The Journey So Far: Five Years of Providing Financial Solutions at Xpress Payments.

In 2016, a group of forward-thinking Nigerians discovered a problem. They realized that Nigerians typically went through hassles receiving/sending money and paying bills. These forward-thinking people then concluded that Nigerians and Africans at large needed an innovative platform with smarter financial solutions that provided a stress-free customer experience. This was the life force for the solution that Xpress Payments is.



"Since we began this journey in 2016, we have set out to be the preferred choice for e-payments in Africa. It has been no mean feat, but our mission and vision have kept us going.", says the MD/CEO, Dr (Mrs.) Markie Idowu in a recent interview with press members. She stressed further, "We believe that our drive to meet the needs of our Nigerian and African audience and turn their problems into solutions is our most exceptional feature."
