Accepting payments through social media

Payment Links Bridge Breakdowns in Customer Digital Journeys

Products and services bought on websites mostly have fixed offerings at a fixed price. A seat on a specific flight costs x. Should a customer require something that the digital offering does not have, like a group booking, then the Customer journey moves away from the website to email, chat or the call centre. Once the Customer’s request is understood and the price agreed, a simple payments link can complete the journey. Organisations are relying more and more on their digital channels for revenue generation. Payment links have been successfully used in email commerce for a while.

iVeri & Nedbank’s ‘Tap-on-phone’ – a first in Africa – empowers SMMEs with safe and secure contactless payments

At the height of the global Covid-19 pandemic, Nedbank became the first bank to offer small, medium and micro enterprises (SMMEs) the ability to turn their cellphones into a payment acceptance device with the launch of its Tap-on-phone functionality in October 2020.

Following a successful closed pilot in June, the easily downloadable app has empowered a number of merchants and business owners with the ability to accept card payments on their cellphones without having to purchase point-of-sale (POS) devices. Merchants include beauty parlours, hairdressers and car washes, proving the importance of such a solution for small to medium sized enterprises in South Africa.
