iPay, a leading payment processor has launched an affiliate programme to unlock Africa’s digital payments market which largely remains untapped.

Speaking of Friday 5th April during the launch of iPay affiliates programme, Philip Nyamwaya, the MD of iPay said, “We are targeting web developers, digital marketers, merchants and influencers with clients who are selling both online and in-store.”

One can log into its online portal affiliates.ipayafrica.com and register as an individual or business. The process is simplified and one can enjoy commissions of up to 10 per cent when he/she successfully refer a merchant to iPay.

“You can continue to earn as long as your merchants continue to transact via our payment platforms,” said Philip.

“The merchant can be online or have a physical store presence, this will be an added value to the web designer’s ecommerce product offering, even as we grow our transactions base,” he added.

There are about 45 million mobile money accounts in Kenya with deals worth Ksh3.9 trillion settled by mobile phones this year, according to latest data from the Communications Authority of Kenya.

We value relationships we have with our clients and community in general. Thus we introduced such a programme so that we can all enjoy the benefits of such digital opportunities in the country, said Philip.
