Government is offering grocery gift cards to encourage Covid-19 vaccination among elderly in South Africa

Globally, different governments are offering their citizens several incentives, including gift cards to boost the vaccination rate in their respective countries. Similar trends are visible in South Africa, where the Department of Health announced grocery gift card program in November 2021. Notably, the gift card program aims to encourage the elderly to get themselves vaccinated in the country. Through the gift card program, the health department is aiming to achieve 70% vaccination coverage among the older age group before December 2021.

The pilot scheme, which is valued at R26 million, is designed to benefit 260,000 consumers over the age of 60. Initially, the grocery gift card vouchers were announced for consumers aged 60 above. However, the Department of Health extended the offer of R100 grocery gift cards to consumers aged 50 above. The recipient of the grocery gift card can redeem the vouchers at Shoprite, Checkers, and U-Save stores.

Bitrefill partners with physical stores to enable crypto purchases through gift cards in South Africa

The popularity of cryptocurrencies has surged over the last few quarters in South Africa. With this surge in popularity, global payments are entering the South African market through strategic partnerships with physical stores that allow consumers to pay for their purchases in crypto through gift vouchers. For instance,
• In November 2021, Bitrefill, the global payments firm, launched its services in South Africa. The firm allows consumers to convert their cryptocurrencies such as bitcoins into gift cards at the point-of-sale transactions. Since its launch in the country, Bitrefill has entered into strategic partnerships with several physical stores such as Pick n Pay, Cape Union Mart, Incredible Connection, and Toys R Us, among others.
• Apart from physical stores, the firm has partnered with online retailers as well including Mr Delivery, Grabitall, and Netflorist. The entry of Bitrefill in the South African market will allow consumers to pay using their bitcoins across several industries, including telcos, brick-and-mortar stores, as well as restaurants. Currently, Bitrefill offers support for major cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dash, Dogecoin, Litecoin, and USDT.

Increasing online sales is expected to drive the growth of the gift card market in South Africa

Over the last few quarters, online sales have surged significantly in South Africa. According to the report, online sales in the country increased by more than 65%. This growth in the e-commerce sector has supported the growth of digital payments, including gift cards in South Africa, over the last four to eight quarters.

With the e-commerce industry expected to continue its upward momentum, PayNXT360 projects the e-commerce market to further drive the adoption of gift cards among both consumers as well as retailers in South Africa. Notably, retailers in the country are expected to offer gift cards to consumers to drive more traffic to their online platform, thereby helping them with customer acquisition. All of these factors will subsequently boost the gift card market growth in the country from the short to medium-term perspective.
