Vodacom launched VodaPay in South Africa

Vodacom South Africa announced the launch of Africa’s first super-app with the help from China’s Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. This new app, called VodaPay, will be available to South African customers in coming weeks, and will help Vodacom expand financial and e-commerce services in its home market in the absence of new high-speed broadband spectrum.

“The world is moving toward e-commerce, and while leveraging off what we already have we also need to grow that side,” Chief Executive Officer Shameel Joosub said.
