Fiji Na­tional Univer­sity (FNU) has en­abled MPAiSA mobile pay­ment op­tion for its stu­dents across all cam­puses Fiji wide. The Act­ing Vice-Chan­cel­lor of FNU, Pro­fes­sor James Pounder said “We would like to of­fer our stu­dents greater con­ve­nience and flex­i­bil­ity to make their pay­ments from wher­ever and when­ever with­out the need to queue up at the cashier coun­ters. Ac­cess “on the go” through mobile phones pro­vides stu­dents with this 24x 7 con­ve­nient pay­ments ser­vice. “We are also mov­ing to­wards a “cash­less cam­pus” ini­tia­tive to re­duce the handling of cash on cam­pus. “This to en­sure the risks of car­ry­ing such large amounts of cash to stu­dents as well as staff is min­imised as they could be a tar­get for theft.

“Stu­dent fees can run into thou­sands of dol­lars de­pend­ing on the cour­ses and num­ber of units they un­der­take and pay­ing them elec­tron­i­cally sig­nif­i­cantly re­duces the risk.

For FNU, the less cash it han­dles, the bet­ter it is for the in­sti­tu­tion. With cam­puses spread across the coun­try, the M-PAiSA cash­less pay­ment op­tion brings about greater ef­fi­ciency and con­trol over FNU’s col­lec­tions and re­ceipts.

FNU will en­able the M-PAiSA QR code (on-counter) pay­ment op­tion as well as the re­mote pay­ment op­tion whereby stu­dents can use the M-PAiSA App to make the pay­ment of their fees at any time and from any­where.

The cam­pus will also en­able the M-PAiSA QR cash­less pay­ment op­tion at all restau­rants and cof­fee shop around the cam­pus to make it con­ve­nient for stu­dents.

Fur­ther­more, quite a few of the FNU stu­dents re­ceive the TSLB al­lowance di­rectly on their mobile through M-PAISA.

Ac­cess­ing al­lowance

These stu­dents will no longer need to cash out their al­lowance to make pay­ments to FNU as they will be able to make pay­ment di­rectly through M-PAiSA. Head of Voda­fone eCom­merce, Shailen­dra Prasad said, “For stu­dents, M-PAiSA of­fers a lot of ben­e­fits.

Firstly, there are no fees and charges for us­ing the M-PAiSA ser­vice to make pay­ments to FNU. “Stu­dents can also use M-PAiSA to pay their water and elec­tric­ity bills as well as top up their mobile phones with bonus top and data.”

All Voda­fone and Inkk mobile users can use the MPAiSA ser­vice sim­ply by down­load­ing the M-PAiSA App.
