed Sk’haftin has been made available for purchase on the *100# menu. Customers are now able to enjoy the benefits of Sk’haftin without having to look for a physical Sk’haftin recharge voucher.
‘Mamophethe Moletsane, Econet’s Assistant Product Manager: Voice, explained that the decision was reached upon realizing that the distribution of Sk’haftin physical vouchers does not reach each and every customer due to the country’s topography.
Moletsane said that they found it unfair for Econet customers living in the remotest areas and those whose villages are situated within the gorges of this mountainous country. She said that these customers have to travel long distances just to get Sk’haftin.
“We want to ensure Sk’haftin’ availability at the customers’ arms reach of desire” said Moletsane “Each and every customer across the country should be able to enjoy Sk’haftin at any time of the day without limitations” she added
Econet introduced Sk’haftin, a multi-feature bundle physical voucher to the Lesotho market during the month of October 2017 to cater for all customers’ communications needs. The name is derived from a daily lunch box with different types of food in it. The voucher offers affordability to the customer with its unique value for money as it combines voice, data and SMSes bundles. The bundles are automatically loaded upon recharge with the voucher and they are valid for one day only which means that they should be consumed on the day of recharge.
“The introduction of Sk’haftin bundle came upon realizing that customers buy airtime and convert it to voice, data and SMS bundles.” said Moletsane. The ability to purchase the same four bundles on *100# means that the product will be available to all Econet customers at any time of the day.
Sk’haftin bundle offers 50 Econet-to-Econet minutes, 5 local minutes, 50 local SMSes and 50MB data. The minutes are charged on full per second and all bundles expire on the day of recharge. The customer can buy as many Sk’haftin bundles as they need for the day.
Customers can also buy Sk’haftin bundles for friends and family members on the same *100# platform.
