Do you remember hearing your parents talk about paying your foreign schools fees? Or hearing your Aunty complain about how she had to use cash to pay her medical bills when she went abroad for a check-up? If you do then you know how expensive and tedious it is to send money from a Nigerian bank account to a foreign account.
Now that you’re all grown up and making your plenty money, your nephew is calling you to pay for his summer coding class in MIT and your Aunty is asking you to change money for her before she travels for her checkup. Double wahala. Imagine if you could just go online and use your Naira debit card to pay for both your nephew’s foreign school fees and your aunty’s medical bills. No more wahala.
Today, we’re excited to announce our recent partnership with Flywire to make it easier for Nigerians to pay for international school fees and medical bills using their local cards and bank accounts.
Flywire makes it super easy for international students and patients to pay their tuition and medical bills to universities and healthcare providers around the world. Flywire currently allows students and patients in over 95 countries pay for their bills in their local currency. By leveraging on our technology to expand into Nigeria, Nigerian students and patients can use their local bank accounts and local Visa, Mastercard and Verve cards to pay their bills on Flywire’s platform.
How It Works for Foreign School Fees
1. Visit Flywire’s website to sign up or log into your account
2. Search for your desired school
3. Choose Nigeria as the country you are paying from
P.S: The great part of Flywire’s integration with Rave is that your total amount shows up in Naira so you know exactly what you will be charged.
4. Choose to pay with your local card or select bank account
5. Confirm your bank account and card details and you’re all set to go.
With our partnership with Flywire, it is now easy for Nigerians to pay for their education bills from over 1,200 universities globally using their local cards, bank accounts, and mobile money.
Flywire and Flutterwave’s partnership is live in Nigeria, Kenya, and Ghana with plans to expand into more African countries in the near future.
