We can’t stop, and we won’t stop! We are excited to keep simplifying payments for endless possibilities with our new product, Flutterwave Fintech As A Service (FaaS). FaaS allows you to embed financial services into your product in minutes. Whether you’re a fintech or a business that needs to embed fintech services in your app, say you need a wallet system like Uber cash within your app, you’re able to do it in minutes. Your app is easily able to allow your customers to hold funds in their wallets, pay bills, create virtual cards, and do so much more. All without building out infrastructure that’s been built already or acquiring licenses because Flutterwave has done it so you don’t have to.

What FaaS Can Do For You

Being Africa’s top financial technology company, we understand this pain.
