Before now, to receive payment via PayPal for Africa businesses was an uphill task, but it seems that yoke has been lessen now as Flutterwave partners with PayPal to allow African merchants to accept payment via its platform.
Flutterwave today is announcing a collaboration with PayPal to allow PayPal customers globally to pay African merchants through its â€˜Pay with PayPalâ€™ feature.
Through this partnership, African businesses can connect with the more than 377 million PayPal accountsÂ globally and overcome the challenges presented by the highly fragmented and complex payment and banking infrastructure on the continent.
According to a statement by Flutterwave, the integration with PayPal is live and operational across 50 African countries and worldwide.
That means small business owners and freelancers who use Flutterwave in places like Kenya, South Africa, Egypt, Morocco, Mauritius, Malawi, Mozambique & Senegal will be able to accept payments from PayPal users worldwide.
The PayPal integration, in particular, opens African SMEs and freelancers up to more international demand.Â
