Flutterwave, a global payments solutions business based in Africa has collaborated with Visa to launch GetBarter.
This is an app that lets consumers and merchants to pay and collect payments home and abroad.
This GetBarter application is a lifestyle payment solution that functions globally with an existing user base in countries like South Africa, Kenya, Ghana and Nigeria.
Visa customers can now make payments within the confines of their homes, via the app and indulge in online payments by linking their card details to their GetBarter app profile while those that do not use the card can rely on generating a virtual Visa card after registration.
