Business owners across East Africa will now be able to conveniently accept digital wallet payments from their customers following the integration of Samsung Pay, Apple Pay, FitBit Pay and Google Pay payments to Pesapal’s new tap-and-go, contact-less Sabi M010 terminals.
With operations in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Malawi, Zambia, Rwanda and Zimbabwe, Pesapal provides a simple, safe and secure way for individuals and businesses to make and accept payments.
It offers a variety of convenient and cost effective options for end-users to make payments for products they are purchasing both online and at the point of sale.
Digital wallet payments are used in place of credit or debit card, chip and PIN transactions.
Customers save their cards on their smartphones and digital watches and then tap on a terminal to complete a payment.
Pesapal’s Sabi terminals enable merchants to accept these payments securely and reduces the time it takes to process payments within their premises.
“As a relatively new payment technology, digital wallet payments are exciting as they provide a new customer experience. The ability for a consumer to transact quickly and securely enables the merchant to focus on providing value to their customers as opposed to collecting payments. As a payment service provider, this is key to our offering as we enable merchants to transact seamlessly ” said Pesapal CEO Mark Mwongela
The payment options are immediately available to all merchants in Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania who are using the Sabi M010 device. All transactions are secured by CyberSource, providing end to end safety for both consumers and merchants who use the service.
Pesapal Sabi POS was previously offering mVisa, Visa and MasterCard debit and credit card payments only. This new integration brings up the total tally of payment options to 7.
