E-commerce and online shopping has been growing exponentially in the recent times, and payment methods for such purchases have also undergone a digital transformation. Customers have readily adapted to digital payment options since they can save a lot of time and effort needed for shopping and paying for their purchases, not only on shopping websites, but also brick and mortar stores. And for this purpose, a payment gateway is an absolute necessity- it helps merchants process and accept payments through various modes. Customers can authorise secure payments to merchants via banks by providing credit card information or bank account information.
Since the time they came into being, payment gateways have enabled businesses with a reliable conduit for the transfer of sensitive payment information and speedier transactions.
While swiping a card or punching in the password for a card looks simple, the technological processes that happen behind it are quite complex, and have to be swift as well as accurate. Moreover, digital transactions are susceptible to cyber threats, and a secure environment for such data transfer is an absolute must.
Jenga Payment Gateway was introduced by Finserve in 2018 to enable businesses across Africa to accept direct payments from multiple sources in multiple locations. Jenga is the Swahili word for ‘build’ or ‘create’, and creating has been the forte of Finserve since the time of its inception.
