That sucks. I use the Powertime iPhone app. And it is one of the few places I can buy electricity from my distributor (Power Measurement and Distribution). The only other places that sell their electricity is BP in Greenpoint and Pick 'n Pay in Gardens. Non of the SMS or online providers offer their power :-(
I would never save my Credit card details on a website. I rather enter it everytime I make a purchase. I think it is illegal to store somebody's CC details, may be wrong though.I bought electricity through Syntell's website for years. They would send an email with transaction details and an SMS with the voucher number for every purchase.
Now I have been forced to use ibuy.co.za (RMT)'s inferior website, they do not send an email or SMS confirmations and now I have to write down or print out the voucher number and then enter it into the meter, with Syntell I could just read the voucher number from the SMS.
Another problem I have with ibuy.co.za is you can enter your credit card details once when joining the site. You are not allowed to change them online, for example when your card expires and you are issued a new one, 'for security reasons'.
its just a way to fuel corruption by giving those tenders to their families & friends......the usual story.....
Check out Prepaid24's site. They can vend prepaid electricity online for Cape Town, and have a solution via EFT. No credit cards....I can recomend them, got my previous recharge in less than 5 minutes
