Konga Pay : Features you never knew  about and How it Works.

Konga Pay is a pilot product launched by Konga.com in 2015 for online shoppers.  Shopping on Konga was made easier with Konga pay. Sometimes, to shop online, comes with a certain distrust. So there are  many questions bordering around online fraud. You can purchase a product, and never get it delivered. Or other times, your money is lost in transit.

I’m very skeptical about shopping online, similarly as many other Nigerians who have a disdain for buying things online. Although, shopping online relieves the stress you would have had touring a supermarket or a mall, it still has its challenges. From fraud and distrust, however, Konga Pay is an innovation unveiled to protect online shoppers.

Let’s meet Konga Pay

Similarly, Konga Pay is what Amazon is to online shoppers.  An one-click payment platform integrated with Eco bank, Access bank, FCMB bank, Diamond bank, Zenith Bank, Heritage Bank, UBA, First Bank, and GTB. Which allows for seamless movement of goods , services and payments. As it guarantees safety and trust, has eliminated the use of sentisive personal information such as internet banking passwords or card details.  Instead, a customer receives an authorization code that is secured and registered to the mobile phone number and a bank account.

How it works? 

Registration on Konga pay is simple and easy.

  • To get started, download the app on google play store or app store. Or sign up on the kongapay.com.

  • Enter your personal information. This includes your name and contact details.

  • The next step is to create a Pin and enter the verification code sent to your phone and you now  have a Kongapay account.

The requirement are divided into two levels:

KongaPay Classic:

– Name

– Phone number (Verified with One Time Password)

– Date of Birth

– Gender

– Home address

KongaPay Premium:

– Name

– Date of Birth

– Gender

– Home Address

– Card or Bank Account details


As a Konga Pay Calssic User, transactions can only be made when a Konga Pay user funds your wallet.

Konga Pay Classic and Konga Pay Premium

  • Only a maximum of 10,000 per transaction is allowed.
  • For a day, it is a maximum limit of 100,000.
