Zeepay has announced a partnership with Visa that will allow users abroad to send money directly onto Visa debit and prepaid cards in Ghana.
Zeepay will integrate Visa’s real-time push payments solution Visa Direct, with Instntmny, its money transfer platform, to provide users of the Zeepay app the ability to receive money and remittances directly into their eligible card.
The initial deployment phase will commence across Zeepay’s European and North American corridors and then expand to all major corridors globally.
Dede Quarshie, Chief Commercial Officer at Zeepay, speaking about the service said: “The service will immediately be available to over 2 million Visa cardholders in Ghana. We believe this service will further deepen our financial inclusion drive across Ghana and Africa at large.
The strategy is to present the consumer with various options for receiving remittances from abroad including Visa debit and prepaid cards, mobile money wallets, ATMs, and Bank accounts. Our omnichannel approach makes Zeepay the preferred partner for remittance payout.”
“We are delighted to bring this service to Ghanaians, and we would like to thank our banking partners – ADB and GTBank for all the support,” Ms. Quarshie added.
“Championing the fintech community and our partners to drive the next generation of digital payments is core to our growth strategy at Visa,” said Adoma Peprah, Country Manager, Visa Ghana.
“We are excited about our strategic collaboration with Zeepay, which will open new doors for meeting the needs of today’s consumer and continue to contribute to the betterment of the global payments ecosystem.”
