Over the past few months since i started using GoTV, subscription payment have often been made at an outlet where i have to pay a total of N1950 (One thousand, nine hundred and fifty Naira). Thankfully, the outlet wasn’t available this festive period so i had to resort to handling the case myself.
I was able to pay the GoTV subscription online and for even less with an hundred Naira difference. Since i was able to get this done easily and from the comfort of my home, i have decided to share with you how you can easily fix this without having to leave your home or office.
Paying / Re-activating GoTV Subscription online using MyPaga Service
There are different ways to which you can actually pay your GoTV subscription. You can choose to use QuickTeller, Zenith Bank, Stanbic IBTC, Paga, FCMB. In my case, i chose to use Paga hence, this guide will involve using myPaga.
==> Log into your mypaga account at www.mypaga.com. If you do not have an account, you can choose to register. It’s very easy and fast.
==> When logged into your account or when registration is complete, at the left side of your account dashboard, click on Pay Bills or Merchant.
==> When the Merchants page loads up, select click on the GoTV logo and you will be redirected to the GoTV payment page.
==> Under Smartcard number, enter your IUC Number. Under Product service, choose the plan you’d like to subscribe to and the amount will be automatically stated on the amount bar. Your names are automatically filled up based on the details used in creating the myPaga account. When down, simply click on Continue.
==> When details have been successfully retrieved from GoTV server, you will be provided information in regards your GoTV account name, last paid date, Next due date, Last paid amount and status. If everything looks good, click on Continue.
==> At this point, you can choose to pay using your outstanding balance available in your mypaga account (if any), you can also choose to pay using linked bank account, MasterCard, Visa and Verse. Choose your preferred funding source and click on Confirm. In my case, i used the Visa funding method which relates with my Visa Card.
==> At this point, you will be redirected to interswitch payment processor. If you’d rather not enter any login details and just input your card details, click on Select Card type and select the kind of card you use and intend using in paying the payment.
==> There is a N50 charge. Hence, if you choose the N1800 plan, N50 will automatically be added to the total bill amount. when done inputting your debit card details as indicated in the image above, click on Pay.
==> If you choose inputting your card details without logging into interswitch like i did, an OTP code will be sent to your phone in other to verify that you are actually the one initiating the payment and not someone using your card without your consent.
==> Input the OTP code in the OTP box as indicated in the image above and currently type in your mypaga password on the Password and confirm password boxes. When done, click on Submit.
==> If your card is properly funded with the required amount, your payment should be processed and you should get a successful message from mypaga as seen below:
There you have it. You have successfully paid your GoTV subscription from the comfort of your home or office using your phone, tablet or a computer. There is absolutely no need having to look for an outlet to pay your subscription every month.
How Can I be sure that my GoTV account has been successfully paid?
If the notification from myPaga doesn’t fully clarify that your payment has been received and your GoTV subscription has been paid, you can choose to log in your GoTV account online using their website to verify the last payment date and next payment date.
