Namibia, 22nd November 2022: DPO Group (DPO) has partnered with The University of Namibia (UNAM) to make school fee payments easier. UNAM is a multi-campus public research university in Namibia, as well as the largest university in the country.
By integrating DPO payment page to their website, UNAM now allows new and continuing students, parents, guardians, and sponsors to pay their application or tuition fees from anywhere in the country using a credit or a debit card.
DPO Namibia’s Country Manager, Clifford Ganaseb said: “It is our mission to make payments easy by providing a secure platform for all businesses and institutions. Therefore, we are proud to be helping UNAM collect tuition and application fees from their website. With this new partnership, we are not only providing payment solutions for the largest university in the country, but we are also enabling the ambitions and potential of students across Namibia who now have better access to apply to the university and to pay for their tuition fees.”
UNAM’s System Analyst and Programmer, Richard Chambula said: “In partnership with DPO, we have not only streamlined the school and application fees collection process, but also simplified reconciliation. Almost 500 new transactions have been made since we integrated DPO to our website 5 months ago, indicating that our students are adopting this new payment method.”
As the leader in online collection of school payments, DPO continues offering institutions and students the technology and support to make and receive online payments while driving financial inclusion and economic development to Africa.
