The African paytech firm Flutterwave now offers US and Canadian payments to Senegal and Egypt through its ‘Send App by Flutterwave’ solution.
Flutterwave, an African paytech startup, has improved its ‘$end Mobile’ product to handle transfers from the US and Canada. This product is now known as ‘Send App by Flutterwave‘. The newest recipient nations in the network of the app are Senegal and Egypt.
With the goal of giving the African diaspora a quick, transparent, and safe way to send money to friends and family in Africa, Send by Flutterwave was first introduced in 2021.
And than the product’s rebranding and expansion of its remittance capabilities coincide with a decade-long increase in remittances to Africa. According to the United Nations, the space industry as a whole reached an anticipated $100 billion in 2022. An estimated 200 million relatives in Africa depend on these remittances to pay their rent, school fees, and other expenses.
Moreover the Send app from Flutterwave, which is now offered on the Play Store and the App Store, seeks to improve user experience. Real-time support and exchange rate updates, an upgraded activity area that tracks transactions in real-time, and a new voucher code section that allows users to receive discounts on purchases are some of the app’s other significant improvements. And than to get the updated features and appearance, current users can update their apps.
“Empowering millions of Africans, both at home and abroad”
Lead product manager at Send, Temioluwa Adesina, stated: “We’ve been hard at work making Send App the best method of money transfer for Africans living abroad. I’m glad we’re putting it into use now so that millions of Africans both at home and abroad may assist and connect with one another via money transfers on Send App in a simple, secure, and timely manner.
“No matter where we find ourselves as Africans, we remain tied to our home and always seek measures to support, appreciate, and stay connected with our loved ones,” added Olugbenga GB Agboola, founder and CEO of Flutterwave.
Finally we are thrilled to be assisting the approximately 160 million Africans living abroad in their quest to quickly and securely send money home using the Send App. This remittance solution is based on our cross-border expertise and reach into the world’s payment system. Send App is a crucial step in our aim to make payments simpler for limitless possibilities.
