Please note that when using your budget facility, if the value of any of your parcels is less than R300 then you will not qualify for budget payment.

Where can I buy a mimoney electronic voucher?
There are five ways of doing this:
You can buy mimoney by making an electronic account transfer (EFT) to mimoney. This can be done in the following way:
1) Access Internet/cellphone or telephone banking. Follow the normal setup of a beneficiary payment.
The details to be used are as follows:
- For Standard Bank users: access the "customer directory index" and mimoney will be listed as a beneficiary for you.
- Enter the value of the voucher you want to send.
- The Beneficiary reference is the mobile number of the recipient for the transfer.
- Print a proof of statement.
- For all other bank users: log onto your online account and follow the standard procedure of setting up a new beneficiary with the following information:
- Bank: Standard Bank - Johannesburg Branch
- Branch code: 000205 (There is no need for the branch code if you are paying from Standard Bank or ABSA.)
- Account Name: mimoney EFT Account
- Account Number: 009738258
2) Bank channel: go to any SA bank and ask the teller to set up a new beneficiary on your account following the same procedure as that of internet bankers. Print your proof of payment!
3) AutoPay users can purchase mimoney directly from the mimoney website!
4) Purchase mimoney at a self-service terminal at selected mimoney outlets. E.g. Ster Kinekor has kiosks set up within cinemas where you can purchase mimoney with debit cards. This is the quickest way
to purchase mimoney. Alike kiosks at other mimoney outlets will operate similarly.
5) Buy mimoney at selected mimoney till points with either cash or debit card. Such till points are set-up at Ster Kinekor cinemas and are assisted by sales agents on duty.
Can you use your mimoney immediately?
- A voucher purchased through an EFT payment:
Once the money has been received by mimoney (which may take up to two days depending on which bank the
purchaser is with) the voucher will be activated.
A SMS is sent to the cell number nominated by the buyer, which contains the voucher number (micode) issued.
- A voucher purchased at a participating sales agent: The sales agent will provide you with a voucher slip as proof of your mimoney purchase.
A SMS will be delivered to the recipient's cellphone with a unique micode (18 digit number) which can then be used to shop at kalahari.com.
Note: This option is effective from 27 December 2008.
