iKhokha has launched an exciting new mobile payment service that is set to transform the way SME’s accept payment from their customers. The Edge, a secure Chip & PIN card reader that plugs into a smartphone, and coupled with the iKhokha mobile app, transforms the phone into a secure mobile Point of Sale (mPOS) terminal, it enables merchants to process mobile card payments – anywhere in South Africa.
Using the Edge, a wide range of South African businesses are also able to tender cash, card and mobile transactions, sell value-added services (such as airtime) and monitor and track sales performance and transactional history through the slick and easy to use Mobile App.
To “Get the Edge”, business owners simply apply online and then download the iKhokha app from the relevant app store. The proprietary iKhokha online portal removes much of the hassle that SMMEs would normally face when signing up with their bank through traditional channels. Once paid for and approved, the Edge will be delivered to the merchant. The solution is available to all businesses irrespective of their bank.
Merchants pay a once-off cost for the Edge Chip & PIN card reader and thereafter a flat 2.75% per transaction, there are no hidden monthly fees. The Edge card reader is available in four colours– black, white, yellow and pink– and both the Edge and iKhokha mobile app are compatible with iPhone 4 upwards and most Android mobile devices.
