Zapper will soon be compatible with Mastercard's Masterpass payments system, after the companies on Monday announced a new possible collaboration.

The two companies are currently in talks to use the QR-code fueled app to complete payments at Masterpass-enabled merchants across South Africa, while Masterpass users can similarly use Zapper to complete payments where applicable.
Mechanically, nothing will change for those who have used Zapper in the past.
“When shopping, Masterpass users simply scan a Zapper QR code displayed at a point of sale, or online at a wide range of Zapper merchants, to pay for goods and services,” the companies explained in a press release.
Once the code is scanned, users will be asked to enter their payment amount, which will then be confirmed through either the users’ ATM PIN or a one-time PIN number sent to their smartphone.
