Yesterday, at the Civic Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos, Access Bank Plc. relaunched its PayWithCapture platform with a host of refreshed features.
The latest iteration of the app is called PayWithCapture 5.0 and it boasts a host of interesting features which include person-to-person transfers, social banking, savings club, amongst others.
According to Herbert Wigwe, Access Bank GMD/CEO, who gave a run through of PayWithCapture offerings at the launch, users will also be able to transfer funds from any bank account to any other bank account using phone numbers or email addresses.
PayWithCapture also has a *901# USSD service which allows users, with or without a smartphone, to carry out banking transactions without the need to access the Internet.
Another interesting feature is the QR code scanning feature which has now been expanded beyond just payments to include bank transfers, airtime recharge, and so on.
As a PayWithCapture user, you can also set up a savings club (aka Ajo or Esusu) with friends and family. The savings club enables users of the app to collectively save towards a common goal. The funds can also be pooled and rotated amongst members or paid out through one person.
“We heard about the issues and complaints our customers had on the old app. With this new version, we’ve tried to resolve them all,” said Adeleke Adekoya, head of digital banking at Access Bank.
Presenting the PayWithCapture platform as a whole to the public, Access Bank GMD/CEO Herbert Wigwe touted the app – in its latest iteration – as the app that will replace banks.
After the GMD/CEO’s presentation and the event came to an end, guests were directed to the PayWithCapture experience center to have a first taste of the app and its functions before being treated to lunch.
