5.1. VENDING ACCESS
All meters vending provided on PrePaidMeters.net for self-management vending method carry a monthly fee per meter per month for unlimited amounts of credits and tokens. This service fee is paid via debit order monthly, quarterly or bi-annually.
Should any debit order fail the customer is liable for any costs involved in collecting the amounts due including but not limited to any penalty fees levied by the bank for failed debit orders.
Meters will only be enabled on the vending system once online registration is complete, the customer registration form has been faxed or emailed back together with copy of South African ID and last month’s electricity and/or water bill for the property where the sub-meter/s are installed.
Outsourced Managed Meters is a different option to self-managed meters. This service carries a basic service fee from the date of meters registration or a percentage of gross revenue collected, whichever is greater. Correct forms must be signed for this service to be enabled. Should tenants deposit funds into our meter control account this shall be seen as acceptance of terms of Outsource Meter management even if contracts and forms have not been returned to our offices in a timely manner. Should deposits be made by tenant without the forms completed by the landlord, management fees and terms are seen as accepted by landlord from date of which first deposit has been made by a tenant. Outsource Managed method carries the basic fee per meter per month regardless of whether or not the meter vended in that month.
5.1.1. All Outsource Managed collections run from the 26th to the 25th of the following month. All Outsourced Managed collections are paid out to registered meters owner on the last working day of each month via NetCash payment system.
5.2. DISCONNECTING & RECONNECTING METERS ON THE VENDING SYSTEM
If you require disconnection of a meter/s which is commonly known as “Disable-No-Fees” function, from the vending system will have to re-register the meter/s should you wish to re-connect the meter/s to the vending system. This carries a cost of R150 per meter inclusive of VAT. Should you disconnect a meter/s and monthly service fees have been paid there will be no refund on those fees.
There will be no refund on service fees charged per meter per month for self-managed meters. Take the above into consideration together with the R150 fee per meter for reconnection and re-registration of your meter onto the system before you request disconnection.
If you wish to request disconnection your meter you need to write to: support AT prepaidmeters.co.za or Accounts AT prepaidmeters.co.za. You need to include all your identifying details used on initial registration and the meter number which you wish to disconnect.
No meter/s will be disconnected without proper and satisfactory identification of the registered meter owner sent to the correct email address as above stated.
5.3. DISABLING and ENABLING VENDING
You can request to DISABLE or ENABLE vending for meters that are already registered on the system. This is free of charge. Please understand that if you DISABLE vending this will continue to charge you the costs per meter per month but the meter will not vend tokens until you re-enable vending to the meter/s.
If you wish to DISABLE or RE-ENABLE vending please write to support AT prepaidmeters.co.za to request this. You need to include in your email all your identifying details used on initial registration and the meter number which you wish to DISABLE or ENABLE VENDING.
If your meter is an STS meter or working in STS mode; the meter will continue to work until such time as the last token of electricity or water is consumed, thereafter it will disallow any further tokens to be entered.
5.4. PROVISION FOR EMERGENCY TOKENS FOR METER USERS/CONSUMERS
Under the Self-Management vending method; meter owners, landlords and managers including resellers and reseller partners have various rights to use the Vending system to vend tokens to meter users and tenants as these are provided from time to time. Should meter users contact us via PrePaidMeters.co.za to get tokens in the absence of the landlord or meter manager/s for any reason whatsoever, we reserve the right to vend electricity tokens to the meter user upon payment for such tokens in our meters management account. Should this occur the landlord is liable for a minimum of R25 per transaction or 12% of the collected amounts which ever greater for any tokens vended in the absence of the landlord and/or meter manager whomever that may be.
All such amounts collected and vended to the meter will be paid out to the registered landlord only. The payment will be total collected minus fees as described above. The payment will only be done as to our outsourced management processes and only upon receipt of completed Revenue Collection form. This form can be obtained from our accounts department.
For landlords that are not at all times available to dispense credits we recommend to choose or move to Outsource Managed vending method.

This document is published for customers to understand how to get the best service from our company, while helping us give you products and services that meet your satisfaction.
This document is not the Terms and Conditions of the website, if you wish to read the Terms and Conditions you may read them here: Terms and Condition of www.PrepaidMeters.co.za
While we value all customers equally and we always try to satisfy our customers’ requirements, sometimes dissatisfaction does happen. In the real world no matter how hard one tries to make everything perfect, things are bound sometimes to go wrong.
