Mobile Payment for Everyone

ABOUT ZEEPAY

Zeepay Ghana Limited is a wholly Ghanaian owned Mobile Financial Services company focused on providing integrated mobile payments services with mobile wallets targeting the unbanked and banked population with the objective of bringing the unbanked into the financial stream and easing payments and collections for the banked population.

Zeepay facilitates the processing of multiple mobile phone payment transactions, and operates as a  aggregator that brings transaction of all players together on one single platform. The company’s core application runs on an open source technology, and it’s designed to integrate all types of payment platforms, banks, merchants, Mobile Network Operators (MNOs), and other companies with subscriber based transactions.

Zeepay’s objective is to include about 50% of the unbanked population through the provision of mobile financial services with retail enablement. While improving revenue mobilization for Government, Municipals, Insurance, Banks, Retail based organizations, and all relevant key stakeholders within the payments and collections ecosystem.

We provide a platform that accepts mobile money wallets, debit & loyalty cards, and cash at the point of sale along with operating as a store house for holding cash through mobile wallets for members.

Our Mobile Financial Services platform runs on an open source, giving us the ability to aggregate all modes of payments within Ghana and abroad. We do not compete with, but rather provide a means to payments and collections for both Retail partners and direct competitors. For competitors, our core mission is to expand their reach through varied partnerships hence the reason we pride ourselves as aggregators.

We are the first to go to market in Ghana with the “tap and pay” and the “click and send” service, offering two factor authentication as the minimum – which in Ghana is PIN and biometric, we use another factor which is near field communication.

Fast, Affordable and Reliable.

MISSION

At Zeepay our mission is to provide a fast, affordable, reliable and easy to use payments ecosystem in Ghana.

That is mobile agnostic and independent of Mobile Network Operators, Banks and Retailers but rather consumer focused and driven for a highly interactive consumer market where the consumer dictates the market pace.

Using an aggregator platform with high inter-operability and robust processors enabling us to handle a maximum of 200,000 transactions in volume per second. This is all accomplished while being able to process mobile wallets across various networks, proprietary cards, branded cards, international money transfers, contact less and cash amongst others via point of sale, web, and smart phones.
