Digital vouchers are fast-growing in popularity as they are delivered in real-time, can be redeemed instantly, and carry a much lower risk than using a credit/debit card for online purchases. And for added security, each voucher features a unique PIN code, much like how store-bought airtime works.
In the case of businesses, digital vouchers are an excellent marketing driver to maximise customer engagement and loyalty. At the same time, clients can benefit from incentives like inbuilt discounts and a host of other rewards for consistent purchase support.
However, vouchers also pose risks for businesses in the form of unprofitable customer abuse and fraudulent dealing. On the customer’s side, unfair pricing structures might be hidden. This is why it’s important to choose your voucher platforms wisely, with a clear understanding of both the benefits and the risks.
This article analyses the three best online voucher platforms available to South Africans that guarantee security and offer an assortment of great benefits.
1. OTT Voucher
OTT Voucher, a CliqueFin company, offers a wide range of redemption partners and participating retailers across the country.
With more than 96,000 formal and informal retail stores, service stations, and local shops listed, OTT provides a smooth, user-friendly payment option for cash customers to shop online. So, no matter what you’re purchasing, cash users will save in the long run.
Focused on empowering the 85% of South Africans who prefer to use cash or have no choice but to use cash, OTT Voucher provides an easy to use method for bridging the gap between cash and online shopping. OTT makes online transactions available to cash customers who would otherwise miss out on the many outstanding deals limited to online buyers in the digital world.
With denomination values ranging between R5 and R5,000, buying options are extensive. 100% of the voucher’s value is instantly available – and there are no hidden fees. In addition, OTT Voucher also offers high-value periodical promotions and cash giveaways through its competitions partner “Second Chance” which is an instant rewards platform. This benefits all participants and makes OTT the premier platform of choice.
