City’s New Payment Platform Grows Significantly

The City of Ekurhuleni’s upgraded service payment website, Siyakhokha, has seen 79 165 new customers register on the platform.

The service payment platform hit the 79 165 mark on 21 August, two months after its launch in July 2019.

Customers who were on the old website are urged to re-register to view, manage and pay their municipal accounts conveniently.

To date, the new website has been visited by 334 718 people and the number of linked municipal accounts is 124 670. The amount processed on the Siyakhokha website since it was launched is R51 204 835.

The platform was upgraded from the old website. The upgrades were necessitated by the need to align the platform with the digital city Ekurhuleni aspire to be, and will ultimately result in a service payment platform that is user-friendly and easily accessible.
