Nature of Service
PayContactless brings in-person payments to smart mobile devices by allowing a merchant to use their smart device as a Payment Acceptance Tool (similar to the POS terminal) in a way that is fast, safe and involves little to no contact.
To make it easier and more interesting for our users, PayContactless consists of multiple means of accepting and making payments. Among these options include Tap-to-Phone, Account based (bluetooth), QR Code and USSD.
PayContactless customers are not tied to a specific merchant, however are customers of a particular organization e.g the bank.
Merchants are grouped under a specific organization (an entity capable of maintaining an entire PayContactless system and thus have their own administrative portal where merchants are managed).
