Stripe Launching In The Africa Region This Year?

Stripe, the popular technology company which allows individuals and businesses to receive payments over the internet recently posted a job listing that would suggest that they’re gearing for a launch in the African region.

At the moment, the payment processing company is available in the US, Europe, and parts of South America but hasn’t expanded to any African country yet.
