Users don't need to be Fica'ed to open the account, and the company also said that the accounts can be used in shoprite, checkers and Usave stores for any transaction.

The company is planning to pay their employees using those accounts, with them encouraging other companies to pay employees using these accounts.

General manager of financial services at Shoprite, Jean Olivier, said that they don't want to compete with the banks . He also said that the supermarket giant is planning to partner with a local bank in order to meet Financial Intelligence Center Act requirements.

Olivier announced the future plans of the accounts including online shopping beyond their group of stores, with the likes of Computicket and OK furniture store included.
