A payment solution designed to make your learning world a lot more convenient. FundiCard is our innovative, cashless payment technology that is trusted by educational institutions and over 2570 retail outlets. The FundiCard is like a debit card, but with various pockets to manage your spending on and off campus. The pockets ensure you do not overspend and still have money for textbooks, accommodation, food and study tools.

Going cashless is the future of payments in schools. FundiPay provides a safe and convenient alternative to carrying cash, by enabling parents or sponsors to transfer money into a learners account, to make payments for school-related items like tuck-shop food, school uniforms, events and more. Students can then use FundiPay to make payments with a tap of their FundiPay wristband, FundiCard or using the Digital Card.
