Flutterwave, the African payments technology company, now offers the mobile payment service Google Pay as a payment option for its merchant customers.

Google Pay will serve as an additional payment option for merchants on Flutterwave for business. It can be used to make contactless payments in store, and also payments in apps and online.

Olugbenga ‘GB’ Agboola, fonder and CEO of Flutterwave, said: “The continued and rapid growth of Flutterwave is due to our commitment to building a platform with simplified payments for everyone. The Google Pay payment option will attract more international customers and increase the current success rates for businesses on Flutterwave.

“Integrating with Google Pay will allow users across the globe to participate in the booming e-commerce ecosystem in Africa. It will enable us to further fulfill our promise of creating endless possibilities for all.”

The addition of Google Pay follows Flutterwave’s announcement last week that it had added Nigeria’s eNaira digital currency as a payment option for merchants.

The firm, which has an infrastructure reach in over 34 African countries, including NigeriaUgandaSouth Africa, was also recently granted a Switching and Processing Licence by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) in order to offer transaction switching and card processing services to customers.

While back in August, it revealed it had hired 200 trainees, growing its employee base by 38 per cent.
