Lagos, Nigeria. April 26, 2016. Nigeria’s largest online mall, Konga.com. has again demonstrated its commitment to being the engine of trade and commerce in Africa by launching KongaPay to facilitate the initiation and completion of transactions in a seamless manner.
Speaking at the launch Shola Adekoya, Konga.com’s CEO said “Konga is launching KongaPay payment solution because we want Nigerians and Africans at large to experience the best of service at their convenience. This means we constantly evolve to be more relevant to customers and society.”
He continued by saying “We are extending KongaPay to other consumers outside of the Konga.com’s platform because it is designed to be fast, reliable, secure, flexible and above all provides a best-in-class financial solution to Nigerians and Africa at large.
A first in Africa and the World, KongaPay is pioneering something we’ve called me-Commerce. With KongaPay, take a photo of any item you want to sell and we’ll generate a payment QR code for you. Just like that, you will be able to share the QR code on your favorite social media sites. We’re excited to provide a unique gateway for local entrepreneurs to reach both local and international markets through social media.

Me-Commerce – a 1st in the world, where a user can create a shareable QR code for an item and get it out into social networks, thus enabling payments on Instagram, Facebook, Whatsapp – all through KongaPay
Beyond being an e-commerce platform for trade, KongaPay has positioned Konga as a solution provider and a pacesetter to other e-commerce platforms on how e-commerce can contribute to employment generation, entrepreneurial empowerment, ecosystem development and also help in the economic growth of Nigeria and Africa.
We are proud to say that KongaPay is the first payment solution in the world to entrench these collective solutions into one product. This reaffirms Konga’s position as the development leader in its industry and its commitment to further deepen the ecosystem.
