In a continued strive for better customer service AccessBank Tanzania has progressively improved its services.

One of our newest services being offered on the AccessMobile banking platform is the use of AccessMobile to top-up the Selcom Card as well as pay for goods services using SelcomPay.

 

Stating on the improvement of the services which are provided free to the customers, the Chief Business Development Officer Mr. Andrea Ottina said, '' We have upgraded our services which will enable AccessMobile users to make various payments. Our customers can now pay their taxes via AccessMobile or transfer their money from their AccessBank accounts via AccessMobile to their SelcomCard to make various payments for products and services (e.g. purchases at supermarkets, shops, restaurants or if it’s just to go watch a football game at the National Stadium.)

 

Mr. Ottina also added that through AccessMobile our customers can make payments at any place that accepts or is a SelcomPay point. In addition to these services, our AccessMobile customers can also pay for other utilities like Precision Air plane tickets, StarTimes Subscription, NHC rent, TANESCO Postpaid bills, PPF and PSPF contributions and many more. All these great services at the fingertips of your mobile phone.
