Challenge: Finding the right solution to accept payments following launch in Nigeria
Solution: Rave by Flutterwave.
HUB8 had plans to launch a local website with web services for Nigerians looking to build profitable online businesses. In order for their company to scale, HUB8 needed a solution that would enable their Nigerian customers to pay for the variety of domains and services they offered on their site.
HUB8 partnered with [Flutterwave] to enable their customers in Nigeria to purchase their desired domains and switch to paid models whenever they desired. With Rave by [Flutterwave], Nigerian customers will be able to purchase a variety of domains starting from N350 from HUB8 and also pay for other web services from the company.
Nigerians can make payments using Verve cards from GTbank, Access bank, First Bank, Diamond bank, UBA, and Zenith bank apart from using VISA and Mastercard cards.
“The integration was easy – both for our lawyers and developers. [Flutterwave] offers clear fee structure and we moved forward quite fast. Our tech team was invited to private Slack channel so they can ask questions in real time. The integration was smooth and easy.” - Dmitry Deniskin, HUB8’s Director for Emerging Markets.
HUB8 is looking forward to launching in South Africa, Kenya and Ghana among other African countries. Their expansion will not pose any additional integrations since [[Flutterwave] already provides payment solutions in South African Rands, Kenyan Shillings, and Ghanaian Cedis.
“Integrating Rave into any online platform enables merchants to do business across Africa from anywhere in the world. We are pleased to power-up global web hosting company [HUB8] with their mission to help small business in Africa easily set-up websites. We believe that by rebuilding modern payments infrastructure to connect Africa to the global economy, we will spur a new wave of prosperity across the continent.” - Koromone, Communications and Marketing Associate.
