EcobankPay Hits N1b Transactions

EcobankPay, the lifestyle digital payments and collections service of Ecobank Nigeria, has recorded transactions worth over N1 billion.

EcobankPay offers customers a multi-channel payment experience, including: Mobile QR Payment at merchant stores (mCash, Masterpass and mVisa).  Merchant QR is set up via Facebook Messenger as well as USSD payment for low-income phone users.

EcobankPay is used by businesses from small, informal micro merchants to large corporates as well as governments. It enables them to offer easy and convenient payment options to their customers in-store or online.

EcobankPay’s unique offering is such that bank customers can pay with Masterpass, mVisa, and mCash with any phone by scanning the QR code or using USSD at merchant locations.  It is free to set up, as the shop owner only needs his/her QR code and phone for notifications to start receiving quick and easy payments. EcobankPay is available at over 90,000 multiple merchant locations across the country, additional offerings include instant settlement of transaction with no transaction fees and it supports domestic and cross border transactions.

Announcing this in Lagos, Carol Oyedeji, Executive Director, Commercial Banking, Ecobank Nigeria, said the performance of EcobankPay underscores the choice of the bank in bringing digital payment solutions for safe, reliable and convenient transactions to customers and non-customers of the bank.

She added that the channel offers a distinct advantage of supporting the three main schemes: Masterpass, mVisa and mCash thereby broadening acceptability regardless of which bank a client makes payment from. The QR Code is much cheaper than having a point of sale (PoS) terminal and credit to the merchant is instant, she noted.
