About us

Who We Are

Established in 2005, Obopay is among the earliest entrants in the money service technology products segment. Obopay offers businesses a unique, integrated processing platform that is capable of linking multiple participants into a transaction network by adapting to a variety of payment technologies.

What we offer

Our managed payment services product enables seamlessly onboarding of the software platform to help manage real time payment processes across multiple access channels. With mobile client interfaces across multiple channels, our solution maximises customer reach and allows users to send and receive money, pay bills and buy goods and services, wirelessly.

How we support


The Obopay solution capabilities include connecting to a third party Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) aggregator to connect to the USSD gateway of the mobile operator, to ease customer access to services.

Mobile Apps

Both end customers and channel members can use the mobile payment services over smartphones.

Sim Toolkit (STK)

With STK enability, clients can easily embed the solution on the SIM and distribute it across various telecom providers. Our solution also has an easy to understand user interface to facilitate smooth transactions.

SMS and IVR Channel

Customers can send SMS commands to the IVR number to complete a transaction. For transactions requiring higher levels of confidentiality, such as verifying the authenticity of a transaction, customers receive an IVR callback, enhancing security through the SMS channel. Customers can also call the IVR line from their handsets to complete transactions through the IVR.

J2ME and WAP Channel

The J2ME channel is primarily for GSM phones that can download the Obopay application from the Obopay WAP channel while the WAP channel is for other technologies. Both channels use secured http (128 bit SSL) to enable data transfers from the handset to our platform.

Web Channel

All popular browsers such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla and Safari support this platform, making it easy for customers to access the services over the net.
