The specialist payment and commercial credit firm driven by innovation on traditional payments models.
Imafin is a specialist payment and commercial credit firm driven by innovation on traditional payments models.
Through our commercial credit offering, we help suppliers and their customers to focus on their core business by removing credit risk in their procurement transactions, converting credit sales into instant cash and extending payment terms. We offer this solution in partnership with our partner, Diners Club International, a subsidiary of Standard Bank South Africa.
On behalf of our client, FinMark Trust, we recently developed Mobile Mobey guidelines for the Southern African Development Community (SADC). These guidelines will assist the 15 SADC member states to observe minimum standards and requirements for mobile money stakeholders, enabling them to harmonise their regulatory frameworks for mobile money adoption and advancement, both domestically and cross-border within the region.
The guidelines have recently been approved by the 15 member state’s Central Banks for adoption in their respective countries.
We have a diverse client base and have successfully completed key initiatives for blue chip clients such as MasterCard, Diners Club International, EcoNet, Nedbank, Engen and Shell to name but a few.
