Alexpay: A Digital Wallet and Next Platform for the Startups to Compete
Small businesses are being the backbone of the economy in the modern world. As far as the American Dream is concerned, small businesses or startups are the biggest job creators. After the years of the financial crisis, the opportunity for businesses was bleak. But then the new rise of financial technology, or “FinTech,” appeared.
At the beginning of 2010, FinTech entrepreneurs identified the gaps in the small business lending market and transformed the customer experience for small business owners. Technology firms like Amazon, PayPal, and Square joined the market, and new opportunities for even more revolutionary products and services began to emerge. Banks also scrambled to catch up with the trends.
As digital wallets are frequently becoming the origination spot for customer spendings, they will in the future become THE platform for downstream financial services. This is like producing an opportunity for startups.
The Future of Digital Wallets:
The cloud wallets are facing the existential difficulty of being caught, actually, in the midst. The most intelligent thing they can do is join themselves with a winning application wallet if they are losing in getting sufficient credentials on their own. The payment companies like Chase and Citi are in jeopardy of being condensed into irrelevance and have attached themselves to the winning application wallets like Amazon, Lyft, Starbucks, Uber, etc.
So what does this suggest for startups? Well, it will become more accessible to approach the most profitable part of the stack — lending — without getting into the enormous and impractical path of payments.
Digital wallets may eventually facilitate the long-sought “taste graph” to be built. All of this will demand the “top” of the stack open up — for Apple, Google, and other players to understand they are creating a financial platform, which is the most valuable when developers have access.
Given the size of the market, it is a mystery of when not if, this will occur. And once it does, it’s expected to be a game-changer for the banks that for decades have depended on branches and customer branding. Also, startups who will eventually discover themselves with a capital-efficient entry point for disrupting customer finance.
What is Alexpay?
Alexpay is a platform launched by Allied Exchange Africa in collaboration with Global Tech Solutions to enable customers to transfer money from one mobile on a different network without using the internet. It is an integrated and secured avenue that aids unified, reliable, affordable and easy mobile money transfer across Ghana and the whole of Africa.
The main aim of Jacques Blinbaum from New York and Moses Kanduri from Ghana was to create a mobile platform to make sending money more affordable whilst sustaining the fast transfer speed and reliability. The mobile payment solution has been sketched to integrate the various mobile money platforms, the conventional banking network, and the established Brazilian F2b billing-payment platform.
The digital wallet aims to bridge the gap between sending and receiving money to and from loved ones. ALEXpay centers on joining friends and family in Ghana and across Africa by presenting a secure solution for day to day needs. Through this platform, the company is providing a workable solution to thousands of people in and around Ghana who have no or limited access when it comes to a bank account.
