PIPC is a bi-annual event hosted by PASA (Payments Association of South Africa), the association responsible for managing payment systems in South Africa.
This international event presents a unique opportunity to the broader South African and SADC payments community to experience a world-class conference right on their own doorstep.
This two-day event provides a thought-provoking and insightful program with in-depth views from participants on the latest industry developments, applications and technologies.
Speaking on The Midday Report, PIPC Media Liason Marisa Oosthuizen says the focus of the event on Tuesday is financial inclusion within the payment industry.

Which basically means they don't have a bank account, they transacting just in cash using informal financial services.— Marisa Oosthuizen, PIPC Media Liason
