Mastercard and Zapper collaborate to drive digital payments interoperability
Mastercard and Zapper are currently in talks to allow Masterpass users to pay for goods at Zapper merchants in South Africa using their smartphones.
Masterpass, Mastercard’s digital payment service, will soon be available at Zapper merchants, while Zapper users will be able to use the app to make payments at Masterpass-enabled merchants.
When concluded, Mastercard said the services will work at 20,000 Zapper merchants, and 50,000 Masterpass-enabled merchants nationwide.
“Masterpass users will soon be able to scan a point of sale QR code, or online at Zapper merchants, to pay for goods and services,” said Mark Elliott, Division President, Mastercard South Africa.
Will Heygate, Zapper South Africa CEO, said the collaboration will benefit all parties involved.
