Funanga Expands to North America via Now Prepay Partnership

The recent launch represents an important goal the Berlin-based instant cash payment service provider set for this year

Funanga is a fast-growing, Berlin-based instant cash payment services provider, delivering convenient solutions for online payment providers. The company has been continuously expanding its global reach and earlier this week celebrated its launch in North America. The provider unveiled a new deal with Payment Source’s Now Prepay, effectively expanding its services to Canada.

The launch into Canada marked a strategic achievement for Funanga. This is because thanks to the recent launch, the company’s CashtoCode service is now available on every continent, reaffirming the potential, popularity and convenience of the solution.

Thanks to the new collaboration, Now Prepay customers will benefit from Funanga’s CashtoCode service, allowing in-store cash payments, buying digital goods, as well as adding funds for e-wallets and digital accounts. Under the terms of the new deal, more than 15,000 Now Prepay retail locations, including post offices, around Canada can benefit from the CashtoCode service.

As much as a milestone moment the entry in Canada is, Funanga explained it plans to continue growing further. The company said that besides Canada, it plans to expand further in North America. One strategic market that Funanga plans to penetrate is the United States. The instant cash payment service provider said that it seeks to enter the US early next year.

A launch in North America was a key target for Funanga at the start of 2023, and a Canadian integration was requested from several Funanga merchants and many customers who wanted to use the service in the region. With this expansion, Funanga’s CashtoCode service is now available on every continent,
