Pesapal has announced the launch of its mobile Point of Sale (mPOS) solution dubbed Pesapal Sabi. The solution allows businesses and individuals to process card payments in store or on the go via their Android mobile phones or tablets.
Targeting the East African market, the product seeks to help businesses, from mobile sole traders and SMEs to large multi-location retailers, process card payments more efficiently. Currently Sabi can process Visa and MasterCard debit and credit cards in both local currencies and US dollars.
These card payments will be processed over Bluetooth connections via Sabi mPOS terminals offered by Pesapal. Peapal says the terminals are able to process both chip and pin payments as well as NFC contactless payments. Business owners are then able to view their transaction histories and issue receipts for their payments via the Android app.
Later versions of Sabi will support mVisa, M-PESA and American Express payments adding to the payment options businesses will offer their clientele.
