www.payCity.co.za has been designed with the consumer in mind, and its goal is to provide consumers with a quick, safe, secure, but above all easy way to pay for local authority related bills.
View and pay local or national speeding fines
payCity.co.za allows customers (individuals and fleet proxies) to view their traffic infringement data, including speed, time, date and penalty. They will even email or SMS registered users when they notice they have a new fine. Alternatively, users can send an SMS to 39541, with their ID number, and payCity.co.za will return a summary of their outstanding fines.
They have links to the major Metros, such as JMPD and CoCT, as well as smaller municipalities, such as Stellenbosch, Paarl, Tzaneen, Mogale City, Emfuleni and Swellendam – even the Free State. Shortly, they will also have a link to eNatis, which will allow them to show and take payments countrywide.
Renew a Vehicle Licence Disc and have it hand delivered
With payCity customers can upload the necessary documents and pay by credit card, and they will arrange that their Vehicle Licence Disc gets renewed and hand couriered within five working days. When customers register, they even remind them when their next one is due.
Buying prepaid electricity via the web or cellular phone
Customers will be able to purchase prepaid electricity for their meter number once they have registered, and they will deliver their token to them on their monitor as well as via SMS, at no extra charge. Once registered, customers can just recharge via their cell phone and payCity will perform the transaction. Users simply send their password, cvv number and the amount to purchase to 41658, and payCity send their voucher to them. Please note, this service is only available in select metropolitans.
Forthcoming services that will further eliminate queuing include Local Rates and Taxes bills; TV licence renewal; retail bill payments (such as an Edgars account); medical bills not covered by the Medical Aid; and Telkom/Neotel bills.
