Abuja - Interswitch, Africa’s leading digital payments and commerce provider, has partnered with Visa to offer customers access to quick and easy payments on the multi-channel payment platform, Quickteller.

Following the partnership, Quickteller, the Interswitch platform, can now accept all Visa transactions through its platform.

Visa cardholders will now be able to use their cards to buy airtime, pay bills and transfer funds across all Quickteller channels while merchants on Quickteller can now expand their customer base by accepting all Visa card payments.

Speaking in Lagos, Akeem Lawal, Divisional CEO, Switching and Processing at Interswitch, said this new integration represented an exciting step forward for Interswitch as it fully repositions us as an Independent card processor.

Interswitch’s Quickteller platform is said to be the most popular online payment platform in Nigeria. Quickteller is the leading multi-channel payments platform in Nigeria with over 3 million subscribers offering airtime recharge, bill payments and funds transfer via Web, Mobile.

“Visa cardholders will be able to use their cards for the full range of payment services offered.  We are proud to partner with a globally recognized brand such as Visa as we continue to make everyday payments easy for our customers,” said Lawal.

Ade Ashaye, Country Director, for Visa in West Africa, said one of the primary goals of Visa in Nigeria was opening up the benefits of electronic payments through a number of different platforms in the bid to drive the government agenda of a cashless economy.

“We are delighted that from now on, our cardholders will be able to use Quickteller’s platform and its multi-channel offerings to make both physical and virtual transactions all over the country. The  partnership is further evidence of our dedication to constantly improve our offerings to our customers in Nigeria,” said Ashaye.
