03 July 2024

Safaricom has announced a strategic partnership with CNET to integrate Safaricom’s M-PESA mobile money payment system with CNET’s POS technology, enabling merchants to utilize M-PESA services seamlessly.

The integration will ensure that M-PESA customer-initiated payments, merchant-initiated transactions, and QR code payment services are available at each merchant outlet using CNET’s systems. This development is expected to significantly enhance the digital payment landscape in Ethiopia, making transactions more convenient for both consumers and businesses.

“This partnership is a significant step forward in our commitment to empower Ethiopia through digital financial services. By combining the strengths of Safaricom and CNET, we will be able to develop new and enhanced digital payment products that cater to the evolving needs of our customers, from individual consumers to small and medium-sized enterprises,” said Paul Kavavu, chief digital financial services officer, Safaricom Ethiopia.
