Hi. So I tried to get through to econet call centre but it kept dropping. However I did get some info from the automated response that said to become an ecocash agent would require a minimum $1000 deposit before being activated. I want to run a small online business accepting eco-cash and am wondering if they can just provide merchant accounts where I can just receive payment?..I have no need to be a full fledged agent with all the bells and whistles.

Your help will be appreciated!

you don't need to be an agent to be a merchant.
This article here (an interview we did with the Econet Services CEO) explains more: http://www.techzim.co.zw/2012/10/ecocash-mobile-money-interview-with-econet-services-ceo/

Ok thanks...great article too. I must've somehow missed it.

I'll pop by econet tomorrow with my company papers etc and see if that'll do.
