The last couple of months have been interesting for us at Fliqpay. From joining the Techstars family,— to partnering with the Iranwo Foundation in helping to feed low-income families in self-isolation —to also partnering with blockchain company Conflux. It's been a thrilling experience so far.
Today, I am proud to announce that our cryptocurrency payment gateway is live. Starting from today, businesses in Africa can accept payment in cryptocurrencies, including; Bitcoin (BTC), US Dollar (USDT), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) and Ripple’s XRP.
With Fliqpay, your customers can pay you in either of the cryptocurrencies we have available today and you’ll receive credit in your local currency in 5 minutes or less. We are going live with support for several local currencies including; Nigerian Naira, Kenyan Shillings, Ghanaian Cedis, South African Rand, and Ugandan Shillings.
We have created a seamless payment gateway to help entrepreneurs, freelancers, and businesses to accept payment from anywhere in the world. Our solution is aimed at helping African businesses to expand where they can do business. From the entrepreneur that makes handmade Ankara bags in Lagos, Nigeria to the freelance graphics designer in Mombasa, Kenya, we view ourselves as a facilitator in driving business growth for African entrepreneurs and companies.
Before today, it could take up to 1 week for businesses in Africa to receive payment for products and services rendered, with the possibility of chargeback (if the customer disputes the transaction). This processing time and incidences of chargebacks hinder business growth and expansion.
This is why we’ve created an infrastructure that solves this problem for African businesses. By using Fliqpay, businesses will be able to receive payment in under 5 minutes.
Our solution is open to businesses of all sizes from freelancers to small business enterprises to large scale businesses.
While we are going live with our cryptocurrency payments gateway today, we are also waitlisting financial institutions to our cross border payment infrastructure that will enable them to receive value from anywhere in the world within an hour or less. Please sign up for the waitlist.
