Fintech startup Flutterwave has partnered with Visa to launch a consumer payment product for Africa called GetBarter.

The app-based offering is aimed at facilitating personal and small merchant payments within countries and across Africa’s national borders. Existing Visa  cardholders can send and receive funds at home or internationally on GetBarter.

The product also lets non-cardholders (those with accounts or mobile wallets on other platforms) create a virtual Visa card to link to the app.  A Visa spokesperson confirmed the product partnership.
