Zeepay partners with Moove to drive digital payments on Uber


Zeepay, the leading African Challenger Fintech with operations in over 10 African countries has announced a partnership with Moove, sub-Saharan Africa’s first flexible car ownership company to make digital payment easier for riders.

The platform provides the required functionalities to complete end-to-end transactions whilst ensuring financial security for all parties.
