Operations Director of the company, Mr. Chinedu Amadi, revealed that Swift2pay is an easy to use payment gateway and card to ensure that only users’smart wallet feature is exposed to online transactions.  Amadi said  Swift2pay is an innovation that enables Nigerians to move around with a smart wallet that has an additional feature of the ATM card, literally enlarging the coast for the cashless society.

He said consumers can tap into the boom by registering on the web app to complete their transactions. He promised that the Swift2pay App would soon be on Google Play Store and the Apple Store to enable consumers to fund their wallet through a transfer.

The benefit of the service, according to Amadi is that Nigerians can truly save time, cut off the waiting game at the bank, at the electricity office where sometimes the queue stretches to 100 metres, or even the drive around in search of recharge cards.
