A global online payment service provider “PayU” has been introduced in Nigeria with innovations that will continue to make the market more competitive.

The PayU Payments Nigeria Limited with trading name as “PayU”, according to its Country Manager, Juliet Nwanguma, is a recently established payment business in Nigeria and fully approved by the Central Bank of Nigeria in line with its initiative to promote cashless economy.

The company, which simplifies online payment transactions, forms part of the leading and trusted PayU group of companies (PayU Group) owned by Naspers. Globally, the PayU group of companies provides payment processing and related services to merchants and consumers. The PayU Group’s strength lies in its local approach to payments: valuing local language and culture. By establishing a local presence in Nigeria, this further underscores the Group’s values.

“PayU” offers simple and secure online payment services to merchants enabling them to accept payments of goods and services using debit and credit cards from their customers and other alternative payment methods as well.

Speaking with journalists in Abuja during the 2016 annual retreat of the Committee of e-Banking Heads (CeBIH), she said PayU is a leading online payment service provider in 16 global markets.

Nwanguma said, “Our objective is to provide simple and secure online payment solutions to merchants and consumers. This objective is in response to the growing market and regulatory needs to take cash payments online and digitise the economy, whilst at the same time ensuring financial inclusion for all.”
