Yes you can indeed! Just make sure that your payments aren’t exactly the same amount when paying more than once within 5 days. This will ensure that your transactions are seamlessly processed.

You can contact your municipality directly; they’ll certainly be able to assist you in getting the arrears cleared from your account.
There are several error messages that can display on your meter. Here are explanations and some tips for a few of them:
(i) "SAD face" - Usually means it is just finger trouble in typing the token: Retry entering the token, making sure of each digit.
(ii) "DDDD" - Duplicate Token: The token has probably been entered and redeemed. Kindly use a new token.
(iii) "Error 30" - Technical Error on your meter: Try switching off your meter as well as your electricity mains and wait a few minutes. Turn them back on and retry the token. If this error 30 persists, you should contact your municipality who’ll need to send a technician to have a look at your meter.
The minimum transaction amount for any product through Prepaid24 is R10.
*FNB payments of less than R110 might experience clearance delays, so we suggest that you make your purchase amounts more than R110 if paying through FNB.
Unfortunately, we are not able to reverse your token.
Prepaid electricity tokens are issued per meter number, and once they’ve been issued on a specific meter number, they can only be redeemed on that meter. However, even though Prepaid24 cannot reverse your token, you can contact your municipality who may be able to assist you if you haven’t yet redeemed the token.
You can still purchase through Prepaid24!
All you need to do is make your EFT into our ABSA Bank account and have a PDF Proof of Payment sent to email@example.com. Your tokens will then best sent to you via SMS and email within minutes after making your payment!
Don’t worry! This happens all the time – your money is NOT lost!
