ZipZap’s free app is available for all devices

ZipZap, from Paycorp, is the only South African mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) solution that can be used across all current mobile operating systems (Blackberry, iOS, Android, Windows Mobile and Desktop) and is the only one compatible with all the latest Windows devices.

ZipZap is an independent mPOS solution, providing advantages for businesses or retailers who have previously had to take payment in cash or rely on their clients to pay via EFT. A wide range of merchants can benefit from taking payments on-the-move with the peace of mind that payment from customers is immediate and that they no longer have to chase slow payers.

Retailers can download the free ZipZap app by visiting their smartphone’s app store or the ZipZap website (, and applying as a merchant for the card reader directly from within the app, regardless of the smartphone they use.

“At Paycorp, we pride ourselves in our ability to create and maintain multiple partnerships with numerous service providers in a sector. This offers us the opportunity to give our customers the best possible services to suit all their needs which includes being able to accept secure mobile payments on the platform of their choice,” says Steven Kark, CEO of Paycorp.

ZipZap uses the merchant’s smartphone or tablet to accept all card payments by connecting via Bluetooth or USB to a separate and secure ZipZap card reader. ZipZap mPOS provides merchants with a service that allows them to issue e-receipts via SMS or email as well as view a detailed transaction history via the free ZipZap app or an online merchant portal.

ZipZap is built on state-of-the-art point-to-point encryption and is fully industry certified and compliant, regardless of the operating system it is paired with.
