Interswitch, Opay to boost digital payment experience

Interswitch has announced a collaboration with OPay through its Interswitch Payment Gateway (IPG).

This integration enables OPay users to seamlessly make direct payments for goods and services on merchants’ websites from their OPay wallet balance, according to a statement.

This strategic alliance aims to redefine the digital payment experience, providing users with a secure and frictionless payment solution.

The incorporation of OPay into the suite of checkout payment options on the IPG adds a new layer of convenience for users, complementing the existing array of payment methods such as Card, Quickteller, Transfer, QR, and USSD.

Muyiwa Asagba, managing director of Digital Commerce & Merchant Acquiring (Paymate) at Interswitch, emphasised the significance of this partnership in advancing the growth of digital payments in the country.

He stated, “At Interswitch, our commitment is to cater to the evolving needs of consumers and merchants, fostering a more inclusive and dynamic digital payment ecosystem. Through our latest collaboration with OPay, we are excited to introduce a new dimension of payment convenience to users and merchants.

“This partnership reflects our dedication to introducing innovations that enhance the digital payment experience, and we are eager to witness the positive impact it will have on the entire payment ecosystem.”

Elizabeth, vice-president of App and Cards underlines that OPay remains focused on its commitment to making financial services more inclusive through technology hence the partnership with Interswitch to deliver an innovative payment solution.

The Pay with OPay product is a 2-step process that will bring an extremely convenient payment experience, a closed-loop solution that is secure, with a 100 percent success rate and stable network uptime.

This cutting-edge solution affirms our customer-first and pure excellence in innovation with high adoption within the web payment sector. Interswitch urges both customers and merchants to embrace this transformative feature, capitalising on the convenience, security, and flexibility it brings.
