SnapScan is the most popular mobile payments app in South Africa. SnapSan is used daily by thousands of users and merchants, and works for any payment; in-store, online, mobile, even bill payments and print media.
We’re a product focused company on a mission to build the best mobile payments experience in the world. Development happens in a tight knit and passionate team who use the best tools to get leverage and move quickly.
SnapScan was started at the beginning of 2013 when the team decided that they want to make paying an awesome experience. The team has a lot of previous experience in banking and mobile money, so they knew that things could be improved greatly.
SnapScan’s first merchants were coffee shops and vendors at weekend markets. From the first coffee shops SnapScan built up momentum and quickly grew a passionate user base. Interest in the product grew and SnapScan won MTN’s app of the year competition and is frequently featured in local and international media (CNN, BBC, CNBC, Tech Central).
