Safaricom Launches M-PESA APIs to Businesses

Safaricom (NSE: SCOM) has today announced release of a feature-rich M-PESA Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) portal to businesses in the country.

Dubbed Daraja, the portal will enable businesses to easily integrate with M-PESA drastically cutting down the more than 60 days it took businesses to link to M-PESA.

Through Daraja, businesses can now seamlessly integrate both Lipa Na M-PESA BuyGoods and PayBill cashless payments into mobile phone applications, websites, point of sale terminals and other business solutions. 

As a result, businesses across the country will be in a better position to take advantage of the growing e-commerce trend.

“M-PESA provides a unique platform that enables thousands of businesses to leverage its capabilities to drive their growth. The simplified onboarding process will enable both small and large businesses to integrate to M-PESA as a payment platform for their businesses with ease,” said Bob Collymore, CEO Safaricom.

Developers looking to integrate and create new innovations around M-PESA will similarly enjoy a more streamlined process, including the ability to easily plug to M-PESA using friendly programming languages.

The Daraja portal will enable developers to self-manage and access the APIs, as well as to test their code before fully deploying their applications.
