“A pain point for customers in the past has been having to undertake multiple transfers to complete a single purchase.”

“A key risk with multiple transfers was exchange rate fluctuation. Sending up to $45,000 with just our mobile app will protect senders from the fluctuation that arises when one splits up the transfer,” said Karanja.

African immigrants in the European countries can now easily complete larger purchases in Africa such as that of property, vehicles and paying large hospital bills or university fees via the SimbaPay app.

As an incentive to users, SimbaPay money transfers of more than $3,000 will also automatically qualify for the daily SimbaPay Discounted Exchange Rates. With the Discounted Exchange Rate, a user gets to transfer money at a more favourable exchange rate than the standard SimbaPay exchange rate.

EU based Africans will now be able to send large amounts of money back home instantly and free of charge.

Money transferred via the service to Africa is credited instantly at the destination mobile money wallet, merchant or bank account.

“What further sets SimbaPay apart from other money transfer services is that the App can do more than just send money directly to mobile money services such as M-Pesa. SimbaPay can also send money to bank accounts in Africa and to Pay Bill merchants such as schools and utility companies,” said Karanja.

The app’s higher transaction limit is immediately available on all SimbaPay platforms including iPhone, iPad, Android and Web.

Accolades

In 2015, SimbaPay was named the Overall Winner at the prestigious Demo Africa 2015). SimbaPay also launched free, instant transfers to all Nigerian banks last year.

In June 2015 SimbaPay became the first platform in the world to allow Kenyans living abroad to make M-Pesa PayBill payments and the app continues to disrupt the cross-border remittance industry with its focus on extreme speed and convenience.

 

In April 2016, SimbaPay was selected as one of 10 companies to join the first ever Barclays Accelerator powered by Techstars) in Africa.
