Founded in 2012 by Tayo Oviosu, Paga works as a platform to transfer money, pay bills, and buy things digitally. Partnership with Orange Mall would see the mobile money operator serve as payment partner for the e-commerce company. This means that while Orange Mall handles operations, customer care, and logistics, Paga would be charged with processing all payments made through its secure wallet. Customers can thus link to their linked bank cards and accounts, or fund their wallets directly with cash.
Therefore, Paga users can shop on the global platform and pay locally with their Paga wallets.
“With Orange Mall, we are making it possible for our customers to shop globally and pay locally, increasing the utility of their Paga Wallets. One of the most important parts of this is that through this partnership, we can guarantee better pricing and painless payments for all Orange Mall customers,” said Paga’s General Manager for Online & Mobile, Folakemi Falodun.
