Please note Citiq Prepaid only dispenses electricity tokens for meters managed by us. We do not dispense tokens for Municipal or Eskom meters. The following options exist for purchasing tokens. Please be aware that the cost of the payment methods vary, and that EFT is by far the cheapest option.
SpeedPay is a quick, fast, safe and free way to pay on-line, using your own bank account.
You make an EFT using your 11 digit meter number as the reference to SpeedPay’s account with your bank. Tokens are then available within minutes by calling 087 354 5566.

If you bank with Nedbank, you can purchase your token directly from a Nedbank ATM. Simply follow the instructions on the ATM for making prepaid electricity purchases.
If you have a FLASH vendor in your area you can buy your tokens directly from them. They will need your meter number and will provide you with your token number on a printed slip.
Retail stores that support Cigicell payments are able to provide UniPin vouchers to purchase Citiq Prepaid tokens. UniPin vouchers require that you sms your meter & voucher number to the telephone number provided as per the instructions on the UniPin voucher. Please take care in doing this, since sms’ing the wrong meter number cannot be reversed.
