Flutterwave integrates with PayPal to support seamless African payments

Jumia Black Friday Deals

Flutterwave was just in the news for achieving a unicorn status after getting a US$1 billion valuation and they are not even resting on their oars. As of the time of this writing, the African payment processor has integrated with PayPal to allow merchants and individuals receive PayPal payments from all around the world.

It should be noted that while PayPal boasts a base of more than 300 million users, most of those people are outside Africa. This is also affecting African merchants and individuals seeking to get payments from abroad as most of their payers will prefer to use the PayPal option.

As of now, that won’t be an issue anymore.

PayPal has yet to issue any official statement on why it is not natively supporting African countries. Even for the select few on its list, it is mostly a one-sided operation where they allow the making of payments but not receipt. Thanks to Flutterwave, anyone with a PayPal account can now pay a Flutterwave user via the ‘Pay via PayPal’ button.

This further cements the plans of the company to make payments seamless across Africa while connecting the continent to the rest of the world also.
