@edozie_izegbu @g amazing stuff! I would recommend you speak to someone on our team by going to flutterwave.com and typing in the chat icon. POS payments is they are regulated by NIBBS so we have to make sure you have the required license before giving you access to our solutions for those.

Flutterwave is an API that lets you process credit card and local alternative payments, like mobile money and ACH, across Africa. They're solving a huge problem for Africa. In the US, most stores take debit, credit, and mobile payments. But in Africa, merchants have to integrate with each form of payment individually -- which means many stores will have a POS system that takes only Visa but not MasterCard. The integration process is so difficult that many store owners don't even bother with POS. Flutterwave makes accepting all forms of payments simple for any merchant. Uber is even using them in Lagos. If you're building a payments company in Africa, or if you need to make or accept payments in Africa, you need Flutterwave.

@hussein_shtia Absolutely we do allow marketplace payments. It does require you to do some work with our API though and we will be making this use case more explicit in future versions of Flutterwave's API. Check out flutterwave.com and talk to one of our Developers for more details

I used their invoicing and payment link to collect payment from abroad. It was really not what i expected because they were my last option. I never really trusted them at first. A friend told me to try them out and until I tried out other more established names, I didnt try them. Well, things have changed anf their products are a lot better than before. Kudos to the team. I will use the payment link again and again and I hope I don't encounter any issues.
