Introducing: Pay with bank by Afriex

One of our top priorities at Afriex is to continuously make cross border transactions via the Afriexapp an easy and extremely seamless experience for existing and new users. In line with this vision, we're delighted to announce the launch of our newest feature: Pay with bank by Afriex.

If you transfer money home to Africa (Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Uganda), you understand how critical it is to complete transactions quickly, seamlessly, safely, and securely, whether it is for business or personal reasons. Our newest feature brings you one step closer to your goal!

A better upgrade from Pay with Card, the new Pay with Bank feature provides users with  improved security by allowing you to log in with your bank  to perform transactions safely and with ease.

The Pay with Bank feature also eliminates the need to bring your card with you everywhere (which increases your card's susceptibility to theft and loss) in order to initiate transactions that you may need to perform on the go or in an emergency.
