Minister Steven Martina visited the Merkado Fresku on Saturday, 25th of July to experience the launch of the CHIP mobile payment app and see firsthand how the system worked for customers and vendors at Hofi Kalabash.
“That was easy!” was the first reaction of Minister Martina after making his first purchase using CHIP.
The CHIP team was present to introduce attendees and vendors to the new payment app and helped many digitize their money and pay with CHIP. Providing a safe and efficient solution for such events, CHIP will be introduced across the island to provide a cashless solution and convenience to merchants and consumers alike.
The Minister also mentioned, “that was fast” upon his 2nd transaction, since his experience only became better using the app like the 60+ users and merchants who downloaded CHIP on the spot, which was used for up to 100 transactions at the market.
“It was a busy day” at the market and we managed to signup various users who were impressed with the ease of use of the app. All in all, a good day for entrepreneurship and a good day for the digital economy” said Rachid Blanken and David Levy Maduro of the Chip team.
