ChapaChapa, a payment solution provider in Ethiopia, announced its partnership with Telegram to empower merchants using Telegram to seamlessly accept customer payments, for financial inclusion and digital payments in Ethiopia.

Chapa’s integration with Telegram’s bot ecosystem allows merchants to accept payments without requiring customers to leave the app. Whether through mobile money, bank transfers, or debit/credit cards, Chapa enables users to make payments instantly, enhancing convenience and accessibility.

“We are honoured to represent Ethiopia on the international stage as the exclusive Telegram payment provider in Africa,” said Israel Goytom, CTO and Co-founder of Chapa. “This noteworthy accomplishment speaks to the progress of our emerging fintech sector and reaffirms our commitment to drive financial technology advancements within the region.”

Bot developers can seamlessly integrate Bot Payments into any e-commerce platform by accessing Telegram’s open platform and available APIs. This integration opens exciting opportunities for merchants, allowing them to accept payments through any platform powered by a bot.

Chapa’s mission is to empower Ethiopian businesses to expand their reach in the global market, and this partnership with Telegram takes us one step closer to achieving that goal. We are revolutionising how users interact with businesses, offering a seamless experience combining messaging and payments.

With Telegram enabling payments within the messaging platform, the possibilities are endless. Chapa and Telegram are excited to bring this transformational experience to Ethiopian users, enhancing their daily lives and unlocking new avenues for growth.