Below you will find how we address issues that you may find not satisfactory and direct you to resolution if you have issues related to our services.
Purchasing Prepaid Meters:
Please make sure you read our Terms and Conditions of purchase and make sure you are happy with them. If you have any questions, please make sure you ask before you purchase. These same terms will also be in your Order Confirmation Email when you have confirmed your purchase. If you have any issues purchasing please call our sales department or email SALES AT prepaidmeters.co.za.
Registering Prepaid Meters:
Once you have purchased one or more meters, our accounts department will require you to register the meters. Upon receiving your proof of payment or successful credit card transaction they will issue you with meter numbers so you can proceed with registration. Registration must be completed prior to delivery of meters for security reasons. This process is strictly adhered to, and your meter/s will only be delivered to you once the registration is complete.
The registration instructions will follow immediately after you have completed your purchase and paid for the meter/s. This email is automated. Should you not receive it for whatever reason, please check your junk mail, etc., otherwise just call our support or accounts department and they will help you register the meter/s and give you all the guidance you need.
We will complete your registration within 16 working hours from the time you submitted all the required documentation. The total time or days it takes to complete your registration is dependent on how quickly you send us your documentation.
Once your registration is complete, you will receive an email to this effect.
Registrations are done Monday to Friday from 08:00 to 17:00 (no weekends or public holidays). Please make sure that your registration is completed at least 76 hours in advance of your planned installation.
Depending on stock availability, you will receive your meters within 24 to 48 yours from registration completion. If you are on a plot this may take longer. You are welcome to change your delivery address to another one that is in the closest city or town (if your meters haven’t left already). If you have any issues with delivery, please call our accounts department or write to ACCOUNTS AT prepaidmeters.co.za
Installation of Prepaid Meters:
If you purchased installation from us and paid for the installation, this will be coordinated with you only upon registration completion. The reason for this is very simple: if the meters are not yet registered to our system, they will not be able to have credit tokens vended for them and the meters will not work when they are installed. To avoid any dissatisfaction on the meter user, we only book installation upon registration completion and payment for the installation.
Prepaid Meters Vending (Electricity & Water):
Once the meter is installed you will have already received vending instructions. You have already received Owner/Manger Manual and Tenant Manual at time of registration. This is an automated process. If for whatever reason you have not received this email please email SUPPORT AT prepaidmeters.co.za
If you chose the Outsource Managed method each meter will also have a PocketMedia instructional manual in each meter box. Please ensure that these reach the meter user.
Our vending services are dependent on Banks, Credit Card Merchant Services and Retail Outlets, we always do our utmost best to help with any vending issues instantly. However, in some cases, being dependant on the retail channel, this may take a few hour for resolution turn around. That said we have 92.8% uptime on vending channels. Therefore, if you do encounter problems, please just call our support lines immediately, they are opened from 08:00 to 22:00 Monday to Saturday. On Sunday and Public Holidays they are monitoring for any support voice messages left on the system and they will call you back to help if assistance is needed. It is always recommended that you do not leave your meter to run down to zero credit, it is good practice to make sure that you have a spare UniPIN voucher that you have not redeemed just in case of emergency. This is best practice with all meters, municipal and sub-meters.
How best to voice your dissatisfaction:
If you find something dissatisfactory, please make sure you write to us about it. You can complain to each department, they will escalate complaints if need be. You can also make use of our Comments, Compliments and Complaints form. Should you still have a problem that has not found resolution please write to MANAGER AT PREPAIDMETERS.CO.ZA, this email should be your last resort as it will reach executive management. Should you write to this email, please give at least 76 hours for reply, as executive management will perform an inquiry on the case before they come back to you with solutions and full responses to your concerns.
That said; please do respect our processes and the time it involves to get these completed. Our processes have evolved for almost 10 years from extensive experience. These processes are there to ensure that the service you receive once the meter is registered is to your satisfaction and all vending is running smoothly at all times.

More on Customer Service, Resolution of Complaints and the CPA:
We understand that many consumers these days from all spheres of life and related to all types of vendors and service providers believe that using HelloPeter to vent their concerns is a good way to move forward. However, please note that we do not support this website because it does not enable true possibility which is fair and equitable to consumer and supplier to solve reported problems. Customers and consumers register with “anonymous names” which often makes it impossible to help the person complaining. Their terms and conditions are not just and equitable to suppliers and services provides at any level, which makes this form of complaining often not very useful. There are far more effective means to solving problems.
