Ericsson and MTN launch Mobile Money open API platform in Ghana

By Vaibhav Pradip

Ericsson and MTN have extended their Mobile Money partnership with the launch of an open API platform in Ghana. This will give entrepreneurs an opportunity to develop revenue-generating applications. As part of the new agreement, MTN will grant access to third parties to its Mobile API powered by Ericsson’s Wallet Platform.

This will enable developers and programmers to get free access to MTN’s proprietary software platform. Developers can now access it and create products that ease payment options and leverage the MTN clients registered on Mobile Money.
