Safaricom Launches Daraja Portal-Businesses to Integrate Mpesa Easily
Safaricom has declared the release of a feature-rich mpesa Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) gateway to companies in the country. Named Daraja, the portal will enable businesses to easily integrate with M-PESA chopping down the more than 60 days it took companies to link to M-PESA.
Through Daraja, businesses can now integrate both Lipa Na M-PESA, Buy Goods and PayBill cashless payments into mobile phone applications, websites, the point of sale terminals and other business solutions. As a result, businesses across the country will be in a better position to take advantage of the growing e-commerce trend.
Developers looking to integrate and create innovations around M-PESA will similarly enjoy a more streamlined process. This will include the ability to plug into M-PESA using friendly programming languages quickly. The Daraja portal will enable developers to self-manage and access the APIs, as well as test their code before fully deploying their applications.
