Flutterwave connects African merchants to Currencycloud

African payments firm Flutterwave is partnering with Currencycloud to accelerate the launch of its payment network in Europe and the US.

Currencycloud will allow Flutterwave merchants quick access to send and receive money transfers at a “significant scale”, said the partners, including allowing merchants to receive payments through channels other than debit cards.

Olugbenga Agboola, founder and CEO of Flutterwave, said: “This partnership marks our ongoing commitment to creating a payments infrastructure that links the world to Africa.

“Our shared value of simplifying payments, coupled with the speed with which we could launch into a new market leveraging Currencycloud APIs, were just a couple of the reasons why we partnered with them.”

David Heitzmann, vice president of sales and general manager of North America at Currencycloud, said: “Our goal is to reimagine the way money flows around the world. The partnership with Flutterwave is a great example of this and we are able to support their mission.

The Currencycloud API has now been incorporated into Flutterwave’s platform.
