In a post, Wafi said: “We have always had a need to transact, and transactions have evolved overtime, from a trade by barter system to exchanging goods and services for cash. As a result, a seamless payment processing system is critical to global commerce.

“While we’ve made significant progress in helping people pay for goods and services everywhere payment processing is still not great.

“Fraud, identity theft, high processing fees, and poor disparate user experiences continue to plague businesses and their customers.”

According to Wafi, the consumer spending behaviour has undergone changes in the last couple of years, with 2021 saw a 23% increase in the use of debit card.
