SWITZERLAND, JULY 12 – Nigerian Fintech firm and provider of the Remita financial technology solution has teamed up with NIBOX, a multi-platform payment solution provider, to extend financial products and services to the banked, underbanked and unbanked on NIBOX’s self-service Payment Terminals strategically located throughout Nigeria, and online through its innovative mobile platforms.
In a press statement signed by Brian Manuwike, Chief Procurement Officer of NIBOX and made available to Today’s Echo, the payment solution provider stated that through this partnership, services such as Federal and State Governments payments, electricity recharge token, airtime and data phone top-up, cinema tickets purchase, insurance premium payment, cash transfers and other utility bills will be accessible on NIBOX touchpoints.
NIBOX already has 55 terminals deployed in Lagos and Abuja, with a planned deployment of additional 500 terminals in Lagos and Abuja by the end of 2019. Transactions can be conducted round-the-clock on the NIBOX terminals using electronic or cash payments.
“We are glad to be collaborating with SystemSpecs to deliver new services to customers. Indeed, the value proposition and attainments of the Remita brand are a boost for this partnership and would ultimately be to the advantage of the end-user, who would now have improved access to various services and products across Nigeria,” said Dr. George Manuwuike, CEO/Founder, NIBOX.
