Cellulant Zambia has signed an MoU with the Lusaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) to enable organisation members to accept payments from their customers’ mobile money wallets.
Cellulant’s payment platform, Tinggs integrates more than 290 banks across Africa, and is a one-stop payment aggregator for multinational corporations and SMEs. Tinggs uptake across Africa is on the rise and driven by in-store payments, as well as mobile banking using USSD and QR codes.
“Since Tinggs went live, we have over 700 stores across the country who can receive mobile money payments as well as review and reconcile all transactions via a single platform,” said Cellulant Zambia country manager Gilbert Lungu. “The unison of mobile payments negates the need to sign up to multiple payments providers and we will soon offer banks as an option, giving the consumers more choices from the comfort of their mobile phones.”
“Cellulant has bridged the digital payment gap. I’m delighted to note that businesses are migrating to technologies that will enhance efficiency and effectiveness in payment acceptance,” said Zambia’s minister of science and technology Felix Mutati.
