Interswitch launches Quickteller Global Mall
Quickteller Global Mall allows customers to shop directly from over 100 international stores, including, Amazon, Zara and eBay, and pay in naira.
Interswitch, an Africa-focused digital payments and commerce company, has launched a new product as an added feature to its Quickteller electronic payment platform. Launched on Friday, Quickteller Global Mall allows customers to shop directly from over 100 international stores, including, Amazon, Zara and eBay, and pay in naira.
The e-commerce platform affords international business people the opportunity of having their goods shipped, cleared and safely delivered through one platform.
According to a statement by Interswitch, Quickteller Global Mall allows users to purchase a wide variety of goods and services, including household items, electronic devices, furniture, mobile devices, laptops, books and cars, from the United Kingdom and United States within a period of 10-15 days, thereby reducing delivery cost and time in business transactions.
“This product was borne out of a rigorous series of surveys, user interviews and user testing which we have piloted with a couple of Quickteller’s most loyal users, and they share our excitement at this innovation,” said Adetayo Teluwo, Head of Digital Payments, Products and Marketing Management at Interswitch.
Teluwo added that customers do not need to bother about changing currencies or looking for forex. “All payments are done in naira. This is something every business person should take advantage of,” he said.
The service is currently available on chrome desktop browser as an extension. Alternatively, customers can log on to globalmall.quickteller.com. It is expected to launch on other channels soon.
Quickteller is an electronic platform that gives users easy and convenient access to a wide range of services such as purchase of airtime, Internet broadband, and airline tickets. Customers can also use it to pay toll fares, electricity bills, DSTV subscription renewal, betting and funds transfer.
Launched in 2002, Interswitch is at the forefront of creating intuitive ways to pay and transact using digital technologies such as Quickteller and Verve, a pan-African chip card accepted in over 185 countries across the globe. The company also has operations in Kenya and Uganda.
