Different ways to pay with your phone

Scan in-store

Whether the merchant’s SnapCode is at the till, on your bill or at your restaurant table, you’ll skip the usual queues with our quick, easy mobile payments solution. Just scan the code, enter the amount and make that payment in a snap.

We have more than 30,000 merchants across South Africa!

Pay Your Bill

SnapScan’s not just for your early morning cup of coffee. With our easy-to-use bill payments, you can pay for any goods and services from the comfort of your couch. On paper, via e-mail or SMS, paying your bills is easier than ever before.

Check out online

With our online checkout option, you only have to load your card details once, when you download our app. With your information already securely encrypted, you don’t need to enter them on a website again. And if you’re paying from your phone, it’s as easy as clicking a button!

Pay without scanning

SnapBeacons* use your phone’s Bluetooth to detect which SnapScan merchant you’re buying from. Just tap “Pay Here”, and you’ll see the business you need to pay pop up on your screen.

At selected merchants only. Compatible Android and iPhone devices.
