South African supermarket chain Shoprite is making a strong push into financial services with its recently-launched Money Market accounts which don’t charge monthly fees, load fees, or transaction fees. Business Insider reports that Shoprite itself is planning to pay 130,000 employees through Money Market accounts in the future, and is preparing to allow public employers to pay salaries into the accounts, which it thinks could also be a good vehicle for government’s welfare payments. The accounts can be used to make payments for any transactions in a Shoprite, Checkers or Usave store and the company is in the process of partnering with a local bank – which it declined to name – in order to allow customers to make in-store cash withdrawals from their Money Market accounts by early next year.
