Airopay has delved into the digital payments business in Nigeria to ensure that cashless payments are efficient since customers get frustrated and stranded at various pay points.

As a payment infrastructure solution, Airopay allows its users, both individuals and businesses in Africa and around the world, to transact locally and internationally from the comfort of their mobile devices.

It was designed as a one-stop app to enable payments for users when at home or abroad as it provides users the ability to directly pay bills in Nigeria, make transfers and also receive cash regardless of their geographical locations at super fast speed all from a mobile phone.

Speaking on the app, Airopay Chief Executive Officer, Mr CharlesJohn Oyakhilome, shared that the whole idea of the app is to digitize payments in Africa and beyond. “The ultimate goal of the brand is to make mobile payments across borders very easy’’, he said.

The Director of Strategy and Business Growth, Mr Kelechi Mbah, stated that Airopay has many unique services to offer in the Fintech space as we are set to ensure a life made easy. While it may look like the market is saturated, there are still many gaps which Airopay has carefully designed its services to fill.

Also, the Airopay App is set to give the general public a unique experience of ease and swiftness for both international and local fund transfers with zero per cent downtime!

Furthermore, the platform will provide economic empowerment for entrepreneurs, merchants and retailers.

Mr Adedayo Johnson, the Chief Financial Officer said, “Our users will enjoy an unbeatable interest rate of 16 per cent on savings, access to loans within 24 hours and bill payment transactions, different from what the general public has experienced.”

First crafted in 2014, Airopay systems have been developed to include several layers of transaction security for a users’ peace of mind.

Furthermore, the app is designed with Azure security centers which aid with detecting and blocking cyber security threats. The framework is secure from XML external entity injection also known as XXE as attackers cannot interfere with the application’s processing.

The Airopay brand officially launched into the Nigeria market on November 24, 2020, having recently signed Richard Mofe-Damijo (RMD) as the brand ambassador. The launch generated awareness and rightly positioned the Airopay app as a platform known for speed, ease, convenience and trust.

Users will be able to easily fund, withdraw, save, transfer money and pay for goods and services (locally or internationally) with their mobile devices.

Airopay Mobile Money accommodates deposits and withdrawals, including cardless ATM withdrawals, transfer between accounts, domestic remittances, third party or non-registered user deposits to accounts, payment of utility bills (including water, electricity, PayTV ), purchase of flight tickets for local and international flights, international and local airtime top up, payment of tuition for 100+ educational institutions, international and local fund transfers, bill payments for betting, lottery and games at zero per cent downtime.

Other services offered include termination of international remittances to wallet, QR code supported retail and merchant payments and registration of any payment card on the end-user application for recharge and QR code supported retail payment systems.
