    Change from Online Shopping

    This is funny and sad, just had an online order for R175.
    Then we get an email asking that we give the change when they pickup as the ATM machine they used to deposit cash didn't give change.
    Only stress when you can change the outcome!

    She opted for collection and we gave her R25 back when she collected. Not to sure how you would do this if we couriered the goods.

    Mobile airtime top-up perhaps? It seems to be the go-to method of transferring funds for the unbanked nowadays.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Provided of course that the money was actually in the bank first?
