Tired of standing the long Mukuru queues and not getting cash?

  1. Have your relative/customer/friend/sponsor/whoever in the diaspora send you money
  2. Go to CABS and apply for a textacash account and you will get a ZIMSWITCH enabled card instantly
  3. Your money will be transferred into the ZIMSWITCH enabled card of your textacash
  4. You can go shopping anywhere in Zimbabwe with your card.

Chances are someone is going to comment this is not a solution as they need the hard cash, but what do you need the hard cash for? Buy grocery? Pay school fees? Buy magetsi(electricity vouchers)? Pay bills? You can do all that using your money in the card.


Alternatively I just learnt that someone can send you money directly into your Ecocash wallet. From there you can head straight to OK and buy using Ecocash or transfer your landlord money via Ecocash.
