Our Additional Services

The ALLPS Voucher System was introduced for Amplifin clients looking to expand on their current product offerings and sell various prepaid products such as airtime, electricity, and DStv via an electronic interface.

ALLPS Voucher System

Generally, prepaid products are made available to clients by wholesale providers who rent out dedicated Point of Sale hardware and printing equipment. These devices then print vouchers displaying a system-generated code. Once the system-generated code that is displayed on the voucher is entered into the relevant device, the prepaid product can be accessed and used by the end consumer.

Rather than introduce additional dedicated Prepaid Point of Sale hardware and printing equipment into the ALLPS Branch Network, Amplifin has selected a wholesale provider that is prepared to support an electronic interface to the prepaid products and grants a rebate to Amplifin clients once the prepaid products are sold to the end consumer.

No additional monthly fees or transaction costs are applicable for ALLPS users who wish to access the ALLPS Voucher System. Voucher purchases are debited directly from the user’s Mercantile AET bank account, and users receive a monthly invoice from Amplifin.

How vouchers are utilised:

Pre-Paid (PIN) Airtime

The Pre-Paid (PIN) option enables purchase and printing of an airtime voucher from a list of all the available network options. A system-generated code will be displayed on the printed voucher receipt the customer enters into their device to access and use the airtime purchased.

PIN-less Airtime

The Airtime (PIN-less) option enables the purchase and direct loading of airtime to a specified cell phone number. As such, the customer will not have to enter a system-generated code (as is the case with the Pre-Paid PIN option) to access their airtime. The airtime will be available immediately after purchase.

It is essential that the cell phone number is confirmed with the Customer and accurately captured as credits to incorrect cell phone numbers cannot be reversed.

Electricity

The Electricity option enables the purchase of prepaid electricity. The printed Voucher Receipt displays the system-generated code the customer can enter into their meter to access and use the electricity purchased.

DStv

DStv voucher payments facilitate account payments and make payments into the DStv Account.

Account Verificatioin System

Account Verification Services (AVS) is a powerful real-time or delayed mechanism that enables users to validate specific bank account details provided by the payer before creating a payment instruction.

AVS is a solid preventative measure against businesses accepting and loading incorrect or fraudulent bank account details or deductions as it ensures that the bank account details provided by the payer belong to the consumer for which a mandate is being created and is linked to an account that meets the requirements for collection before providing services or products.

Both Batch (delayed) and Real-time AVS requests are supported.

The consumer details that are verified are as follows:

Name and surname

ID number

Bank account type

Whether the bank account accepts debits or credits

Cellular number (crucial for DebiCheck in a non-face-to-face environment)

Bank account number

The length of time the account has been open (whether the bank account has been open for longer than 3 months)

Bank account status (open or closed)

Email address

Bank branch code

The ALLPS eSignature Solution

The ALLPS eSignature Solution allows for the user to electronically capture signatures on mandates signed by the payer on our PIN Entry Device and are uploaded to a secure environment.

ALLPS also allows you to upload scanned documents to a secure environment. Should you experience any internet connectivity problems during the creation of payment instructions, the mandate can be signed, scanned and uploaded once connectivity has been restored.

The most cost-efficient way of staying compliantn is by using eSignatures, as this will ensure that all mandates are always safely stored and accessible in ALLPS-i, reducing printing and stationary expenses and eliminating the hassle of filing and storing printed documents.

This paperless approach has less impact on the environment is extremely cost effective.
