As further evidence of its commitment to pushing the boundaries of digital payments and creating solutions that positively impact consumers, fast rising digital distribution and Solutions Company, Capricorn Digital Limited, has scaled up the electricity bill payments offering on its payment platform.
The Baxi Box, which is the platform through which payments are made, now includes Abuja Electricity Distribution Company and Enugu Electricity Distribution Company.
This will afford residents of Abia, Anambra, Enugu, Ebonyi, Imo, Kogi, FCT, Nasarawa and Niger States the opportunity to pay their electricity bills from the comfort of their homes and offices or at any agent location.
Capricorn Digital Limited is one of the largest retail focused power payments aggregator in Nigeria with partnerships with Ikeja, Eko, Port Harcourt, Ibadan and Kano Electricity Distribution Companies. The company has a strong agent and retail presence in all 36 States of the country including the FCT.
The Chief Operating Officer, Sabastine Enechi while speaking at an event recently mentioned that the decision to include AEDC and EEDC on the platform was motivated by the company’s vision to provide a faster, easier and more convenient payment alternative for Nigerians.
He added that plans were underway to enlist the remaining three electricity distribution companies before the end of first quarter of 2018.
According to Enechi, “Electricity without a doubt plays an essential part in the daily lives of most Nigerians and we are very excited at being able to create easier and more convenient ways for people to pay their electricity bills and top up their prepaid electricity meters.
“Accountability and ease of payment are two of the most important offerings on the Baxi Box and these have encouraged a lot of Nigerians to get on board.
More importantly, we are very thrilled that the offering has been of immense value to the distribution companies, essentially because our extended network of agents have proven to be a viable solution to their challenge of inadequate collection points.
It has been a really exciting journey so far and we believe that we can achieve more success with the latest additions.”
