How to Pay Dstv [Here are Few Options to use Now]

How do I pay DStv in South Africa?

There are several DStv payment options that you can choose from when making your DStv subscription payment, and one of which is through debit order. What this means is that you give DStv a standing order to deduct your subscription charge from your bank account every month. You can also use the Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) method to pay DStv. If you have an account with FNB, Nedbank, Standard Bank or Absa, you will be able to pay through the USSD code.

Other methods are using the QR code which you can find online and on your MultiChoice statement through your internet banking, the link that comes with the subscription reminder SMS which you get from them, or through credit card payment at any Agency or Service Centre. You can also pay at an Absa branch or via the ATM. The MultiChoice banking details are available at the bank for your use.

DStv online payment

Like others, DStv has made subscriptions easier for everyone who enjoys their service, and so, instead of subscribing through their agents or locating the nearest bank around to make a payment, you can do that online. With this, the stress, pain, and whatever hardships you go through before you subscribe are adequately taken care of. Also, South Africa’s big banks such as Nedbank, Capitec Bank, Standard Bank and FNB who have online and cellphone banking services for their customers have also made the monthly subscriptions easy.

With the DStv self service platform, making your monthly DStv payment has become a lot easier. More so, the exciting aspect of it is that not only can you pay for your subscription, you can also make payments for other people. Should you also be overseas, you can also pay (depending on the country that you operate from); all you have to do is to get the details of the person that you want to pay for and verify on their portal to ensure that you are paying for the right person.
