Ghana’s economy continues to grow steadily, and the private sector expands with new local and foreign businesses entering several, varied markets.

Though modern in many other aspects, including the existence of large ‘malls’ and retail stores, Ghana has yet to embrace e-commerce as a working option or aspect of our retail industry.

The existence of high-speed, reliable Internet facilities by providers in the country has been a first step in moving Ghana towards an ecommerce driven future. Subsequently, a commensurate online payment model is a valuable and necessary add on as Ghana moves to first-world economy status with the might of ecommerce driving our industries.

iWallet a new online payment system in Ghana was launched on the 9th of November 2011 in Ghana was by DreamOval Ltd, one of the leading software development companies in the country and this marked the era of a Revolutionary Internet Payment Service.

The service was and is still expected to aid local merchants as well as individuals to make and receive payments of products and services online bought online.

Along the way somewhere in the iWallet rebranded to Slydepay with a focus on delivering a much better all-round experience in terms of security, user experience, UI/UX and generally improved version on iwallet.
