Mobile payments company Paga has entered a partnership with Nigeria’s financial technology brand, Remita to allow payments across both companies and to make Federal Government bill payments available to all customers.
The first phase of the collaboration would allow Paga customers to easily make payments to all Remita billers and merchants right from Paga’s web channel, ‘paga.com’, or agent network.
This means that Paga’s agents across the country would be able to process end-to-end payments to all Remita customers from Paga’s platform.
The partnership aims at strengthening the fintech ecosystem at the same time making electronic payments more attractive and less stressful for customers.
Speaking on the matter, Co-founder and Director of Business Development at Paga Jay Alabraba said, “In our commitment to make payments easier for all Nigerians and businesses, we are pleased to collaborate with SystemSpecs. Our goal is to always provide an improved experience to our customers everywhere, by leveraging digital technology. This collaboration would further help us meet the needs of individuals who seek to make various bill payments, including those in emerging markets.”
Executive Director, Infrastructure and Payment Gateway at SystemSpecs, Ezinne Obikile said, “At SystemSpecs, we are committed to driving financial inclusion and providing convenience to customers everywhere, especially through strategic partnerships with key industry stakeholders that would facilitate easier access to a wide range of financial services and solutions from anywhere and at any time.”
The impact of the partnership is that individuals can easily generate Remita’s Retrieval Reference (RRR), make payments into the Federal Government’s Treasury Single Account, as well as payment to State Governments, Tertiary institutions on Remita and Organisations on Paga’s consumer and agent channels.
Paga is Nigeria’s leading mobile money company which enables people to digitally send and receive money while creating simple financial access for everyone.
