Following the publication of a report revealing that Steward Bank has been directed to cease its Swipe Into EcoCash service with immediate effect. Econet Wireless has released a statement to assure customers that the service will remain operational.
Econet Wireless Zimbabwe Pvt Ltd, the parent company of EcoCash and Steward Bank, wishes to advise its customers and the transacting public that the Swipe into EcoCash service is available and there are no plans to discontinue it.
Contrary to some media reports suggesting otherwise, the company wishes to reiterate that the Swipe into EcoCash service is up and running, and available for use by all customers.
It’s not clear from the statement if the company intends to comply with the reported ZimSwitch and RBZ requirements to change some aspects of the implementation of the service.
