“Our customers love convenience and the EasyScan innovation is another way we are enhancing their shopping experience,” Pick n Pay Head of Omnichannel, John Bradshaw, said in a statement.
“There is no need for them to keep their cash and cards on them, and they make no contact during the transaction.”
The announcement comes not long after Pick n Pay and Standard Bank announced a partnership that would see the bank establish in-store branches at select outlets.
The branches offer services such as account signups. They also let customers view statements, make payments, and register for the bank’s mobile services.
Customers can also deposit and withdraw cash at Pick n Pay till points as well as redeem Instant Money vouchers.
How to use EasyScan at Pick n Pay outlets
After registering, you can tap the “Scan QR” icon on the app’s login page.
You can then scan the EasyScan code at the outlet’s till points to pay for your shopping.
