Co-operative Bank of Kenya customers can now make electronic payments from their smartphones and feature phones at no extra Cost through Co-op mVisa services.

Co-op mVisa is a cardless solution that offers customers the convenience of making digital payments at retail outlets through the bank’s mobile banking solution MCo-op cash.

With this service, users of ‘Pockets’ app can make cashless payments from their smartphones using their debit card by simply scanning a ‘mVisa’ quick response (QR) code at a merchant location without swiping the card at an EDC machine.

The service provides customers the convenience of speed to complete a transaction along with enhanced security as the card remains in possession of the customer. To use this facility, a customer is simply required to click on the ‘mVisa’ icon on the home screen of the ‘Pockets’ app.

How to access Co-op mVisa services
