What is iK Prepaid?

iK Prepaid gives you the power to sell airtime, data, electricity vouchers, prepaid vouchers, and other digital products using your iKhokha card machine or your iKhokha app.

Why sell airtime, prepaid or digital products?

The more products you can sell in your shop, the more profit you can make!

Did you know? We give you money back every time you sell airtime, a prepaid voucher, or another digital product using your iKhokha card machine or your iKhokha app!

More customers will walk into your shop and buy products from you.

Your shop will look more popular. More people will notice it.

More people will talk about your shop. Which will bring more people to your shop.
