Introducing Wafi.cash: A fast, secure, and cost effective payment processing platform for ecommerce businesses
We have always had a need to transact, and transactions have evolved overtime, from a trade by barter system to exchanging goods and services for cash. As a result, a seamless payment processing system is critical to global commerce.
While we’ve made significant progress in helping people pay for goods and services everywhere payment processing is still not great. Fraud, identity theft, high processing fees, and poor disparate user experiences continue to plague businesses and their customers.
Today, we are announcing the launch of Wafi.cash, a payment processing platform that provides you with a simple API to process bank payments in a fast, secure and cost effective way. Wafi eliminates redundant entities in the payment processing flow giving you 10x lower payment processing fees as a result.
Wafi opens businesses to new payment opportunities
Over the last few years there has been a shift in consumer behavior towards cash spending online and offline – in 2021, debit card usage grew by 23%. Wafi enables you to take advantage of this shift in user behavior by opening you up to new tools and technologies:
Real time payments: Wafi gives you access to Real Time Payment (RTP) rails which makes it possible to settle bank payments in seconds instead of days. Our API and webhook enables you to send Real Time Payments (RTP) requests and receive settlement responses in real time.
Open banking: Wafi gives you access to open banking. Open banking enables trusted third party financial services (like Wafi) to access consumer bank data in order to process payments. By plugging into our platform, you are able to leverage this system to increase payment reliability and reduce fraud.
Security and Convenience: Wafi comes built from the ground up with security and convenience as core principles. Our platform is built with bank grade encryption to protect data at rest and in transit. We’ve also deployed a smart multi factor authentication (2FA) system that allows users to pay securely with a single click.
Loyalty: Wafi Checkout closes the loop between payment processing and loyalty. The product enables you to create bespoke loyalty programs (with zero code) to encourage customers to make repeat purchases and become loyal users.
