South Africa Mobile Wallet and Payment Market Opportunities (Databook Series) – Market Size and Forecast across 45+ Market Segments in Mobile Commerce, International Remittance, P2P transfer, Bill Payment, Retail Spend, Consumer Attitude & Behaviour, and Market Risk
Competition in South African mobile payment market has intensified over recent years with key global players such as Samsung, Apple Pay, and Huawei Pay eyeing the lucrative market to drive their global expansion.
Huawei Pay plans to launch its services in early 2019 and will support NFC technology and QR code. Samsung Pay has already established a significant presence in the South African mobile payment. As a result, it is expected that its competitors will have to do a lot of work in order to perform in the market.
The biggest differentiator for Samsung Pay is a technology called as MST (Magnetic Secure Transmission). This secret weapon from Samsung allows the phones supporting Samsung Pay for making contactless payments, including card machines which do not support NFC.
While contactless technology is being aggressively driven by the banks, PASA, Visa and Mastercard, NFC will still take a while before being widely adopted at stores and restaurants. This surely gives Samsung an added advantage in the South African market as MST allows its mobile payments app to perform in majority of the cases by emulating the magnetic stripe of bank card being swiped through payment terminal.
