The latest feature addition has transformed VodaPay into a more comprehensive banking-like platform. The app now includes two new services: Deposit and Send Money. With the Deposit Money function, users can add cash for free into their VodaPay Wallets through Vodacom stores and selected national retailers like Pick n Pay, Boxer, PEP, and more. Even Spaza shops through Kazang merchants support wallet deposits. These deposited funds empower users to make online purchases with VodaPay, earn rewards, and take advantage of daily deals, offering a holistic financial experience.
