    SnapScan rolls out beacon payments in South Africa

    News in brief

    South African mobile payments company SnapScan has rolled out Bluetooth beacon based in-store mobile payments at 50 merchants in Cape Town and Johannesburg. The SnapBeacons system pops up a “pay here” button on the customer’s phone as they come within range of a store’s beacon. “SnapScan customers can now simply tap a button in the app to initiate the transaction via Bluetooth,” Ventureburn explains. “A message on the customer’s phone will alert them when the option is available.”
