E-commerce firm goAfrica integrates Finserve’s Jenga Payment Gateway solution on its platform

goAfrica has announced the integration of Finserve’s Jenga Payment Gateway solution on its platform.  

The London-based e-commerce platform says the new payment solution will enable buyers from across Africa to buy and pay for goods from merchants located in various markets in a fast, convenient and secure process.

“Buyers and sellers can now settle transactions in a fast and secure process. The Jenga Payment Gateway has further taken away the challenges of multi-currency and cross-border settlements that are associated with online trade,” said goAfrica Kenya GM, Boniface Munywoki.

Finserve introduced the Jenga Payment Gateway in 2018, making it possible for businesses to receive e-commerce and m-commerce payments from a host of payment channels such as American Express, Visa, MasterCard, Diners, JCB, Union Pay and other card associations from 180 countries, mobile wallets from 7 countries across East and Central Africa as well as from fintech players such as Alipay and Wechat.

“We have simplified integration for businesses with an online presence, be they large or small, allowing the companies to concentrate on their core business activities. Jenga Payment Gateway offers the widest payment options coupled with seamless integration, allowing customers to pay for goods using their preferred method, whether its debit or credit cards, mobile money or electronic wallets” said Finserve MD, Jack Ngare.

goAfrica says it is additionally working with Finserve to introduce other capabilities that will catalyse e-commerce trade.

Finserve provides API integrations that enable ecosystems in financial services, commerce, agriculture, wealth management and telcos to manage liquidity, payments and online transactions through innovative self-service tools, solutions and capabilities.

Jenga API provides businesses and tech developers with capabilities to integrate sending money, payments, banking, insurance, brokerage, wealth management and telco across 7 countries in East and Central Africa into mobile apps, e-commerce sites and other systems.
