In one of my posts, I shared how to make DSTV payment online at quickteller.com. Today, I am sharing with you, how you can pay for your DSTV bills or renew your DSTV subscriptions using Paga payment services. Don’t know what Paga is? Well, it is a free money transfer service that allows you to make payments with an internet-enabled device, any mobile phone or through a Paga agent.
Now with Paga you can sit in your living room and pay your DStv subscription anywhere, anytime and see your service turn back on real-time. All DStv subscriptions paid on Paga are credited in real-time with service restored immediately.
How To Get Started
==> Sign up for paga account
==> Log in to mypaga.com
==> Click on “deposit cash” to fund your account with your Nigerian ATM cards.
==> After you might have funded your account, click “bill pay“
==> Click on “DSTV” from the list of merchants displayed
==> Select the DSTV bouquet you want to pay for in the service box
==> Enter your DSTV smartcard number in the space provided and click GO
==> You will see a page with your customer information. Use this to confirm if the smartcard is yours
==> If correct, enter your Paga secret PIN in the box and click GO
==> If successful, you will see the confirmation with your transaction ID.
==> Wait for some minutes for your DSTV channels to be restored (If your subscription expired before making the payment)
If your channels fail to come up after few minutes, you can follow the steps below:
== > Tune your dstv decoder to Africa Magic channel
== > Dial 01 2703232 (Multichoice contact number) on your phone (preferably the phone number you entered when making your payment)
== > Listen to the voice prompt and press 1 (to fix the dstv error E16)
== > You will be asked to enter the first ten digits of your dstv smart card number.
== > Enter it, followed by the # key.
Your channels will be restored as soon as possible.
You can log in to your Paga account to check your transaction history anytime, anywhere.
I hope this helps.
