With its 14 million subscribers base, Etisalat Nigeria says the new product is a more convenient and secure platform which will allow subscribers’ easy access to their preferred mobile money scheme for conducting secure money transfers and payments.

The new commerce platform offers subscribers a new experience as it proffer access to multiple schemes and banks through an innate user interface. The interface is available in Nigeria basic native languages, Hausa, Igbo and Yoruba as well as English language and can be accessible on any type of mobile phone, even the most basic types.
The application allow users to pay bills and pay for goods and services, receive and send money to friends and family, withdraw cash, top up their own airtime account or for someone else and also have access to manage their bank accounts.
The mobile commerce service is developed in line with the strategy of including unbanked and under-banked customers into regulated financial services. It will help drive financial inclusion in the country while expanding Etisalat subscriber base.
“With a potential customer base of over 180 million people in Nigeria, many of whom have never had access to formal financial services; we believe that mobile commerce has important consequences for the future of banking in Africa and globally.
