E-Revenue Gateway ties up with ElectraCard Services

2nd August 2013 | By Mouseworld Now Correspondent |

New Delhi, India, August 2, 2013: ElectraCard Services (ECS), a provider of software and processing solutions for electronic payment systems, powers e-Revenue Gateway (e-RG), a payment processing and electronic transaction switching company, to launch contactless electronic payments in Nigeria. ECS’ PA-DSS compliant platform will help e-RG to launch programs with multiple financial institutions and channels like ATM/ POS/ Internet/ Mobile on the same platform. Contactless, otherwise commonly known as “tap & go” payment cards, are more convenient to use and perfectly aligns to “Cashless Nigeria” initiative of Central bank of Nigeria (CBN).

The eRG payment cards offer consumers a choice of debit or prepaid Smart Cards with the first NFC (Near Field Communication) capabilities in the country. The launch of this card by e-RG enables all card users to pay their bills in a safe, secure and seamless environment along with the use of the card for personal requirements. The electra iTx suite of products will assist e-RG in its plans to increase the card base to 50 Million users in the next five years. The CBN’ Cashless Policy is a vision of a world beyond cash and believes that electronic payments can enable economic growth and create a more financially inclusive economy.

Benjamin Adebajo, CEO, e-Revenue Gateway, said, “We are very happy with our choice in ECS, as they have been able to provide us with end-to-end solutions for our payment requirement. The ECS suite is scalable and provides enhanced security, ease of integration and their expertise in working with MasterCard PayPass makes them the ideal choice.”

Ramesh Mengawade, CEO, ElectraCard Services, said, “We are extremely proud to implement the electra suite of products for e-RG as it is the first-of-its-kind project in Nigeria. The electra suite offers customers the flexibility to implement innovative payment solutions and empowers them to deploy new services in the market quickly. We are certain that this project will be a trendsetter and will raise productivity and provide widespread benefits to consumers.”
