Some reasons to choose us

We strive to offer the most value for money services in our industry. Check out what you can gain by joining WAPPoint!

We are the only service provider to offer every merchant a free backup online Snap & Pay terminal to process transactions when your existing terminal is down. We also offer free onsite backup terminals at most major events.

We pay R200 in cash for every referral that signs up with us and a further transaction based commission after 5 referrals have signed up.

We are one of the only service providers who offer both outright purchase and rental packages allowing our merchants to choose based on their business needs. 

Because we have so many solutions, you have the flexibility to switch between various packages and contracts if your business needs change. We are the ideal one-stop-shop for all your needs!

We pride ourselves on offering value for money rather than being the cheapest but if you find it cheaper elsewhere, we will happily match any written quote or current supplier pricing unless it beats our costing margins.

Our online reporting tools give you access to your transaction history and settlement recons which make it convenient for you to access any time of day! These reports are also available in CSV format so you can download and import into any accounting package, saving you time and money on bookkeeping. Our multi-level access features allow you to manage multiple businesses or branches under one account. 

We’ve been around since the year 2000 so you can be sure that you are with a company that knows our industry and your business needs like no other!

We operate nationally and can deliver to and support merchants in any part of South Africa. 

We don’t compromise on quality, ever and will only source the best products for our merchants. This means we may not be the cheapest card machine provider but cheap card machines can result in many lost sales and frustration for merchants.

When your turnover is split amongst providers your chances of qualifying for the best rates decrease. We offer everything for physical and online sales and we’ll use your combined turnover to adjust your rates.

Feel like a VIP with your very own dedicated account manager to attend to your merchant needs regardless of your turnover or status! 

Sign up online within minutes and we’ll have you transacting within 24-72 hours or less!

We offer around the clock support 24/7/365 and because we cater for +-500 events per year, our weekend / after hour support teams are highly trained to make sure you are properly taken care of. 

Many service providers charge minimum swipe fees (when you swipe for under R100) or settlement fees (when you have to request settlement or per day traded) which we do not. With us there are no hidden costs!

Most service providers offer gross settlement and then deduct all the fees on month end when there are already so many expenses going off. That’s why we offer nett settlement so you have control over your cash flow.

We are the only service provider where you can rent a card payment solution on a short term basis like for an event only. 

WAPPoint is a family business driven on strong family values. As such, we like to keep a personal touch on every aspect of the business, making it possible for our customers to experience first class service and dedication. 

Our staff are highly trained, extremely efficient and can communicate (read, write and speak) in English & Afrikaans.

Compare WAPPoint VS Other Card Machine Services

When comparing card machine merchant services in South Africa, make sure you are aware of all the pros and cons of each supplier. Each card machine merchant service supplier has their own pricing structure and offers a different kind of service. If you are only looking for the lowest priced card machine, keep in mind that with that, comes limited merchant services or valued added extras. A cheap card machine isn’t everything and choosing the wrong one can end up costing you a lot in lost sales if the terminal is unreliable.

No matter if you are shopping around for wireless speed points or swiping machines, mobile card machines, MPOS or card reader (Bluetooth smartphone card payment App) kind of card terminals or snap and pay solutions, you must always ask these basic service questions before you choose a card machine.

  1. Can I upgrade or downgrade my contract with my card processing service provider?
  2. If my card machine breaks, how fast can I get a new one and what are the procedures?
  3. How much would I have to pay extra for a new card machine if something happens to my old one?
  4. If I am exhibiting at an event and I urgently need another card machine or my speed point isn’t working, where can I get a new device or how can I keep accepting card payments?
