Why send to a Meikles MyCash card?
As a new cashless method to store and transfer funds locally, Meikles MyCash enables recipients to carry out a wide range of financial activity. Meikles MyCash card users can carry out person to person payments, bill payments, and transfer to/from bank accounts. They can also use their card at any Zimswitch POS swipe machine (including at any TM Pick n Pay store) and make cash withdrawals from ATM machines.
When recipients first register for free at any participating TM Pick n Pay location, they will receive a physical card that can be used to access the available services. The card will be linked to their mobile phone number so they can download the Meikles ‘MyCash’ app or access a USSD service menu by dialling *212#.
