Chapa, the leading payment solution provider in Ethiopia, has announced an exclusive partnership with Telegram.
This collaboration is set to revolutionize the way merchants accept payments, marking a significant milestone for financial inclusion and digital payments in Ethiopia.
Telegram has emerged as a trusted platform for communication globally, surpassing other messenger apps like Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and IMO in Ethiopia.
With over 500 million active users, Telegram has become the go-to platform for businesses to sell their products through channels and groups.
Through Chapa’s integration with Telegram’s bot ecosystem, merchants can now accept payments without customers having to leave the app. Whether it’s through mobile money, bank transfers, or debit/credit cards, Chapa enables users to make instant payments, enhancing convenience and accessibility.
This partnership brings a new level of ease and efficiency to the world of e-commerce, benefiting both businesses and consumers.
“We are proud to be the exclusive Telegram payment provider in Africa, representing Ethiopia on the international stage,” said Israel Goytom, CTO and Co-founder of Chapa.
Bot developers can seamlessly integrate Bot Payments into any e-commerce platform by accessing Telegram’s open platform and available APIs.
This integration opens up exciting opportunities for merchants, allowing them to accept payments through any platform powered by a bot.
Chapa’s mission is to empower Ethiopian businesses to expand their reach in the global market, and this partnership with Telegram brings them one step closer to achieving that goal.
By revolutionizing how users interact with businesses, Chapa offers a seamless experience that combines messaging and payments.
Imagine the convenience of ordering a pair of shoes and paying for them through a simple chatbot. With Telegram enabling payments within the messaging platform, the possibilities are endless.
Chapa and Telegram are thrilled to bring this transformational experience to Ethiopian users, enhancing their daily lives and unlocking new avenues for growth.
