Making the acceptance of payments easier and solving the huge security risks surrounding payments.
Wallettec is a Cape Town based technology company that focuses on mobile payment solutions and mobile payment integration. Wallettec's PaaS (Payment as a Service) platform enables a retailer to accept any type of mobile transaction or currency type at their Point Of Sale. Through a single integration, retailers can enable consumers to transact at their Point Of Sale using only their mobile phones. No credit or debit cards required, no 3rd party apps. All you need is your mobile device and a bank account. Wallettec turns mobile payments into a real solution and not only a fancy way to swipe your credit or debit card. With our solution, all you need is your bank account and mobile device.
Banks, financial institutions even mobile phone companies are spending millions on developing secure ways to transmit payment information between the merchant and the payment processors. But still they are being hacked, financial information is still compromised and customers are forced to share payment information with merchants.
Wallettec’s solution solves this, with our solution no payment information is ever transmitted between the merchant and the payment processor. Neither the merchant nor Wallettec will ever know who the customer is or what payment process the customer used. The only way to secure payment information is never to share it and Wallettec made that possible.
Although Wallettec can be seen as a payments aggregator the Wallettec payment process is a convenient and secure way of accepting payments benefitting the merchant, customer and payments provider.
