Congratulations to portfolio company Flutterwave on their partnership with Visa in bringing their new product, Barter, to market! Barter is an app that facilitates personal and small merchant payments across Africa, and will be distributed by Flutterwave's existing enterprise clients.
The app based offering is aimed at facilitating personal and small merchant payments within countries and across Africa’s national borders. Existing Visa card holders can send and receive funds at home or internationally on GetBarter. The product also lets non card-holders (those with accounts or mobile wallets on other platforms) create a virtual Visa card to link to the app. A Visa spokesperson confirmed the product partnership.
