Remita introduces eNaira on payment platform

Remita, Africa’s leading electronic payment brand, has introduced e-Naira, the digital currency of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), as an additional payment option across all its touch points.

With the introduction of eNaira on Remita, individuals and businesses can now make and receive payments with eNaira for all utilities, services, and products available on the Remita web and mobile platforms as well as through the Remita Payment Gateway deployed to thousands of merchants and aggregators.

The Remita eNaira e-commerce proposition is another first from Remita, well known over the years for being a fintech and payments innovation leader. Until now, the eNaira had contended with low adoption due to a low level of awareness of its benefits or practical use cases over subsisting electronic payment options.

The Remita eNaira initiative is a major outcome of the CBN’s efforts through collaboration with leading fintechs and banks to ensure that the benefits of Nigeria’s digital currency are speedily realised.
