Getting Started with iK Prepaid

It's easy! You only need:

  1. An iKhokha card machine (if you need to sell printed vouchers) or the iKhokha app (if you only want to sell SMS vouchers)
  2. Cash or a Bank account (to buy airtime, prepaid vouchers or digital products from us)


How does it work?

📌 Step 1 - Get an iKhokha card machine or the iKhokha app

If you need to sell printed vouchers, you need an iKhokha card machine with printer:

If you only need to send vouchers by SMS:


📌 Step 2 - Top-up your prepaid balance

This is the balance of money that you use to buy airtime, prepaid vouchers and digital products from us.

You can top-up your prepaid balance with cash at an ABSA ATM, or with an EFT from your bank account.
