Mondia Pay and M-Pesa have partnered to allow Tanzanians to conveniently access Mondia’s leading suite of online content on the Vodacom Tanzania digital services network.
Africa is experiencing a fintech explosion, with digitalization coming of age in many countries as connectivity and access to devices expand and the pressures of COVID-19 shift more consumers online. According to the GSMA, two-thirds of global mobile-money transactions are driven by sub-Saharan Africa.
Currently, over 7 Million Vodacom Tanzania customers using Valued Added Services (VAS) and digital services, can make use of their airtime balances via SMS and USSD to subscribe to Mondia digital services including PlayInc., MyMuze, Vodacom Premier league, as well as many other news and entertainment services.
With the addition of the Mondia Pay and M-Pesa payment option, users now have a safe, secure and convenient payment method connecting them to the world’s best content, from sports and movies to music and games.
“The future of fintech is going to be driven by innovative partnerships that offer compelling and convenient consumer solutions. We are extremely proud of our efforts to enable customers across Tanzania to benefit from Mondia Pay’s integration of M-Pesa as an additional payment option. We also support the continuous efforts taken towards the transition into cashless societies, which has gained significant traction in the past 12 months,” said Simon Rahmann, CEO of Mondia Pay.
On his part, Vodacom Tanzania’s Director for Digital Services Nguvu Kamando insisted that the new deal will increase flexibility and ease of payments in the country.
“This new M-Pesa payment option increases accessibility for our customers to the Mondia digital services offering. The use of M-Pesa will offer increased flexibility and ease-of-payments for our customers,” Kamando said.
