MasterCard and Entersekt are collaborating to enable Nedbank’s customers in South Africa to make QR payments to Masterpass, [email protected], SnapScan and Zapper merchants and billers through the Nedbank Money app, whether they are paying online or at a physical point of presence.
This market-first development, according to a press release, means Nedbank Money users need just one smartphone app for all major domestic scan-to-pay services, representing a combined footprint of more than 100,000 retail points of presence and 800 billers.
Mastercard has, over the past year-and-half, enabled Zapper and SnapScan vendors to accept Masterpass payments and enabled Masterpass merchants to accept Zapper and SnapScan payments.
“The enablement of Masterpass scan-to-pay capability within the Nedbank application represents yet another important milestone in the digital payment convergence journey,” Mark Elliott, division president MasterCard Southern Africa, said in the release. “It furthers our goal of driving interoperability across the payments ecosystem, so that consumers can pay securely and conveniently anywhere and with any card from a single app on their smartphones.”
