The retail industry in South Africa is a vibrant and competitive sector that caters to a diverse consumer base. With a mix of local and international brands, the industry is characterized by a wide range of retail formats, including malls, standalone stores, and online platforms. However, the industry faces challenges such as inefficient payment systems, evolving customer expectations, and the need to prioritize hygiene, especially in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.


The SP930, a state-of-the-art portable payment device from Newland Payment, has successfully addressed the prevalent challenges faced by the retail shopping industry in South Africa. Let's explore three key problems and how the SP930 helped resolve each of them:

1. Inefficient Payment Systems

The retail industry in South Africa has often grappled with slow and cumbersome payment processes, leading to longer queues and dissatisfied customers. Dashpay recognized this pain point and used the deployment of SP930 to transform  the checkout experience. With its high-speed transaction processing and versatile connectivity options, including 4G and Wi-Fi, the SP930 ensures rapid and secure payments, reducing transaction times and enhancing customer satisfaction. The success of the SP930 lies in its reliable and efficient payment processing capabilities, enabling retailers to provide seamless and convenient payment experiences to their customers.

2. Evolving Customer Expectations

In an era of evolving customer expectations, retailers must stay ahead by offering innovative and engaging experiences. The SP930 addresses this challenge by integrating cutting-edge features such as NFC and contactless payments. By supporting popular payment methods like mobile wallets and contactless cards, the SP930 caters to the preferences of modern consumers who seek fast, secure, and convenient payment options. This enables retailers to enhance customer satisfaction, boost transaction efficiency, and stay at the forefront of the retail industry's digital transformation.

3. Hygiene and Safety Concerns

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, hygiene and safety have become paramount in the retail shopping industry. Newland Payment, in collaboration with Dashpay, responded to this challenge by developing an automated UV sanitizer specifically for the SP930. This innovative solution ensures the highest levels of hygiene by effectively sanitizing the payment device after each use. By implementing this feature, retailers using the SP930 can prioritize customer safety, instil confidence, and demonstrate their commitment to maintaining a clean and hygienic environment for both staff and customers.


Building on the success of the SP930, Dashpay and Newland are committed to introducing more advanced products to the South African market. Their future roadmap includes a range of hardware and cloud-based solutions that will further enhance payment experiences, drive operational efficiency, and support the evolving needs of the retail industry. By harnessing emerging technologies and customer insights, Dashpay and Newland aim to empower retailers in South Africa to stay ahead of the competition, adapt to changing consumer demands, and deliver exceptional shopping experiences.
