Did you know that you can accept Snapscan payments from your Ecommerce site?

Snapscan is a popular payment app in widespread use in South Africa, that allows you to pay merchants with your phone, using a specialised QR code that you scan with your phone, and confirm by entering a pin number.

Locally Designed & Developed

Designed and developed in South Africa, specifically for the African market, Snapscan makes it easy to effect payments without need for cash or cards, and online, without the need to enter sensitive credit card details into merchant websites.

Although up to date figures aren’t available, users of QR codes in South Africa grew to more than 2 million in 2014, only 1 year after Snapscan launched, and the user base has continued to grow, demonstrating a level of trust in the system that is rare in digital transactions in the South African market.

To date, over 25,000 merchants use Snapscan, making it an exceptionally convenient payment channel for end users, and integrate

Snapscan is by no means limited to making payments at coffee shops and fleamarkets either.  With the number of merchants now accepting it, it’s become a recognised and completely legitimate method of transacting payments, and as a result, online digital commerce providers have made it possible to integrate Snapscan into their website payment gateways as well.

Snapscan currently has plug-ins available for both WooCoomerce and Magento, so if you accept payments from website visitors online, via EFT, Credit Card or PayPal, here’s another option that might suit you, particularly if your focus is on B2C sales and mobile device users.

Integrate Snapscan with your ecommerce facility and further simplify receiving payment from your website customers.
