Leading telco DST has just unveiled a major new feature to its app called MyDST Shop, an online marketplace that allows customers to pay bills, shop, order food, and purchase utilities all on one platform.
Previously, the MyDST app was just a platform for DST customers to pay their bills, top-up credit and check data usage. But with this latest upgrade the telco hopes to expand its services into the digital marketplace.
“This is a very significant moment for DST as it evolves from being a Telco to a DigitalCo, by offering products and services beyond connectivity,” CEO Radin Sufri Radin Basiuni said at the launch Tuesday.
“We are offering our partner merchants access to our customers to jointly create a marketplace for both DST and merchant partners’ customers.”
How it works
MyDST Shop already has a wide range of merchants in its network, ranging from electronics stores and restaurants, to gas cylinder suppliers.
The user-friendly interface makes ordering from your favourite vendors a breeze — you can browse menus and catalogues and track deliveries in real-time. All deliveries are handled by the merchants’ drivers, ensuring your order reaches you quickly.
The app also has secure payment options for using credit or debit cards.
DST said it will continue to expand its network of merchants and is inviting potential vendors (with their own delivery teams) to be part of the MyDST ecosystem.
