Visa has announced a partnership with Pesapal, a secure way for individuals and businesses to make and accept payments in Africa.

This collaboration is meant to enable both parties to drive connected digital payments to consumers and businesses in Africa. Pesapal has created Africa’s only payments ecosystem that offers ecommerce, POS, and consumer applications on one platform. The company recruits and supports businesses to be able to digitise payment collection securely, while integrating to business internal systems such as POS, ERP, accounting, and billing systems. By integrating businesses, Pesapal is able to drive consumer payments to the merchants on the same platform.

The Visa strategic partnership will enable more small businesses to accept Visa payments across different form factors: Visa QR, MPos, Mini POS, and POS. By leveraging Visa’s capabilities, African businesses will enjoy a world-class connected payments experience. For consumers, this partnership means that all users of Pesapal Mobile will be able to use universal Visa QR capabilities and then Visa Token Service to make contactless payments.
