Borrow to pay your Electricity Bills: One step forward

Hey guys,

Before we begin, here’s a quick question for us all: Have you been in situations where you did not have enough money to pay your bills? Or have you gone broke just after paying your bills? Well, that does not have to be the case anymore as we have found a perfect solution for you.

In partnership with kwikmoney, we have included a new ‘pay with kwikmoney’ payment option on the platform. kwikmoney is a consumer lending service focused on providing swift and secure access to credit at the click of a button, no questions asked, no documentation needed.

The new ‘pay with kwikmoney’ feature on is an option that allows our users to buy electricity with a loan from kwikmoney at that particular moment. Yes! You heard that right. You can request a loan to pay your electricity bill at that moment, and repay the borrowed amount + interest in 14 days.

This is huge for us because, as a company, we have always been very big on customer satisfaction and from previous surveys, this is one of the many features gotten from customer feedback. [Thank you guys, for always giving us quality feedback and making us better at what we do.]

Explore BuyPower new App Features and more

For a few months now, we have dedicated resources to building and upgrading the BuyPower mobile application. This was deliberate and aimed at giving our customers the best experience they can ever ask for while on our platform.

We have added more features that’s meant to optimize your experience and be in charge of your electricity consumption and payments. Our new app is meant to further bring convenience to your doorstep and we’re glad to see the already great reviews. You can drop your own lovely reviews here.

What are the new features?

Consumption chart
One important problem we figured a lot of you faced is keeping track of how much electricity you consume either per week, month, quarter or year. We understand how pertinent it is for us all to track this and make sure that we didn’t go overboard at any point, or when we did, try to make amends going forward. It could help us save and budget.

We have added a consumption chart to the updated BuyPower app and we expect it to be of extreme value to our users. The chart shows how much you spent on electricity usage over a period of time. That’s valid information, you know.

Do you have maybe a weekly or monthly budget for electricity bills? Or you have decided to pay any amount of money, no matter how little, for electricity at a given time. If that is you, then you need to pay more attention to this.

With reminders, you can set a date and time for the BuyPower app to remind you to purchase electricity. You see, we are more than just pay electricity online. We want to allow you handle your utility payment like a boss.

What next?

I’m sure you’re excited already, yes?
