According to the Spark’s Jessica Hope to TechMoran, “Users get to buy items and games coming within our games using SMS. Once the user decides to buy an item, the game sends an SMS from the user’s phone. The SMS can cost between 20 Naira to 100 Naira depending on the item.”
The in-app payment platform will be launched across Africa gradually.
“At the moment we are launching this in Nigeria for now. Talks are ongoing to get other mobile VAS aggregators to partner with across Africa,” Hope told TechMoran.
