Thokozani Dlamini, FNB Merchant Services CEO, says given the challenges we are currently facing globally due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it was essential that the company fast-tracks the rollout of QR code payments for enhanced convenience and safety.
“Added to the cost effective, convenient and efficient payment process of contactless payments, both consumers and merchants will have peace of mind from a safety perspective, as physical contact will be limited. Moreover, this solution will help us in driving wider financial inclusion and acceptance – helping consumers move away from cash,” adds Dlamini.
Scan to Pay is powered by Masterpass, Mastercard’s digital payment service, which is interoperable with almost every major domestic QR Code payment service. Therefore, consumers will be able to use any compatible mobile QR Code scanning App on FNB Speedpoint devices including FNB Scan to Pay, Snapscan and Zapper, etc.
FNB customers can simply enable the FNB App ‘Scan to Pay’ widget or shortcut on their smartphones (for a step-by-step guide see; fnb.co.za/For Me/Digital Payment Solutions). Alternatively, they can select the Payments option on the FNB App - login and select ‘Scan to Pay’.
