How to pay with Spot at participating merchants
Now you can use Virgin Money Spot to pay at some of South Africa’s leading stores and it couldn’t be easier!
Spot has always made sending money to your friends and family, quick and painless. What if we told you that paying at merchants could be just as simple? The best part is that you don’t have to pull out your wallet or waste your hard-earned bucks drawing cash to make a purchase. All you need is your cell phone and let’s face it, that’s with you all the time.
There are two ways that you can use Spot to pay at a merchant:
1. sit down payments
If you’re enjoying a meal at a sit-down restaurant, like Primi… simply open the Spot app and scan the QR code at the bottom of your bill.
Click the Spot button and select “pay a merchant” button.
The app will open the merchant payment QR code scanner.
You can then scan the QR code on the bill.
The bill information will then be shown.
You can choose to add a description to the payment. Then click “pay”.
Enter your Spot PIN to finalise the payment.
After you’ve entered your PIN, Spot will process the payment.
This is the successful payment screen.
This is the failed transaction screen. You can select to try again.
2. over the counter payments
The over the counter payments can happen in 2 ways. The teller will either scan the QR code that is generated inside the Virgin Money Spot app or they will need to enter the 7-digit number that is under the QR code generated. The teller will enter or scan the code using their Point of Sale system to process the transaction.
Select the Spot button.
Select the “or show code” option on the screen.
Add a message to describe your payment.
Ensure to select the source of your payment (card or wallet).
Enter your Spot PIN. Once entered, Spot will initiate the over the counter.
There are two ways that the teller can enter the WiCodes:
Allow the cashier to scan the QR code on your screen with the scanner/camera.
Or the cashier can enter the 7-digit wiCode number manually if they don’t have a scanner/camera.
You see? Paying with Spot is easy peasy lemon squeezy. Check out our cash back partners page in the app to see how much cashback you can get at each store.
