Vending Management FAQ

What is Outsourced-Managed?

Outsourced-management of prepaid meters is the first choice for landlords and property managers who do not want to be hands-on in the revenue collection management process. With outsourced-managed method all user support is provided by www.PrepaidMeters.co.za.

Tenants and meter users pay funds for utilities via retail outlets integrated to prepayment system, such as: ABSA, ATM, EFT, credit card online, cell phone banking, selected Engen, Zenex, Caltex, Sasol Delight, BP Express, Shell Select, SPAR, Total, Caltex, Kwikspar, Seven Eleven shops and many other stores vending UniPin Vouchers.

Our integration to the payment channels will allocate payments made at any of the outlets automatically. The payments are then in turn reconciled and allocated to the landlord or property manager primary account and then paid out after deduction of the outsource fee. The payouts are processed on the last working day of every month. The body corporate, managing agent or landlord pays the primary supply with the funds collected from the prepaid system.

In the outsourced method the landlord or property manager has UNLIMITED access to the Prepaid Meter Utility Management System. The only functionality restricted is ‘Adding Credit’ to ensure accuracy, transparency and avoid any duplication. Using the Internet or WAP, the landlord has any-time-anywhere access and can generate any number of reports and management tasks 24/7/365.

Outsourced-managed two step process:

  • User purchases from outlets.
  • User Generates Token for the required utility.
