VodaPay delivers a digital shopping, lifestyle and financial platform for consumers and businesses.
“Through our sustained investments into financial, digital and lifestyle services, we remain focused on providing opportunities to enhance our relationship with the 129.6 million customers we serve across our footprint,” said Shameel Joosub, Vodacom’s CEO.
“I am particularly excited about VodaPay’s high adoption rate since its launch in South Africa in October last year
“This super-app has attracted 2.2 million downloads and 1.6 million registered users and will offer services ranging from loans and savings, seamless QR and person-to-person payments, to entertainment and personalised shopping experiences, promoting greater financial inclusion.”
VodaPay is backed by Alipay technology that powers over 1.2 billion users and almost 100 million merchant partners, using state of the art technology including artificial intelligence (AI). This is the first partnership of its kind in Africa.
VodaPay is a powerful all-encompassing platform aimed at driving digital and financial inclusion in South Africa and the rest of the continent. It is a highly secure and transparent app that allows consumers to load money into their wallets and send it to anyone in real time or use it to make any purchase through the app, ranging from ecommerce to buying airtime, electricity, water, insurance and many other use cases.
With VodaPay, customers can also add their bank cards from any recognised South African bank and use it for shopping and paying. With money transfers, at no cost, in real time, customers living in rural areas will no longer have to travel long distance to get their money, they can access their money through their personal digital wallet already available on the app.
