WINDHOEK, (CAJ News) – NAMIBIAN consumers and merchants are increasingly turning to cashless payment methods as their preferred method of transacting.

Rejoice Itembu, Head of Client Solutions at Standard Bank, said the app has shown significant annual average growth in its active user base of 205 percent since 2018.

“Standard Bank remains firmly committed to providing digital banking solutions and realizing the cashless society as more customers embrace digital solutions and the use of technology to conduct everyday activities like banking,” Itembu said.

Standard Bank made enhancements to the PayPulse App throughout 2021 and added a series of new features including Bill Splitting, Money Request, self QR code creation and Pay-by-Link option.
