Shoprite MMA: Now With Cash Wallet

28 October 2021 •

By: Tahlea Technology

The Shoprite Money Market app and USSD, designed and developed here at Byte Orbit HQ, were created to digitalise the Money Market services that are offered in-store and allow customers to save, send and spend on the go with future enhancements that include banking capabilities. Customers can access Money Market services such as buying airtime, data, gaming and grocery vouchers, as well as sending and receiving money from the Shoprite app, WhatsApp or via USSD. 

Since its release in August, last year, we have provided product support, and worked closely with Shoprite to launch several enhancements to make it easy for customers to utilise the app. Shoprite has officially launched the banking integration of the Money Market Account called the Cash Wallet. Anyone with a valid South African ID can register and reap all the benefits of a banking account. 

The Money Market Account provides customers with the following benefits: 

  • Low-cost banking with no unwanted fees (no monthly fees, no load fees, no transactional fees, only a R5 withdrawal fee).
  • No physical paperwork (everything is digital).
  • It is easily accessible via any mobile phone and available for free via the Shoprite app, USSD, WhatsApp or the Xtra Savings card.

Along with this exciting new feature, Shoprite has now made it possible to link your Xtra Savings card to your Money Market Account. Users can swipe their Xtra Savings card at any Shoprite, Checkers or Usave store and do transactions within the store with their Xtra Savings card.    

“Money Market is a brand that our customers have come to love and trust over the years. We are extending its services to help our customers to transact securely and to save, as we are acutely aware of the importance of saving at this time.” - Jean Olivier, General Manager: Financial Services for the Shoprite Group

Save, send and spend in seconds with the Shoprite Money Market Account, a free transactional app that makes managing your money matters easier. To get a Money Market Account, register for free in-store or download the Shoprite app from the App Store or Google Play Store, dial *120*3534# or add Shoprite (+27 87 240 5709) as a WhatsApp contact and follow the prompts.

"Being new to the Shoprite team, I have witnessed a team driven to perform and assist where needed, working hard to create an experience that will cater to the needs of millions. It has been a privilege to work on this product with such an exceptional team." - Melissa, Byte Orbit member on the Shoprite Project. 

Over the last few months, our team at Byte Orbit HQ have been hard at work and gearing up for this launch so we are so proud of them and this massive milestone. We know the future holds big prospects for the Money Market Account and we’re thrilled to be a part of the journey.
