Digital Satellite Television (DSTV) is a service demanded by a larger population of over fifty percent home users. The service demand the need to always renew the subscription on monthly basis which was done by visiting the office in any town where they are located and that technique has further migrated to e-payment by visiting their site and a particular bank where PIN for payment will be obtained before the user can proceed for payment with the help of a user's smartcard number. In Nigeria, doing this, creates a lot of inconveniences. It is against this backdrop that this study designed an alternative means of payment known as "Mobile Payment", which allows payment to be done using a software that runs on a Mobile phones with the aim of using any of the communication network like GLO, MTN, ETISALAT etc, with the option of using recharge card for payment either in one's office, or home, during the weekend, anytime or anywhere where the account will be renewed immediately instead of the delay experienced with the earlier method of payment. The software was developed with Java Micro Edition (JME) as the front end while MySQL database was used as the backend with Object Oriented Analysis and Design Methodology (OOADM). Preliminary findings from the study showed very promising results.
