Concious Spending Made Easy

Aplauz empowers people to make conscious spending online. The voucher is prepaid at convenience stores and holds a digital credit value chosen by the customer. While paying with Aplauz, only this value can be spent, and the user is protected from misuse or fraud because it holds no personal data.

How the payment method works

Customers buy vouchers with a 16 digit code in stores. When they select Aplauz as a payment method at an ecommerce website, they will enter their 16 digit code and the amount will be transferred from their voucher balance to the online merchant.

Target market

Merchants: digital goods and services, gaming, entertainment, content, social media, VIOP, telephony
