Nairametrics - Klasha expands to Ghana to facilitate cross-border payments
Klasha, a San Francisco and Lagos-based cross-border company building technology infrastructure for cross-border commerce in Africa, has expanded to Ghana. This expansion is coming few days after raising $2.4 million seed funding.
Launched in Nigeria in May 2021, Klasha’s solution helps merchants worldwide sell online to Africa and receive payments in local African currencies while enjoying superfast last-mile delivery to consumers across the continent. This launch represents Klasha’s first expansion into other African countries.
With this expansion, Klasha says it is opening Ghana to seamless international e-commerce and enabling seamless business extension into the region for global merchants. Thus, merchants can readily key into Ghana’s $429 million e-commerce economy, which is expected to rise to $811 million by 2024.
What they are saying
Jess Anuna, CEO of Klasha, said “Before now, international online and offline businesses faced the challenge of accepting online payments from Africa and even delivering items to Ghana. Our solution will simplify the process, removing payment and last-mile delivery barriers, making it easier and faster for retailers to collect online payments in Ghana, manage payouts and expand seamlessly.”
