EziPay and MFS Africa Team up to Enable Remittances Across Africa
Cross-border remittances and digital wallet company operating within Africa, EziPay has partnered with MFS Africa, a digital payments gateway to enable last-mile connectivity for remittances and collections to and from mobile money wallets and bank accounts in Africa.
There is a growth in the use of mobile money in Africa which has seen businesses and individuals incorporating solutions enabling them to transact across regions.
Speaking on the partnership, Dare Okoudjou, Founder and CEO at MFS Africa said, “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 same values. Partnering with EziPay, an organization that is known for providing digital wallets for inward and outward remittance to MSMEs, SMEs, and individuals across continents, made complete sense to further enable the interoperability we aim to achieve through our acquisitions and partnerships.”
EziPay has its presence registered in 14 African countries and can currently boast over 300,000 users including Africans in the diaspora. The organization’s global wallet Mauritius offering is currently live with over 90+ countries’ payout corridors. MFS Africa’s full-service digital payments network connects over 400 million mobile money wallets, over 200 million bank accounts, and over 120,000 agents in Nigeria.
Amit Gaur, Co-Founder, and CEO at EziPay 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. 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.”
“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 said.
