Birthed in 2008, Quickteller has grown to become one of the biggest household names in the Nigerian and indeed African electronic payment ecosystem.

In the last decade, the Interswitch’s online payments platform for consumers and businesses has transformed from just being a payment platform, where payments are made across various channels (ATMs, Web, POS) to what can be described as an enabler of comfort and convenience.

‘Everything is Possible’. Of the truth, everything is possible on the Quickteller platform; from providing seamless payment for goods and services, Airtime Recharge, Funds Transfer, Bill Payments and Western Union Transfer to saving and ultimately, acquisition of loans.

As a digital payment solutions provider, the Quickteller payment platform is so ubiquitous that making a payment is possible for everyone, irrespective of location or need. Quickteller enables everyone to make transactions on the go, with a just few clicks.

This speaks of the company’s commitment to enabling users to simplify their everyday lives by making payments easily on the go.
