Zapper app is the rewarding way to pay by phone

Zapper is a mobile app that makes payments and e-commerce quick, simple and secure for retail and catering operators and could make sense for garden centres.


More than 13,000 businesses across the UK, Europe, Africa and the US already use it, with a claimed 1 million-plus consumer downloads of the app. Zapper lets users pay quickly and securely with their mobile phone, collect loyalty points and instantly redeem vouchers, all when they press ‘pay’. Users can also leave feedback via the app, about their dining or shopping experience to help businesses improve their service.


Enabled by using the Zapper app to scan a unique QR code, the bill is instantly uploaded to the user’s smartphone for secure payments, bill splitting, tipping, voucher redemption, loyalty rewards and review features. Zapper enbles businesses to create bespoke promotions and reward loyalty through in-app offers, push notifications and beacon technology.


Current Zapper partners include Spar, Nisa, Booker and Londis and even a number of UK local authorities.


You can find out more by email  or call the UK enquiry line 0333 370 4414.
