Ebanx, the LatAm fintech unicorn, has extended its presence into eight African nations: Ivory Coast, Egypt, Ghana, Morocco, Senegal, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia, in addition to its existing presence in South Africa, Nigeria, and Kenya. This expansion aims to connect nearly 1 billion people in Africa, Asia, and Latin America to global brands through technology and local payments.
📈 Rising African Digital Commerce
Africa presents significant growth opportunities for digital commerce. It's expected that the rate of online shoppers in the region will increase by 10% annually until 2027, with a population exceeding one billion. Mobile phone penetration is high, and mobile payments are on the rise, positioning countries like Tanzania, Ghana, Uganda, and Zambia as "next digital frontiers."
💼 Ebanx's Approach
Ebanx is starting its operations in these African countries with mobile money and cash-based methods, catering to the local payment preferences. This expansion follows its presence in Latin America and the Caribbean, where cross-border commerce dominates, making it essential for global merchants to adapt to local payment methods.
🌴 Caribbean Expansion
Ebanx has also expanded into the Bahamas and Jamaica, recognizing the potential of cross-border commerce in the Caribbean. These regions have strong card usage in online sales, with debit cards accounting for a significant portion of digital commerce volume.
