SnapScan allows South African customers to check out quicker and more securely with a scan or tap via card details stored on their phone. Customers spend less time in checkout, and more time shopping!
This adds another payment option. When a customer pays with SnapScan, they scan your code and pay without leaving your site.
SnapScan is the preferred way for South Africans to pay with their phones.
You may know the app from your favorite weekend market or local coffee shop, but SnapScan also provides payment solutions for larger merchants. From payments and invoicing for Pathcare laboratories to online checkout for big brands like Superbalist, Spree and Wellness Warehouse, we have expanded rapidly, and our flat rate of 3% (incl. VAT) per transaction is highly competitive.
To get started with SnapScan, you need a merchant account. No mountains of paperwork! Just mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we set you up in no time. The sign-up process takes 10 minutes maximum, then we send you all the information you need.
Once a customer has paid, their order is automatically completed and the website updates. As a merchant, your order list displays confirmation of the SnapScan payment, and you can begin the delivery process.
It just got a little easier for #WordPress (or more precisely #Woothemes) sites to connect with clients through WooCommerce – a plugin application with lots of great features and #customisable themes – and turn their sites into easy to use e-commerce platforms.
WooCommerce is a great way for businesses to quickly and professionally build a professional online shopping site, without the technical know-how (and headaches) of traditional #e-Commerce platforms.
“This has been in the works for quite a while and now we’re proud to officially launch WooCommerce,” said Adii Pienaar, co-founder and CEO of WooThemes. “We’ve spent the last 4 years building and selling themes. We’re one of the top theme providers and a trusted partner for millions. We have a lot to be thankful for. But we’re not resting. We’re taking everything we’ve learned along to the way, and are doubling down on WordPress, with a new application layer that tightly integrates with our themes and gives customers precisely the kind of end-to-end, holistic solution that they’ve been asking us for.”
“This is a big day for the whole team,” said Magnus Jepson, co-founder of WooThemes. “We’ve built a #fast-growing business. Now, we want to turn great themes into great applications. If your business wants to sell more products or services online, WooCommerce is your first stop.”
South African users have the option to quickly and easily integrate #PayFast with their WooCommerce installation, allowing them to receive payments funded by credit card, Instant EFT and uKash.
If you’re looking to accept instant payments for your smashing new WooThemes commerce page, head over here to get the PayFast plugin. We’re really excited about being included on the WooCommerce platform, giving you yet another way of getting your online store selling. Got a WooCommerce site?
