Reading Time: 3 minutes

Despite the myriad of digital payment Apps in Africa, cashless payments are still not 100% efficient as customers still get frustrated and stranded at various pay points from time to time.

To ameliorate this problem, Airopay is the plug designed as a payment infrastructure solution that allows its users, both individuals and businesses in Africa and around the world to transact locally and internationally from the comfort of their mobile devices.

Airopay is designed as a one-stop app to enable payments for users when at home or abroad as it provides users the ability to directly pay bills in Nigeria, make transfers, and also receive cash regardless of their geographical locations at super fast speed all from a mobile phone.

Speaking on the app, Airopay Chief Executive Officer, Charles John Oyakhilome shared that  the whole idea of the app is to digitize payments in Africa and beyond. “The ultimate goal of the brand is to make mobile payments across borders very easy’’, he said.  

The Director of Strategy and Business Growth, Kelechi Mbah stated that Airopay has many unique services to offer in the Fintech space as we are set to ensure a life made easy.
