Stanbic Bank on Friday launched a Point of Sales (POS) merchant device at the Palace Shopping Mall in Accra to enable holders of its electronic cards to make payments for goods and services.
The device, which would be rolled out in a lot of shopping centres where Stanbic Bank has presence, is also aimed at enhancing the use of electronic cards for payment of goods and services.
According to the bank, the introduction of the devices would offer cutting-edge banking to clients and convenience since the bank would send daily statements to enhance reconciliation of accounts.
Nana Dwemoh Benneh, Head of Personal and Business Banking at Stanbic, in a remark, said the devices were not stationary.
