Paga is a direct to consumer mobile payments service launched by Pagatech, a mobile payments company in February 2011.
Paga is an innovative, open, secure, and interoperable mobile payments platform that allows any person who has a mobile phone to transact electronically – thus turning the mobile phone into an electronic wallet.
Customers can use Paga to send cash, purchase airtime credit, pay bills, and pay retailers. Paga supports all phones, even the most basic SMS-enabled phone.
Customers will also be able to transact on Paga over the internet, via the Paga mobile application which will be made available for java-enabled devices, and via USSD. Paga works on all mobile networks.
