Nigerian startup NebulaPay has built a secure conversational payments service that enables users to make recurring payments for things like airtime, electricity and DStv using Facebook Messenger in their own language.

Powered by artificial intelligence, the NebulaPay chatbot helps solve challenges experienced by people in paying recurring bills and transferring funds as a result of illiteracy, inconvenient locations and office hours of merchants, and the complexities of existing payment options.

The chatbot – which went live in January – has been integrated with chat messaging platforms like Facebook Messenger and Skype, allowing for easier payments. Read the full article on Disrupt Africa here.
