Paga a leading mobile payment platform in Nigeria has partnered with one of my favourite Nigeria Company Medplus which sees both organisations combine the scale and reach of their respective business lines to provide consumers with unprecedented access to all Paga services and cashless payment options at all Medplus locations nationwide.
Paga offers mobile payment across the country with the mobile phone as its major tool. The recipient does not need to have a Paga account; they simply go to the nearest agent to collect the money. With this announcement the recipient can go to any Medplus to collect money sent to them.
Additionally people can visit any Medplus to initiate Paga transactions; most of which are now free – send money to anyone in Nigeria(Free if both sender and recipient are registered Paga users), free bill payments for DStv, GOtv, PHCN and many more; buy airtime on all major phone networks and other Paga services.
The partnership will see Medplus leverage Paga to promote cashless payments at its stores – people can walk into any Medplus and pay using cash in their Paga account. This brings cashless payments to banked and unbanked people as it costs nothing to open a Paga account. Users can also deposit money into their Paga account for free at any Paga agent nationwide.
