DPO Group partners with Mastercard to enhance digital payments in Ghana

GHANA – DPO Group has partnered with Mastercard to enable thousands of businesses in Ghana to offer their customers greater choice and convenience by pivoting online and accepting digital payments.

Through the collaboration, DPO will leverage Mastercard’s digital payments technology to enable businesses to accept a wide range of digital payment methods safely, seamlessly, and securely.

It will also help small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and international companies to process payments via a single integrated platform.

This platform is equipped with strong protection against online fraud and support for refunds, chargebacks, and more.

Users will be granted access to the DPO store, an e-commerce plug-and-play solution available in more than 20 countries in which DPO operates.

Through this partnership, DPO and Mastercard will also provide training for Ghanaian firms and entrepreneurs on how to maximize business growth and manage risk with smart use of digital payments.

Ghana is an exciting market for digital payments and innovation, and we’re delighted to launch our advanced payment solutions to offer entrepreneurs smooth and secure payment services,” said Eran Feinstein, CEO of DPO Group.

It plays a role in advancing Mastercard’s worldwide commitment to financial inclusion to bring a total of 1 billion people, and 50 million micro and small businesses into the digital economy by 2025.

This collaboration has the potential to empower every business with the tools they need to take their operations online and be more competitive in the ever-expanding digital economy,” said Bossman Kwapong, Country Director, Ghana, Mastercard.

E-Commerce has seen significant growth in Ghana in recent years, with the value of digital transactions increasing by 120% between February 2020 and February 2021.

The adoption and use of Mobile Money have been central to this growth, and DPO’s payments platform supports this payment method alongside traditional currencies and payment methods.

DPO Group had been earlier acquired by Network International in 2021 in a landmark deal for the African payments space.

It continues to operate under the same brand in existing territories, and will be launching a new comprehensive payment solution, ‘DPO Pay’ for businesses across Africa and other territories.
