ExpressPay processes over six million card transactions.

"At expressPay, we continue to provide the highest level of security to enable our customers to effect their transactions safely and securely," said Nii Tetteh, Chief Technology Officer of expressPay. "We follow world class best practices in both standards and ensure the standards are adhered to by our staff at all times."

The platform serves as a one stop shop for the payment needs of both eCommerce and brick and mortar retailers who use its Point of Sale terminals. ExpressPay epitomizes real-time payments and currently leads all banks and Fintechs in facilitating real-time bank account transfers in Ghana.

"We are very proud to be associated with a successful FINTECH like ExpressPay" said CK Bruce, CEO of Innovare.
