Registration Of Celbux And How To Use It

For the longest time now, people have chimed in how much of a global village the world has become. 

The many things that have made this not just a cliché are the emergence of the internet and how swiftly yet accurately one can have something done even when they are sitting in the comfort of their homes— Celbux seeks to contribute to this globality in the lines of financial availability and access to students.


Before, the National Student Financial Aid Scheme abbreviated as NSFAS handed four types of vouchers to students which they used to expense their books, accommodation, food, and transport. 

It was later changed into cash vouchers which made it possible for these students to create Celbux vouchers through their NSFAS wallet. Withdrawal can be made from any merchant Celbux and NSFAS have partnered with.

Celbux is a substitute for having a bank account but unlike bank accounts that required students to use the money for transactions, Celbux made it all free.

In simple words, it is a third-party payment system that makes the essence of the mobile phone instead of cash or bank card.

Celbux is a South African software company focused on metamorphosing the world of money.
