Ecobank Group’s Pan-African Banking Sandbox is Live

Banking

After a successful pilot run with select Fintechs in early 2020, the Pan-African Banking Sandbox of Ecobank Group is now live and acessible, on request, to the African Fintech community. The Sandbox allows Fintechs to access Ecobank’s Application Programming Interface (APIs) for the development of innovative solutions.

The Sandbox is a major milestone for the Ecobank Group on it’s Open Banking strategy and it will accelerate partnership with Fintechs and other Partners across Africa.

The Sandbox will position the annual Ecobank Fintech Challenge beyond a competition to a Developer Platform and Marketplace of fintech solutions. 

The Group Executive, Technology and Operations – Mr. Eddy Ogbogu stresses that As the Pan-African bank, Ecobank is committed to the growth of  the Pan-African Fintech Ecosystem. This Sandbox is designed to facilitate this objective. Innovative Fintechs, start-ups, product developers and technology partners are invited  to leverage the platform to actualise their pan-African dreams.

Group Senior Fintech Advisor - Djiba Diallo noted that The Sandbox is designed to be relevant to the needs of the Ecosystem. There were really positive reviews from the pilot as well as some valuable feedback which  helped in finetuning the platform for Live launch. The pilot indeed helped both Ecobank and Fintechs get the best out of the Sandbox. We are excited about the new opportunities it brings  to the ecosystem and customers.

Omosalewa "O" Adeyemi, Global Head of Expansion & Partnerships at Flutterwave said: “This is an innovative platform we were able to carry out mobile money, card payment transactions conveniently. The platform also provided APIs that allow a merchant identify itself for future merchant terminal creation as well as generate unique merchant and dynamic QR payment codes Merchants in any case are also able to generate their account statement for holistic account overview. We look forward to incorporating these services on our payment platform.”
