A leading African digital payments group, DPO has partnered with The University of Namibia (UNAM) to make school fee payments easier.
The multi-campus public research university in Namibia, as well as the largest university in the country, has integrated the DPO payment page into its website.
Now, new and continuing students, parents, guardians and sponsors can pay their application or tuition fees from anywhere in the country using a credit or a debit card.
DPO Namibia’s Country Manager, Clifford Ganaseb said the platform is secure for institutions and businesses, making payments easier.
“We are proud to be helping UNAM collect tuition and application fees from their website. With this new partnership, we are not only providing payment solutions for the largest university in the country, but we are also enabling the ambitions and potential of students across Namibia who now have better access to apply to the university and to pay for their tuition fees,” said Mr Ganaseb.
UNAM’s System Analyst and Programmer, Richard Chambula said the new system has not only streamlined the school and application fees collection process but also simplified reconciliation.
“Almost 500 new transactions have been made since we integrated DPO to our website 5 months ago, indicating that our students are adopting this new payment method,” Mr Chambula said.
