Huawei adds local digital payment platform Vensy Pay to the AppGallery

  • Huawei recently added local digital wallet platform Vensy Pay to its AppGallery marketplace.
  • The platform is designed to help unbanked South Africans transact digitally, and is powered by Nedbank.
  • Vensy Pay says thanks to its collaboration with Huawei, users can open wallet accounts without having to visit a bank branch or submit paperwork.

In recent years, Huawei has been looking to add more applications to its AppGallery. While popular local options like Mr D, Takealot, Showmax, and others were added to the marketplace, the company is also looking at apps from startups too, such as Vensy Pay.

For those unfamiliar with Vensy Pay, it is a locally created digital wallet platform that focuses on assisting the unbanked citizens of South Africa.

The digital wallet platform was recently added to the AppGallery, and thanks to a partnership with Huawei Mobile Services, is looking to make transacting far easier for South Africans.

To that end, facilities like online shopping, bill payments, and peer-to-peer transfers, are now accessible via Vensy Pay, with the use of a traditional bank account not being a hurdle here. Users are therefore able to create and access a digital wallet without the requirement of visiting a bank branch or indeed submitting any paperwork, with the platform backed by Nedbank.

“Through this collaboration, Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) users will now have access to a comprehensive suite of financial services right at their fingertips. This partnership showcases our commitment to providing innovative solutions that empower our users with the freedom and flexibility they deserve,” enthused William Hu, MD of Huawei Consumer Business Group for MEA Eco Development and Operation.

“As a fintech start-up business, our partnership with Huawei Mobile Services (HMS) serves as an excellent opportunity to reach our target market of unbanked communities. We’ve been provided with valuable app optimisation and localisation features that significantly improves Vensy Pay’s visibility and appeal to users,” added Evans Parson, CEO and founder of Vensy Pay, in a press release sent to Hypertext.

Given the proliferation of digital banking, contactless payments, and app-based interactions in the fintech space following the pandemic, it remains important for traditionally unbanked people not to be left behind. As such, we’re hoping to see more apps like Vensy Pay being added to the AppGallery by Huawei.

With that in mind, the company is calling for other local developers to reach out in order to publish their apps on Huawei’s marketplace. If you are interested in contact the company, you’re advised to email Huawei here – appgalleryza[at]huawei[dot]com.
