“We actually designed this app at the request of some of our church partners who wanted an app free from distractions for their congregation to use for instant giving in church,” SimplePay CEO, Simeon Ononobi said of the new application.
Not only can church attendees give instantly, but now churches can track all donations, get reports, and view a history of donations. The app and management dashboard is free for churches to use. Users pay a 1% plus ₦10 fee to donate. “The fee is less than using a credit card and less than the transportation costs to get to the ATM or bank,” said SimplePay COO, Rich Tanksley.
The new app can be downloaded from the Google Play store here:
Founded in 2013 by Simeon Ononobi, SimplePay received funding from Seedstars, a Swiss-based venture builder this year to continue with its journey of allowing businesses or consumers with an e-mail address and a bank account to send and receive payments online or through their mobile phone real-time.
