InComm Debuts Prepaid Products in South Africa

Partnership with Flash and Pepkor Group will feature content, gaming, streaming, and ride-hailing gift cards to millions of customers

March 5, 2020

ATLANTA – InComm, a leading payments technology company, today announced that it has partnered with Flash, South Africa’s leading payments transaction integrator, and Pepkor Group, to launch prepaid products in South Africa.

Currently, Flash offers a wide range of innovative solutions that give businesses and their customers the freedom to transact safely and conveniently. InComm will enhance Flash’s partners’ product offerings through the addition of prepaid products, including products for content, gaming, streaming, and ride-hailing.

Having built the largest informal retail network in Africa, featuring seamless integration across multiple technology platforms and channels, Flash will be InComm’s exclusive distribution partner in South Africa. Through Flash’s informal retail network – which includes small independent merchants – InComm’s prepaid products will be available in every region across South Africa, potentially serving tens of millions of customers per month. 

InComm’s prepaid products will also be offered at Pepkor retailers, the largest non-grocery retail group in South Africa. The retail conglomerate, which boasts more than 4,000 stores across South Africa, focuses on the value market, selling predominantly clothing, footwear and textiles.

“We couldn’t be prouder of this milestone: launching in South Africa with the country’s main retail distribution partner,” said Simon Osgood, InComm’s Senior Vice President for EMEA and Russia. “There’s huge potential for all the products we’ll be offering, especially the adoption of gaming products for a population that is experiencing double-digit annual growth in online gaming.”
