As already said, backing 2020 ZIMSWITCH, the providers of ZIPIT were promoted to the status of the national payments gateway. This means that pretty much any ZWL wallet or bank account can send and receive ZIPIT. You can send and receive money from bank accounts, OneMoney, Telecash, Ecocash and other lesser-known wallets using ZIPIT. The method of payment is often used by individuals who want their funds to reflect immediately in their recipient’s account. RTGS, from which Zimbabwe’s electronic currency gets its name, is often manually processed and a bit slower even though it has even higher limits.

So ZIMSWITCH reviewing limits upwards will be warmly received as some people who use the service for their informal businesses are likely to have started exceeding the old limits.
