In today’s business environment, the more payment methods you accept as a business, the more possibilities you give yourself to grow your revenue. We are happy to announce Google Pay as a payment option for Flutterwave merchants granting them the ability to afford convenience for customers to make payments with Google Pay in the countries that it is available.

About Google Pay

Google Pay is a mobile payment service developed by Google to power in-app, online, and in-person contactless purchases on mobile devices, enabling users to make payments with Android phones, tablets, watches and other devices. Through Google Pay, customers can make payments using the phone instead of a bank card or cash.
