SOUTH AFRICA – Global payments technology company InComm has partnered with South African payments transaction integrator Flash and Pepkor Group to launch prepaid products in the country.

InComm will enhance Flash’s partners’ product offerings by adding prepaid products for content, gaming, streaming and taxi hailing.

Flash has already built the largest informal retail network in Africa, integrating various technology platforms and channels, and will now become InComm’s exclusive distribution partner in South Africa.

Currently, Flash offers a wide range of innovative solutions that give businesses and their customers the freedom to transact safely and conveniently.

Having built the largest informal retail network in Africa, featuring seamless integration across multiple technology platforms and channels, Flash will be InComm’s exclusive distribution partner in South Africa.

Through Flash’s informal retail network – which includes small independent merchants – InComm’s prepaid products will be available in every region across South Africa, potentially serving tens of millions of customers per month.

InComm’s prepaid products will also be offered at Pepkor retailers, the largest non-grocery retail group in South Africa. The retail conglomerate, which boasts more than 4,000 stores across South Africa, focuses on the value market, selling predominantly clothing, footwear and textiles.

“We couldn’t be prouder of this milestone: launching in South Africa with the country’s main retail distribution partner,” said Simon Osgood, InComm’s Senior Vice President for EMEA and Russia.

“There’s huge potential for all the products we’ll be offering, especially the adoption of gaming products for a population that is experiencing double-digit annual growth in online gaming.”

By building more value into every transaction through innovative payment technologies, InComm creates seamless and valuable commerce experiences.

InComm’s unique products and services – which range from gift card malls to enhanced payment platforms – connect companies across a wide range of industries including retail, healthcare, tolling & transit, incentives and financial services to an ever-expanding consumer base.
