User Case - Bridging payments

Connecting payment solutions

Centiglobe provides a white-label app. It supports functionality for connecting to gateways, transfers between client accounts, and cross-border payments. It has optional features, such as the user wallet, that allows users to manage their fiat-backed blockchain assets. The app is available both for Android and iOS.

Example 1: Using Paypal to make a transfer to Alipay

Bob is an American visiting China. They have just been to dinner. Now Bob wants to pay Alice. Bob is using Paypal but Alice does not have Paypal, she uses Alipay. A service provider connected to the Centiglobe network solves this problem by bridging these two payment systems enabling Bob to transfer money to Alice instantly.

Example 2: Using Swedish Swish to make payment in Kenya

Carol is a Swedish citizen visiting Kenya. She is buying groceries in a store. The main method of digital payment in Kenya is MPesa. Carol does not have MPesa but uses her Swedish Centiglobe provider’s application that offers her Swedish payment methods. She scans the MPesa QR Code in the store and then pays with her main digital payment system Swish.
