Summary

The prepaid cards market has slowly gained popularity in South Africa, as organized retailers and vendors began to accept prepaid cards, with no processing fee. Furthermore, hoteliers and vehicle rental vendors have also started to accept prepaid cards for their service transactions. In addition, convenience will be the most important driver of the adoption of prepaid cards in South Africa.

Demand from younger consumers is expected to play a vital role in the growth of the prepaid cards market over the forecast period. While simple eligibility criteria established by Nigerian banks is expected to support the sales of prepaid cards in the country. As the majority of Nigerians do not have a bank account, Nigerian banks have established simple eligibility criteria so that more people can easily benefit from prepaid cards. Moreover, The Central Bank of Nigeria has implemented a new policy in Lagos to reduce the amount of physical cash such as notes and coins in rotation in the economy, while encouraging electronic-based transactions for the payment of goods and services.

In Kenya, the prepaid card market is in its early stages of development and provides modest growth potential for new market entrants. A number of banks, including Kenya Commercial Bank, Investment and Mortgages Bank and Bank of Africa have begun to offer prepaid cards.
