03 May M-Pesa for Online Payment for Multinational eCommerce Companies

We are inspired by a magnificent article that clearly shows the uniqueness of M-Pesa for online payment for multinational companies.

The writer says nowhere in the world is it easier to hail and pay for a cab than in Kenya where people are used to using M-Pesa and it is ubiquitous and pervasive.  The de facto payment method of the region which means that there is interoperability.

More than 80% of the population use it to pay for goods and services.  And it’s not like Europe where there are a myriad of different mobile payment methods that are fighting for supremacy and where active use of a method is a fraction of the number of people who signed up for it.

M-Pesa can now be used by global and European multinational web merchants to sell to Kenyan consumers easily and economically, opening up a brand new market for digital services using a trusted provider like African Payment Solutions who has 15 years experience in the online payments industry and a solid processing engine link to thousands of merchants and more than 70 banks worldwide.

Apparently the total number of global mobile money transactions is only double the number in Kenya alone.  And most of those are done by Kenyans paying with M-Pesa.

So global merchants can’t afford to miss out on this fast growing African consumer market.  They can now sell online to Kenyan consumers and get paid online with M-Pesa which is the pervasive local payment method.

Mobile phones in Kenya are not just for speaking.  They are for transacting.  They are the backbone of the Kenyan economy.  They are the channel and transacting medium for global companies to sell to Kenyan consumers.
