Dear Real Pay User

Over the course of 2016, the Real Pay team operated with a renewed focus on company values. Specifically the first value, Learning through constant innovation, gave rise to a host of new product- and system developments. Against this backdrop we are thrilled to announce that Real Pay Botswana, as preferred payments industry partner, officially launched Normal Debit Orders in November.

New product – Normal Debit Orders

The Real Pay development team and management are proud of this inter-banked product that will allow Users to collect from all banks via a dated service. Please contact the Gaborone office on 395 1945 or for more information.

Industry events

The in-country representatives continue to engage with relevant stakeholders on a variety of forums to keep abreast of the latest developments as well as playing an advisory role where input is required. This includes regular interactions with among others NBFIRA, BoB and the Bankers Association. 
In line with our community driven approach, Real Pay attended the Botswana Financial Inclusion Implementation workshop. This valuable session was spearheaded by Botswana’s Ministry of Finance and Development Planning and the Fin Mark Trust. The intended outcome of this workshop is enabling financial inclusion of all citizens whether they are employed or not.

Looking forward to 2017

We are excited about the prospects for 2017 and plan to maintain a strong presence at industry events including Tertiary Council conventions, Insurance Association golf day and Funeral Parlour Association events.
We will also be touring the country, once again, providing training and assistance where needed. Please make arrangements with us, should you have special requirements.

We would like to remind you of the following:

December salary dates
Keep in mind that many employers move pay dates earlier in December in order to accommodate employees going on leave. If you consulted with your clients and received permission to adjust collection dates and would like to move these transactions via the bulk editing function, please send an e-mail to with the necessary details.

It is of the utmost importance that all users and merchants have signed mandates for all transactions processed.

Please contact or your relationship manager should you have any queries.

The Real Pay Team
