FlutterwaveFlutterwave, an African payments technology company, announced it is working with Microsoft Azure to build its next-generation platform on Microsoft Azure, powering payments infrastructure across the African continent and beyond.

This agreement reflects Flutterwave’s commitment to giving businesses and individuals access to global-grade services across Africa and driving digital transformation worldwide. With Flutterwave and Microsoft’s plans to power payments to-and-from Africa, this collaboration is an incredible opportunity to impact growth across the continent.

Through this engagement, Flutterwave will support the accelerated growth of transactions processed on the Flutterwave platform for global clients like Uber, Netflix, and Microsoft, solidifying Azure’s role in facilitating a seamless, reliable, and secure payment experience.

Key Flutterwave products, such as Flutterwave for Business, Send by Flutterwave, Flutterwave Store, and Flutterwave for FinTech Platform, are being developed and transitioned onto the robust Azure cloud platform. Moreover, Flutterwave uses Azure OpenAI Service capabilities, enabling the scaling of its product offerings to millions of merchants worldwide.

“Microsoft has been an invaluable partner, providing a platform that allows us to deliver consistently high-quality services to our clients,” said Olugbenga Agboola’s founder and CEO, Flutterwave. “As we manage high-volume payment processing, particularly during peak periods, the robustness, reliability, and scalability of Microsoft Azure become critical. As such, deepening our collaboration with Microsoft is our most logical step forward.”

“Our development on Microsoft Azure has set a strong foundation for Flutterwave,” said Gurbhej Dhillon, Flutterwave CTO. “Their platform provides us with significant developer leverage, which we harness in service of our clients. Looking to the future, we are excited about the possibilities of scaling with Azure OpenAI Service, which will enable us to serve even more merchants worldwide,”
