Some Frequently Asked Questions
General, Email/Website Hosting, Website Design, USSD App & WhatsApp ChatBot Development
How do I manage my account?
What is USSD?
You already know it from promotions/competitions/banks which say you need to dial some number, usually starting with *120*… or *130*… and so forth. These are USSD numbers/codes. USSD is a low-cost mobile phone technology which when you dial the USSD number starts a real-time/live two way interaction service that allows you to display a menu on the dialler’s phone and enables them to interact with this menu. 99% of all cell phones are able to use USSD. USSD is normally used for: surveys, competitions, mobile payment solutions, etc.
What exactly is a ChatBot?
If you stop innovating, you regress!
The ChatBot is the application that runs on a application server and handles all incoming/outgoing messages from/to users and/or initiates messages to users. One of the major advantages of a ChatBot is the fact that it never sleeps and works 24 / 7 / 365.
Payment options supported?
We support the following payment options:
EFT, Credit Card (MasterCard/Visa), Instant EFT, Masterpass, Bank EFT, Cash (Pay at: SA Post Office, Shoprite, Checkers, OK, House & Home or USave) or PayPal.
* For our banking details: Dial *120*5533*BANK# (South Africa Only)
USSD Application Development - what is it actually?
What we do is simplify all this but re-thinking USSD Application Development and have created solutions from the ground up – with the needs of SMEs in mind. This has allowed us to offer great value and the right price point for the SME market.
Can I add media to my WhatsApp ChatBot?
Yes you can. After implementation of yourWhatsApp ChatBot, the development and implementation of media (images, voice, video, documents, etc) will be charged as an additional fee.
The price for your USSD2Chatapp package only covers only text media for your WhatsApp ChatBot because USSD only has text with USSD2Chatapp being its WhatsApp equivalent. Contact us for more information on pricing, etc.
Is it safe to pay online on your Secure Client Portal?
Secure connection to our servers:
The Last Invention Secure Client Portal automatically encrypts your confidential information in transit from your computer to ours using the Secure Sockets Layer protocol (SSL) with an encryption key length of 128-bits (the highest level commercially available). Before you even register or log in to the Secure Client Portal, our server checks that you’re using an approved browser.
Trusted and Reputable payment gateway:
We also use the Pay Now Gateway from Sage Pay as our payment gateway. We also support PayPal payments. A payment gateway facilitates secure online transactions and allows funds to be transferred effortlessly from your bank account to ours.
For more information on these please see:
Sage Pay: https://netcash.co.za/
Pay Now Payment Gateway: http://www.sagepay.co.za/sagepay/pay_now_gateway.asp
What is Web Hosting?
You can either pay a web hosting company for your website hosting or you can opt for free hosting. If you go for free hosting then you will have banner advertisements or pop-ups on your website. If you pay for it you will have no adverts and will be in complete control of your website.

My experience with The Last Invention has given me a new outlook of the power of USSD. Thanks to their super-efficient service, professionalism and development offerings; the process of changing over from conventional SMS messaging has been an effortless process. Overall I am very impressed, the automated system has enhanced our data, increased our bottom line and assisted us with much needed analytics. This has enlightened us on a new way of extracting value out of data.
