Pasa to explore new ways to do payments at its upcoming conference

Payments Association of South Africa (Pasa) is set to host an international Payment Conference at the end of the month from 31 July to 1 August in Johannesburg.

The association is responsible for managing payment systems in South Africa.

CEO at Payments Association Of South Africa, Walter Volker says this year's theme for the conference is "Navigating the future of payments".

He says there are a number of international as well as domestic experts who will be investigating better ways to manage payments.

This is all about expanding payments to a greater proportion of the South African population by doing things better that we are doing them today.

Walter Volker, CEO at Payments Association Of South Africa

We are looking at a whole architecture for local payments which will make payments far more flexible and immediate, hopefully accessible to more people allowing a variety of devices to connect in.
