Vodacom has introduced its new VodaPay Masterpass mobile app in South Africa. The service can be use with the Mastercard’s global digital payment service to enable tokenized bank card payments.
The app is accessible on both the Google Play Store and Apple App Store, and is developed by the same company which created the Masterpass applications for South African banks.
To start using the app, consumers must simply validate their mobile phone number and then load their bank card as a payment method by either inputting their details manually or scanning the card.
The Masterpass enables online, mobile, and in-store purchases, and supports a number of different payment methods.
The VodaPay also offers the purchase of airtime, data, and other mobile products by supporting Vodacom’s Express Recharge – a USSD platform which enables customers to buy airtime and data using their bank card.
VodaPay users can also settle their bills through the VodaPay Masterpass app, including their DStv account and their TV license fees.
