This service enables corporate organizations to receive funds from their customers or subscribers for goods and services rendered. The service targets organizations that receive many payments from the public, have a corporate personality and seek convenience and timely payments from their customers.

Organizations can benefit from this service due to the convenience it provides in collection of payments as their customers can pay for bills from anywhere, anytime as long as they are registered for Sahal and have money in their Sahal account.

The service has already been taken up by a number of companies including; Medical Companies, Educational institutions, National Hospitals, Golis postpaid bill payments and etc.

This service enables organizations to send money by Sahal to many people who may be widely dispersed. The service targets organizations that would like to do promotional payments, field staff disbursements, salary disbursements, dividend payments among others. Bulk payment service is easy to use and is being improved further to cater for ever-growing market requirements.

The bulk payment facility has already been beneficial to clients, providing a quick way of sending funds to their beneficiaries.
