EziPay, a top intra-African remittances and digital wallet company, has patnered with Africa’s leading digital payment gateway, MFS Africa, to create a last-mile connectivity solution for remittances and collections to and from mobile money wallets and bank accounts in Africa.
The partnership comes at a time when mobile money is expanding rapidly in the African continent, with businesses and individuals requiring solutions that enable them to conduct transactions across multiple regions.
Dare Okoudjou, the Founder and CEO of MFS Africa, explained in a statement shared with Technext that the partnership is in line with the company’s objective of assisting businesses of all sizes and that it will aid in achieving the interoperability it desires.
“At MFS Africa, it has always been important to us to help businesses of all sizes scale by building a network hub and partner ecosystem that shares these values,” Dare Okoudjou said.
“Partnering with EziPay, an organisation known for providing digital wallets for inward and outward remittance to MSMEs, SMEs and individuals across continents, made complete sense to enable further the interoperability we aim to achieve through our acquisitions and partnerships,” he continued.
EziPay is present in 14 African countries and boasts of a global user base of over 300,000 personnel, including individuals in the diaspora and those in the local expat community who use its digital wallets for both inward and outward remittances. The award-winning company’s global wallet Mauritius offering is now live, with payout corridors in over 90 countries.
Amit Gaur, Co-Founder and CEO of EziPay, Amit Gaur, stated that he is confident this partnership would allow customers to have instant remittances for goods and services.
“I firmly believe that with the MFS Africa partnership, our customers will have instant remittances to bank accounts and wallets across Africa for our ever growing customer base,” he said.
“With EziPay and MFS Africa joining hands to solve cross continent remittances to Africa from Asia, Europe, the UK and the USA, remittances for goods, services, school fees, medical transfers, business transfers, family maintenance allowances, and P2P transfers will be enabled.”
MFS Africa has opened up more opportunities, connections, and interoperability for people and businesses. The company’s complete digital payments network connects over 400 million mobile money wallets, over 200 million bank accounts, and over 120,000 agents in Nigeria.
“As Africa’s mobile money landscape continues to evolve, we hope that entrepreneurs will be able to take their businesses to the next level through partnerships like these. Ultimately, we hope that it will lead to not only a more connected Africa but also a more connected world,” Okoudjou concluded.
The primary objective of this partnership is to bridge the gap between the diverse regions and enable transactions across the continent. This move will boost entrepreneurs and encourage them to take their businesses to the next level. The ultimate aim is to create a more connected Africa and the world.
