Flutterwave, an African unicorn in payments technology has announced the addition of Google Pay – a mobile payment service developed by Google to its portfolio of payment options for merchants and customers on their service platform.
In a recent press release, the company explained that this collaboration with Google’s payment service will offer a safe and seamless payment option for merchants as well as a convenient checkout experience for paying customers.
This new feat by Flutterwave is coming off the heels of another payment solution integration – that of eNaira announced earlier in the month.

What is Google Pay
Google Pay is a mobile payment service developed by Google to power in-app, online, and in-person contactless purchases. It enables users to make payments with their mobile phones, tablets, or watches. And users can authenticate their transactions via a PIN, passcode, or biometrics such as 3D face scanning or fingerprint recognition.
Commenting on this great feat, Olugbenga Agboola, the founder and CEO of Flutterwave said, “The continued and rapid growth of Flutterwave is due to our commitment to building a platform with simplified payments for everyone. The GooglePay payment option will attract more international customers and increase the current success rates for businesses on Flutterwave. Integrating with Google pay will allow users across the globe to participate in the booming e-commerce ecosystem in Africa. It will enable us to further fulfill our promise of creating endless possibilities for all.”
