    1. Dear,Peace, thanks for your message. I don’t know of any reliable seller yet but you can inquire in any MTN offices in Illorin or near by. They have clues to it too.

    2. The Pos Machine is a small device and you may have seen it at the banks or many shopping outlets. But each one has its purpose.For recharge card printing you can get between N50,000 and N90,000. Check out any MTN office in your location and inquire , they may guide you more.

  10. As recharge card printer if buy any means I encounter errors in the recharge pin given to me by my dealer after payments, how will I sought it?

    1. Its computer generated and tested before generating automatically. No error and if the card cants load then you can call the customer care and and state the serial number to them so they will verify the actual cause of the issue.

    1. Henry…It is relatively easier to start. Just find a store or an office where you can start. Buy the POS machine and learn how to operate it. Find your target market.. Market your product and you are good to go.

        1. Dont know any seller of the Pos yet in Kano. Will update once I found reliable seller. Sorry for late reply.
