EcoCash has made it possible for users on the platform to request money from other users. In the notice, EcoCash, a mobile money transfer facility run by Econet Wireless Zimbabwe, said, “FINALLY, You can do the send money process for them. Request money directly from their wallet today!

• Select Option 1 — Create Request
• Enter Amount,

Those being requested to send money will receive a message which says:

EcoCash recently increased its transaction limits to enable its customers to transact fairly huge amounts amid rising inflation.
