Solar Village uses Angaza's software technology to enable Pay-As-You-Go sales of the Battery Stick™. The software generates a voucher codes which are entered via a remote control to activate the Battery Stick for a period corresponding to the payment amount (i.e. 30 days for $5). If another payment is not made before the current activation timer runs out, the Battery Stick will automatically lock until another payment has been made.
This solution allows for provision of easy and flexible payment solutions that benefit both farmers and distributors. Farmers benefit by being able to pay for the Battery Stick™ in instalments corresponding to their cash flow. Distributors benefit by increasing sales to a larger customer base which otherwise would not have been able to purchase the Battery Stick™ due to large upfront cost.
