Pay your parking tickets easier and quicker with Nedbank's new ‘scan-to-park’ tech
Nedbank announced that it has launched new technology that will make it easier for its anyone to pay for their parking tickets.
Made in partnership with global digital access developer SKIDATA, the new scan-to-park technology allows anyone with a Masterpass-enabled QR code scanning banking app, or digital wallet, to scan their parking ticket and make an instant payment – without ever having to handle cash or physically touch a parking pay station.
Josephine Baliah, head of acceptance business solutions for Nedbank, said in a statement: “Scan-to-park is a great example of how we are keeping our promise to harness the power of digital innovation to make payments easier and more convenient for all South Africans.”
Using a QR code app on your smartphone and scanning the QR code printed on a scan-to-park ticket, the payment transaction is instantly completed and confirmed, and you can then exit when you scan the ticket at any shopping centre.
Scan-to-park uses the Masterpass and Mastercard’s scan-to-pay service, which enables consumers to transact with any bank card through a secure app on their mobile phones.
Each Masterpass transaction is protected by multiple layers of security, ensuring the user’s personal and payment details are protected.
Scan-to-park ticket vending machines are already in use at a number of leading shopping malls in Gauteng, including Melrose Arch, Sandton City, and Nelson Mandela Square, and are currently being rolled out to Eastgate and Liberty Midlands Mall.
Nedbank added that it will be making the service available to 99 shopping centres across the country in the coming months.
