Sync Payments API

We typically recommend our Async Payments API for most use-cases, but for cases where the partner requires an API that is synchronous, we do have the Sync Payments API.

Mobile Network Operator (MNO) partners, in particular, can use this API to connect to the MFS Africa Hub to collect and disburse payments to/from other Hub partners.

The API is structured into two sections, depending on payment type:

  1. Money remittance
    Covering money transfers to mobile wallets and cash pick-up vouchers.

  2. Airtime top-up
    Covering the delivery of airtime to mobile subscribers.

Log and commit

Both types of transactions follow a log and commit structure, allowing you to post the transaction and then commit it later.

Before logging the transaction, we also give you the option to validate the account that you are sending to ensure that they will be able to receive the funds.
