The Vodacom m-pesa slution is now used by more than 18 million people across 13 countries to perform banking and money transfer services via mobile phone. Specifically redesigned for the South African market, the service introduces a number of entirely new elements including a chip and pin protected Visa card, and a voucher system to upload cash. The new m-pesa Visa card gives access to approximately 27,000 ATMs and over 240,000 merchant outlets in South Africa, dramatically increasing the versatility of the service. Another key innovation is the introduction of a voucher system which allows people to convert cash to m-pesa at all Vodacom shops, selected spaza shops, and at selected retailers. The process is similar to buying airtime and makes topping up the m-pesa wallet quick and convenient. On top of this, traditional services like person to person transfers have been optimised. Additional functionality is planned for the near future. In short, this is true mobile banking that has something to offer for all income groups across South Africa.
