    Then follow the instructions below.

    2. If you are registered for Mobile Banking, you can download the App immediately.

    3. Visit your phone’s app store and search for 'CABS MOBILE BANKING APP' 

     4. Download, install and open the App.

     5. Follow the easy on screen instruction to activate the App.





    Can I use it on more than one cellphone or tablet device?
    Yes you can, but your OTP will only be sent to your registered mobile number for security reasons.

    Can I use it overseas?
    Yes, if you have a local line for that country that supports data, or as long as the country you’re visiting supports roaming and you’ve activated international data roaming. Note the international roaming costs charged by your service provider. You can also use the app without roaming by accessing a secure WiFi network.

    In order for you to use the app internationally, you must download and activate it before leaving Zimbabwe.

    How much data will I need to download the app?
    The app varies in size depending on your cellphone’s operating system – for example for Android the app is approximately 2.46 MB. The exact app file size is available in your cellphone’s app store. Our app is called “CABS Mobile Banking”.

    What is an OTP (One Time PIN)?
    An OTP or One Time PIN is a secret number that you will receive by SMS to your registered mobile number. You need to enter this when prompted to activate the app. You do not need to remember the OTP.

    Tell me about the app and airtime or data
    You’ll need to have some prepaid airtime or data to use the app. You can also use a secure WiFi network if you’ve run out of prepaid airtime or data.

    The app was designed to be secure and efficient to use small amounts of data when doing transactions. These data costs save you money because you don’t need to visit a CABS Branch or Agent to complete transactions or pay bills.

    Can I connect to WiFi to use the app?
    Yes, the app can be used when you are connected to a WiFi network. We encourage you to only use secure WiFi networks.

    Why does the cellphone app indicate that it is unable to connect? The app will let you know if it cannot connect to the Internet and will prompt you to keep trying. Remember to check that you have enough airtime, that your cellphone is not in flight mode or, if using WiFi, that your WiFi network is working.

    I can’t download the cellphone app. What must I do?
    Have you checked that:

      • Your cellphone is enabled for data?
      • Your cellphone is supported?
      • You have enough airtime or data if you are on prepaid?
      • There is connectivity (either cellular or WiFi)?

    If you continue having trouble, call the CABS Contact Centre +263 4 883823 - 60 or the Textacash Helpdesk on 08080012/3 (toll free)

    I can’t activate the app. What must I do?
    Make sure you have registered for Mobile Banking (dial *227# if you are not sure). Check that you have enough airtime or data and that you have cellular connectivity, make sure that you have entered the correct mobile number and OTP (one time password) which you will receive by SMS to the phone that you have registered for mobile banking.

    I have a new cellphone. What must I do?
    Carry out the installation process as detailed above. Must I activate the app using the number I registered for Mobile Banking in Branch?

    Yes. You have to install and activate the app on your cellphone using the cellphone number verified with us. This is a security measure to protect your money.

    I’ve forgotten my PIN. What now?
    Visit your CABS Branch and de-register for Mobile Banking and then re-register and select a new Mobile Banking PIN.

    How will I know that I need to install a new version of the app?
    You’ll be notified through your cellphone’s official app store and by SMS to your registered mobile number.

    How will I know if a transaction’s been successfully processed? Transactions are not processed (or completed) until you see a message confirming that the transaction was successful. You can also check your mini-statement to confirm transactions.
