Vivo Energy network of Shell branded service stations has looped in Visa acceptance points in selected sites to grow digital commerce in Africa.

The agreement is aimed at encouraging the development of a digital payments ecosystem for both individuals and businesses, who will see the new service adopted across 15 African countries, where the two companies operate.

According to The Star, almost 80% of most retail transactions are in cash, while the other 20% percent is mobile money and card transactions in the region.
