Stanbic Bank, Mandela Group Partner to Launch Cashless Payments


Stanbic Bank Uganda and the Mandela Group are making it easier and more convenient for customers to enjoy cashless purchases using their debit or credit cards at any Café Javas, City Oil, Savers or City Tyres outlets.

The “Go Cashless” campaign kicks off today, with a 30-day promotion where customers will stand a chance to win amazing prizes.

Speaking at the press launch, Roselyn Najjuma, Stanbic’s Head of Products said, “We are pleased to be partnering with the Mandela Group to provide customers with greater flexibility and a seamless way to make their purchases at their favourite Mandela Group outlets. By using any debit or credit card, customers can confidently carry out transactions without the inconvenience of carrying cash.”

“We are excited about our partnership with Stanbic Bank, for the next 30 days every purchase of Ugx 50,000 and above made at any Café Javas, City Oil, Savers or City Tyres outlet using one’s Credit or Debit Card will be rewarded with a guaranteed prize on the spot. Once you complete the transaction, you’ll be given free shopping vouchers,” Venkatesh Kumar, the General Manager of Mandela Group said, commenting on the campaign.

How it works

When making purchases at any Café Javas, City Oil, Savers or City Tyres outlet, one simply presents their Debit or Credit Card.

It is then swiped by an attendant using a Point of Sale machine where they will be required to enter a PIN (Personal Identification Number) privately to complete the transaction.

Once the transaction is carried out (usually within seconds), one will receive a receipt confirming the amount of money withdrawn from their bank account, as well as an SMS message via mobile phone confirming the transaction.
