For how to pay zakat through the BukaZakat feature, users can follow the steps as follows:
- Click the Social & Community menu from Bukalapak’s home page and continue by selecting BukaZakat.
- Select the type of zakat you wish to pay.
- Enter the zakat amount as needed. A zakat calculator is also available to help users calculate the amount of zakat that has to be paid.
