Zapper partners with Yoyo to offer easier payment

Zapper Yoyo QR code payment options businesses South Africa

Payment platform Zapper has partnered with SaaS provider Yoyo to offer a single QR payment code for businesses that gives customers more flexibility.

The integration means that there is more interoperability between retail apps that use the Yoyo wiCode platform and Zapper.

“By mapping Zapper to the Yoyo wiCode, merchants only have to present one QR code to their customers. It is then up to the customer to choose which app they open and use to scan and pay,” Brett White, CEO of Zapper, said in a statement.

This partnership between Zapper and Yoyo is currently available at the Famous Brands’ retail outlets, with a view to expand beyond that.

Since 2019, Zapper’s payment platform has accelerated third-party integration. These third parties include banks, telecommunication companies, and retail outlets.

In 2019, Zapper integrated with Dis-Chem to offer the payment method to the megastore’s customers. Recently, it was added to the Huawei Pay offering.

Customers can check if a retailer or restaurant supports the platform by looking at the QR code on their bill.
