PayGate re-brands and extends reach into Africa
13 April 2018
Payments company, DPO Group has announced the rollout of its Southern African payment service providers (PSPs) into the consolidated brand of DPO PayGate.
In August 2017, DPO Group announced its acquisition of PayGate South Africa and Virtual Card Services (VCS) South Africa. The deal followed its previous acquisitions of PayThru and VCS Botswana and Namibia.
The consolidated DPO PayGate is now the biggest PSP in Southern Africa and supports payments for tens of thousands of merchants in the region. The broader DPO Group in Africa, collectively services more merchants in more countries in Africa than any other payments service provider.
“PayGate will be adopting the DPO Group brand identity, but the real story is the collective benefit we now offer our customers. DPO PayGate can now provide our merchants with a truly pan-African payment solution. Previously companies looking to access customers on the continent had to sign up with different payments service providers in each region and each country where they did business. Now organisations can reach their customers in more than 14 African countries through a single integration into the DPO Group, via DPO Paygate South Africa, explains Peter Harvey, Managing Director of DPO PayGate.
