Chipper is a fintech company based in Africa that offers a range of digital financial services, including a payment method called “Chipper.” Chipper Cash was established in 2018. The company aims to facilitate digital transactions and payments in Africa, where traditional financial infrastructures are often limited.
The Chipper payment method allows users to securely and conveniently transfer money directly from their mobile phones. It provides a solution for personal payments, peer-to-peer transfers, as well as business transactions. Chipper Cash also enables cash withdrawals at local service points, making access to liquidity easier.
The Chipper payment platform integrates with other existing financial services, such as mobile wallets, bank accounts, and debit cards. This allows users to link their existing accounts to the Chipper platform and carry out transactions seamlessly.
To use the Chipper payment method, users need to download the Chipper Cash mobile application on their phones and create an account. They can then add funds to their Chipper wallet by linking their bank account or using other available deposit methods. Once the account is funded, users can make payments, send money to other users, and withdraw cash as needed.
Chipper Cash is available in several African countries, including Ghana, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania, Nigeria, and South Africa. The company has experienced rapid growth and has attracted investments from major technology firms, including Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, and Joe Montana, a former American football player.
