community business

We provide innovative point-of-sale technology and business support to retail locations and entrepreneurs, primarily in the informal market. By providing business owners with the means to sell value added services to their customers, we create touch points for virtual products in informal communities.

This represents an opportunity for people to save time and money they would otherwise be spending on transport to reach formal retailers. With hundreds of thousands of physical locations, our network is now the largest of its kind in Africa.

Our footprint means a Flash enabled shop is almost always within walking distance and offers uniquely broad product options, increasing foot traffic and profits for shop owners.

Flash’s purpose of “Making People’s Lives Easier” is a powerful motivator and driver of growth that transforms our business beyond simply making profit.

We are all in.

We Are All In means that we take pride in everything we do. We care intensely about our fellow colleagues and Flash’s success.

We have each other’s backs.

We have an authentic culture where people really care for one another and show up to support their peers every day.

We are brave.

Being Brave is about going outside of your personal comfort zone to grow. We take (smart) risks, we change, and we push boundaries.

Corporate Social Investment

Making a difference with a smile

We believe in affecting positive change from the ground up – that’s why we’ve partnered up with Operation Smile South Africa (OSSA). Throughout OSSA’s charitable endeavours, they’ve impacted the lives of countless children, one in particular – a young girl named Marceline.
