FinTech startup BrilliantPay is now live in Kenya

by Milicent Atieno

BrilliantPay, a Kenyan startup, has launched its suite of payment APIs and tools to support e-commerce companies and organization in accepting cashless payments.

BrilliantPay suite of payment solutions supports the majority of payment flows including payment assurance, recurring payments, disbursements, and one-time payments.

The CEO, Tonnie Nyabuto says he began designing the solution back in August 2016 after he came across trouble handling payment solutions built for a certain e-commerce website.

This problem led me to assemble a team to create an ideal solution for marketplaces, from which we extended functionality to serve all kinds of online commerce, making them highly scalable,” said Nyabuto.

People use online platforms to make purchase decisions and compare prices, but don’t actually pay for the items online. This makes it hard for these companies to make money and scale. Businesses need to assure customers of value for money and have plans for when they don’t deliver as promised. That is where we come in.”

Nyabuto says, BrilliantPay assures its customers of value for money. At the same time, vendors can be assured they will receive the payments.

Uptake has been positive so far, and we’re very excited about it. More businesses are requesting our services. We have begun operations in Kenya, with most of our current clients based in Nairobi and Mombasa. With the fast rate of client adoption, which is better than we anticipated, we might beat our expansion plan, which is to create digital payment solutions for Africa. We are looking to expand into six other countries in Africa within the next three years and 10 more in the next five years.”
