SnapScan is a South African card wallet, allowing users to pay in-store or online. Users download the SnapScan app and can load up to three cards. To pay, users open app, scan the SnapCode QR code displayed in the shop at the point of sale, on the invoice or website where they want to pay. This identifies the shop and prompts the user to enter the amount they wish to pay and then their PIN or fingerprint to secure and complete the transaction. The merchant will receive a notification via SMS or on their point-of-sale system to confirm that the payment has been made.
