Interswitch has recorded a tremendous leap in transaction volumes, logging in over 1.2 billion transactions across Nigeria in the month of March. This number represents a 58% increase over the previous month’s total transaction volumes processed.

This figure is contained in its 2022/23 financial year

For context, during the entire year 2019, before the COVID-19 pandemic set in, Interswitch processed 2.7 billion transactions over the course of the entire year.

The company’s continuous investment in cutting-edge technologies that power Africa’s financial ecosystem has greatly contributed to the increase in its switching capacity, providing much-needed relief to millions of Nigerians in the form of digital payment channels, as the recent cash scarcity tightened its grip.

Serving a wide range of financial service providers including commercial banks, fintechs, microfinance banks and other financial institutions, Interswitch has continued to support key players in the payment space who in turn are able to serve the end users.

This tremendous growth speaks volumes about the company’s dedication to the provision of enabling systems in the payments ecosystem. Its resolve to Never Stop pushing the boundaries of innovation is evident in the unwavering service it delivers to its corporate clients and end consumers.
