Pago Efectivo

What is Pago Efectivo?

Pago Efectivo is a popular, safe and easy way to transfer money to your Stars Account. It works with a bar-coded voucher that can be used at several payment outlets; for more information on where to take your voucher, please visit Pago Efectivo. To make a payment, simply present your payment outlet with the voucher and US dollars, or the local currency equivalent in cash to the US dollar value on the voucher, before the expiry date, and they will process the transfer. The barcode voucher makes for a hassle and error free way to transfer money.

How can I make purchases using Pago Efectivo?

All you have to do is visit the 'Make a Deposit' section of the Cashier, select Pago Efectivo and click 'Deposit' (if using the desktop client). On the Pago Efectivo page, enter the USD amount you wish to deposit and click 'Submit'. You will be redirected to a webpage, where you will be presented with your pre-filled Pago Efectivo barcode voucher. You must print this out and present it at a participating payment outlet in order to complete the deposit process. Please check your Pago Efectivo voucher for the expiry date.

Once we have received confirmation of the deposit - within 15 minutes in most cases - we will update your Stars Account balance accordingly.

It is important that you visit the Cashier for each subsequent Pago Efectivo deposit you wish to make in order to get a new Pago Efectivo barcode voucher. You will NOT be able to reuse a Pago Efectivo barcode voucher, nor use an expired one.
