Chipper Cash Acquires License to Offer International Remittances and 3rd-Party Payment Gateway Services in Ghana

Chipper Cash, a leading cross-border mobile money startups in Africa, has been granted an Enhanced Payment Service Provider License by the Bank of Ghana to begin commercial operations in Ghana.

Chipper Cash was granted the license after it met the licensing application requirements for payment service providers of Ghana’s Central Bank. While Ghana has been one of the countries where Chipper operates, the enhanced license means it has extra permissions to expand its business across the country.

Some of the services that can now be offered by the fintech service include:

  • Printing and personalization of EMV Cards, the likes by Visa and Mastercard
  • International remittances services into Ghana
  • Provide 3rd party payment gateway services
  • Limited use closed loop virtual cards (funded via refunds, rewards & user’s other accounts)

Chipper Cash was founded by Ghanaian Maijid Moujaled and Ugandan Ham Serunjogi in 2018 to solve challenges involved with completing transactions from one African country to another such as high rates and regulatory hassles.

According to Chipper Cash’s Ghana CEO, Taylor Samson, the company will double down on its mission to provide fast and cheap payments across Ghana.

“Chipper Cash today has grown much faster across the continent than initially anticipated but that also reminds us all of how fast the fintech industry is growing and why we should all be part of this new world.

Chipper cash is here to provide endless solutions that would bring opportunity and convenience to not only Ghanaians but Africans all over the world.”
