             Payway vending machine

Edited: September 15 2018

Six years later, PayWay, has made strides with their service incorporating more services that include National Social Security Fund, Utilities, School fees, taxes and oh yes, you can also pay for some of your concert tickets using the service. As you have noticed, the above pic has some companies that have either closed shop or changed name like Orange Internet which is now Africell and of course, Warid that was absorbed by Airtel.

New Internet service providers have since joined on board like Tangerine, Smile, Roke Telecom and Smile Uganda. Airtime cards having been phased out in most city centres, PayWay has come in very handy in addressing that gap.

To become an agent, you must have a registered company, national ID and at least $550 that includes the cost of the Point of Sale (POS) machine and a bluetooth printer, you must also have an Android phone4.0 plus to be able to operate without any hitches.

You also need a minimum of at least 500k that will be required as your float. PayWay Uganda is located in Kibuli, plot No. 2019 Mbogo road next to Total Kibuli.

These are PayWay contacts here in Uganda;

  • Tel: 0800 203020.
  • E-mail
  • WhatsApp: +256792240818.

===Earlier Version===

Payway is a vending machine that can be found at supermarkets and are an ideal way of loading internet airtime for Orange network and airtime for all carriers let alone paying for DSTV, Startimes and Gotv.

It saves a lot of time for orange internet bearing in mind that if you had to buy scratch cards and you are lucky to get large denominations, you would have to enter one by one depending on what plan your on.

The payway vending machine, which does not give change or accept coins will load your airtime on the orange modem instantly in a few easy steps which takes the same time you would use on a scratch card but remember if you had Shs85,000 to load, then that will be at least a 50,000 card and a 20k, 10k card plus 5k to load.

The machine sends you an instant message on your phone to let you know that your transaction was successful on top of an instant receipt. There is a toll free number just in case you are stuck.

So if you are the type who was looking for an alternative around using many cards, then you could try the payway vending machine. You can also pay for water bills, buy an airticket with Air Uganda.

THE WORST EXPERIENCE I HAD WITH PAYWAY. On 1st Feb 2015. I needed Orange airtime worth Shs. 20,000. The nearest PAYWAY machine was out of electronic airtime and it therefore issued me an airtime code which I COMFORTABLY keyed onto my phone. The response I got from Orange was that the airtime had been used by someone else! I called PayWay's customer care and a 'Ritah' advised me that my problem was due to a network failure and would be resolved the next day (Monday) at 9am. At 9am I promptly called Payway and all I got as feedback was that they would call me back. The day ended with either PayWay not picking my call or even the customer service assistant hanging up the moment I explained my 'PROBLEM'.

@Patel, anyone can be a Payway vendor provided you pay a small fee, in fact for the small machine, you should not pay more than 500k, the last I checked, It was 300k. Simply go to their offices behind the American Embassy in Nsambya.
