Flutterwave, the African payments technology firm, has announced that it has received Payment Services Provider and Payments Facilitator licenses in Egypt.
The licenses will enable Flutterwave to act as an official payment service provider in the country, collect payments on behalf of its customers and settle payments locally and globally. These licences will allow Flutterwave to deploy Flutterwave for a Business suite of products including store, payment links, invoices, and checkout in Egypt.
CEO and Founder of Flutterwave, Olugbenga Agboola, said: “We are proud to have been granted the Payment Services Provider and Payment Facilitator licenses in Egypt, which form part of our international expansion strategy. This is a testament to our commitment to providing first-class payment services, seamlessly connecting businesses to their customers.

The licenses will enable us to be the go-to payment processor and digital transformation partner for global settlements in Egypt, which enables our customers to expand quickly within or outside of the country. This, for us, is the beginning of other strategic wins in the North Africa and Middle East regions.”
