The app is both convenient and safe! Whether you’re buying your first coffee for the day, visiting your favourite weekend market, grabbing a drink with friends or getting a taxi home, SnapScan has you covered. With over 14 000 merchants already signed up, you’ll never have to carry your wallet around with you again!

Carrying your cash and cards with you is also risky, while SnapScan keeps your card details encrypted safely on your phone. Cash can be stolen, your card can be cloned and all your money withdrawn at an ATM, but with SnapScan you have both a phone PIN and an app-specific PIN protecting your details.
