Vouchers good for one, three and six month subscriptions to ShowMax have gone on sale at selected Pick n Pay stores in South Africa. This development has the dual benefit of making it possible to give ShowMax subscriptions as a gift, and also enables those without a credit card to access the service.
ShowMax subscription vouchers have gone on sale at selected Pick n Pay stores in South Africa. Priced at R99, R297, and R594, these vouchers give one, three, or six months’ access to the ShowMax internet video streaming service with Africa’s largest catalogue of TV series and movies.
ShowMax gift vouchers add another payment method on top of the current options of using a credit card, PayPal, or via FNB’s eBucks Shop.
Importantly, because the vouchers can be purchased with cash, this opens up access to the service to people who don’t have or don’t wish to use a credit card.
“It’s been a race against time since we launched ShowMax back in August to get these gift vouchers into stores in time for the festive season, and I’m thrilled we made it. If you’ve got someone hard to buy for this has to be the perfect gift, not to mention also being a great stocking-filler,” said Chris Savides, the Head of Payments and Partnerships at ShowMax.
“South Africa isn’t the same as the US and or UK, and we’ve received the message loud and clear over the past few months that people would like payment options that don’t involve using a credit card. It’s one more step in making sure that ShowMax is tailored to the specific needs of South Africans.”
