M-Pesa FinTech API Will Integrate Easily and Aid in Quick Payments
Safaricom, the mobile network operator behind M-Pesa has released an Application Programming Interface (API) for all developers who want to create solutions tied directly into their payment systems.
M-Pesa is Kenya’s largest mobile money service and world’s most successful to date.
About 43 percent of Kenya’s GDP flows through the service and close to 70% of Kenya’s adult population has an account for the service.
In April 2015, Safaricom moved M-Pesa’s servers to Kenya, which it declared will help improve services to customers.
The move to open the service to third party developers could give it an advantage of harnessing innovations from a wider pool.
