Mobile payment apps such as Snapscan, Zapper and Masterpass all take up space on your phone and to use them to pay a merchant, you must have data.
Ozapp is a progressive web application (PWA), which acts and looks like an app, but is actually a webpage that takes up very little space on your phone. It displays as an icon on the home screen of your smartphone just like a native app.
When using Ozapp to make a payment, you donâ€™t need data â€“ Ozow, the company that created Ozapp, carries this cost. You also donâ€™t have to register to use it or have a credit card. All you need is an online banking profile with your bank, and while payment happens through your banking profile, you donâ€™t ever have to add the service provider or merchant as a beneficiary. Ozapp does it for you.
