POP now offers instant online registration – a first in the local payments landscape!

June 14, 2022

In keeping with its mission to bring value to users by making payments effortless, accessible and secure, POP is proud to announce that anyone – Bank One customers and non-customers alike – can now download and register online for POP instantly, from the comfort of their home!

This is another first from the POP ecosystem! Over the past few months, we have noticed a keen interest from non-Bank One customers to embark on this exciting journey along with us. Our teams have worked hard to deploy this new feature to facilitate the customer onboarding process that no longer requires a visit to a branch. POP is definitely the only app you need to manage all your bank accounts from one place and we cannot wait to announce new features and benefits over the coming months,” says Bhavya Shah, Head of Personal Financial Services at Bank One.

Prior to launching the digital registration feature, non-Bank One customers had to walk in to a Bank One branch, or meet a POP team member in specific locations, such as Intermart, in order to complete their registration process. A 100% digital payment solution is now finally a reality in Mauritius where new users can now open account at their convenience!

About POP

POP was launched on 30 September 2021 as the very first universal mobile payment solution in Mauritius. The launching of POP by Bank One is a huge technological leap as digital payments are now both accessible and affordable via a smartphone to anyone having a bank account in Mauritius. POP leverages on the MauCAS payment network, owned by the Bank of Mauritius, which aims to make e-commerce, banking and mobile payments inter-operable. It offers a delightful user experience to individuals and a low-cost acquiring platform to merchants. In a few simple steps, customers are able to connect their bank accounts and use POP to make payments across banks instantly, share bills or pay merchants using any MauCAS QR code or a phone number at no cost to them. Meanwhile Merchants are able to manage their transactions around the clock in real time and offer a universal digital payment solution to their customers at a fraction of the cost they would normally pay, and without any new investment.
