09 Dec What’s Happening with Online Payments Across Africa? Bill is Here Already, Zuk and JackM Have Been Here Too, and Now JackD’s Coming!

Bill and Melinda’s social venturing for financial inclusion is investing in paytech with the intention of connecting 320m more Africans to digital financial services, one success being Mowali that came out of Mojaloop.  

Zuk and Co are investing in hubs and the man himself did an African tour way back to visit the homeland of his 140m fans, most of whom use Facebook on their mobile.  Frustrated with the progress of Libra, here comes Facebook Pay to provide African people with a convenient, secure and consistent payment experience across Facebook, Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp.  

According to a conversation with Bloomberg, recently retired Jack of Alibaba fame sees eCommerce as Africa’s big business opportunity after his recent Africa tour. 

And now the visionary Jack behind Twitter and Square is coming to stay for 3 to 6 months as he feels Africa is the next frontier.

More about JackD’s thoughts in our next blog.
