vivo energyJOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – SHELL customers in several African countries will be able to pay for their fuel using Orange Money.
The Pan-African partnership between the two companies covers Botswana, Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, Guinea, Madagascar, Mali, Mauritius, Senegal and Tunisia.
Orange Money customers will be allowed to cash money in and out from their Orange Money account and pay in Shell service stations operated by Vivo Energy.
The services – already available in Mali, Ivory Coast and Madagascar – will be extended to the rest of the common footprint by mid-2017.
David Mureithi, Executive Vice President at Vivo Energy, said mobile money
represents a huge opportunity in Africa.
“Through this alliance with Orange Money, we want to expand the range of services we offer to our customers and also allow them to pay in a simple
and easy way on our retail sites,” Mureithi says.
The agreement seeks to strengthen both companies’ footprints and to improve customers’ experience.
Orange Money customers will have access to a network of over 1 000 Shell
service stations. Vivo Energy customers will enjoy services offered by the
Orange Money platform. They will also save time and money on transactions.
Thierry Millet, Executive Vice President, Orange Group (Mobile Money),
says Orange Money has evolved beyond money transfer to cover all essential
transactions.
“This is a real gain of proximity for our shared customers that can pay in
a fast and secure way, and cash in and cash out from any Vivo Energy outlet,” adds Millet.
