A Kenyan-based tech firm in Nigeria, Cellulant, has rolled out a new digital payment platform that SMEs and Enterprise businesses can benefit from. The company has a partnership with Tinng, a digital payment platform enabling businesses to accept payments seamlessly from their customers.
Tinng has been in operations since 2019. As a company specialized in payment technologies, the firm has acted as an all-in-one, multi-functional consumer super app that lets users pay for different services from their mobile phones. Mainly, the app supports payments, financial services, and commerce in various aspects.
Companies such as StarTimes, Ethiopia Airlines, Kenya Airways, and others will find the use of these mobile payment methods invaluable. As a single integrated payment solution, Tinng is ready to solve all the problems associated with managing payments for businesses. It aims to make it easy for corporate bodies to collect and make payments with the best practices. Those making use of the app should find it easy to use, enabling massive customer satisfaction across Africa.
More than 70 percent of businesses on the continent are either small or medium-sized; most of them were designed to collecting payments in cash because there was less innovation towards collecting payments digitally. Therefore, Cellulant is catering to a payment solution that cares for the needs of businesses that want to create a better payment solution for customers.
Small and medium-sized businesses contribute about 48 percent of the GDP in Nigeria. The problem is that most of these lack the digital tools for transactions.
Buyers and consumers in Nigeria still have various ways of making payments. They make use of ATM cards, mobile money, bank transfer, and cash transactions. But the quest for digital payments is increasing in recent years. Tinng solves this problem by focusing on delivering a good user experience for the merchant and the customer.
