The partnership allows Chinese tourists to South Africa to pay with the Alipay app at authorized retailers. City Sightseeing – a tour bus operator – is the first merchant to offer the Alipay service in South Africa. Samsung is also in discussions with South African banks and regulators to launch Samsung Pay in South Africa. Visa and Mastercard have already introduced their respective Visa Checkout and Masterpass payment solutions to push electronic payments in the country.
– To combat the increased processing of unauthorized debit orders in the country, in June 2017 the Payments Association of South Africa (PASA) introduced a new type of debit order (direct debit) called DebiCheck. The new DebiCheck debit order can only be processed if it is electronically confirmed by the customer. Under the new system, consumers can authenticate DebiCheck debit orders in multiple ways including USSD messaging through mobile phones, banking applications, online banking, ATMs, or at bank branches. It will be implemented in a phased manner over the course of the next two years.
– To offer convenient payments, Mastercard has introduced several innovative solutions. It introduced a biometric payment card with fingerprint authentication in April 2017, following several trials in partnership with retailer Pick n Pay and Absa Bank. The solution allows card holders to verify in-store payment by scanning their fingerprints. The cards at available from any financial institution, with the consumer’s fingerprint being digitally encrypted and stored on the card. Earlier in July 2016, Mastercard in collaboration with Virtual Card Services introduced a virtual POS enabling businesses to accept digital card payments in-store, remotely, or on-the-go through mobile devices. Consumers need to download the Masterpass app, register, and load their debit or credit cards into the wallet to make payments.
