It is nearly impossible for businesses in some African countries to receive money from PayPal. While the payments giant has not given reasons why this is so, speculation hints at factors like insufficient regulation and poor banking security in said countries.
That might be a thing of the past for some businesses, as African payments company Flutterwave recently announced a collaboration with PayPal to allow PayPal customers globally to pay African merchants through its “Pay with PayPal” feature.
Via this partnership, African businesses can connect with the more than 377 million PayPal accounts globally and overcome the challenges presented by the highly fragmented and complex payment and banking infrastructure on the continent.
According to CEO Olugbenga “GB” Agboola, this will happen via a Flutterwave integration with PayPal so merchants can add PayPal as a payment option when receiving money outside the continent.
