Nigerians have flooded Twitter with excitement over the new partnership between the country’s $1bn fintech company, Flutterwave and United States payments giant, Paypal.
The collaboration between both companies would allow businesses in Africa to receive payments from over 377 million PayPal users across the world, according to Flutterwave’s CEO, Olugbenga Agboola, fondly called GB.
Flutterwave’s Head, Branding and Storytelling, Yewande Akomolafe-Kalu on Tuesday added that the partnership “is going to change everything, it is going to turn African businesses into global businesses.”
In a nutshell, the integration with PayPal which is now live and operational across 50 African countries and worldwide would enable small business owner(s) and freelancers who use Flutterwave in places like Kenya, South Africa, Egypt, Morocco, Mauritius, Malawi, Mozambique and Senegal accept payments from PayPal users worldwide.
The development has received a warm reception on Twitter as it shoots to the top trending topic on Twitter NG with over 90,000 tweets.
Reacting to the news, @meettheRichard, said, “No more asking ‘Abeg you get PayPal’? Flutterwave has linked with PayPal and it’s a big win for most African businesses.”
Another Twitter user, @iamseunalaofin shared his excitement with the partnership which he believes solves problems for many Nigerians and Africans.
“Businesses are expected to solve problems and flutterwave partnering with PayPal is definitely going to ease payment worries for many Nigerians and Africans at large.
“Nigeria is blessed with numerous problem solvers. Packs of fearless energy drink to Flutterwave management!”
In the same vein, @NotJustSalmanPR also joined the train and is positive that Flutterwave will be the biggest innovation out of Nigeria.
“If it’s not solving a problem, its not an innovation. Flutterwave is on its way to become the biggest innovation out of Nigeria while taking out Africa’s financial problems. So no more PayPal Wahala and we can now receive international money with ease.”
