Twitter adds Flutterwave, Paga as Payment Providers to Tips in Nigeria

Twitter has announced the addition of the pan-African payment solutions Barter by Flutterwave and paga as additional payment providers to a feature on its platform called Tips.

Tips is a new way to monetise on Twitter and enables people on the service to send and receive funds as a token of appreciation.

Barter is a web and mobile app, from a payments technology company by Flutterwave, that lets users send and receive money from abroad instantly and safely at affordable rates.

Flutterwave Chief Executive Officer, Olugbenga Agboola, said in a statement that Tips feature created an avenue to reward a content creator as frequent as a Twitter user and creators.

“We are excited to be partnering with them to create a safe, fast and easy way to tip these amazing creators through Barter by Flutterwave.

“We have the reach and abilities to enable creators from Africa to receive tips from parts of the world. I will likely be one of the biggest users of Tips, and that’s because it’s an awesome feature that has huge potential for the creator economy in Africa, ”he said.

Also speaking, Tayo Oviosu, the Founder and CEO of Paga, said: “Our mission at Paga is to simplify payments for individuals and businesses.

“Through this partnership with Twitter, via Tips, we can create an effective way for creators to get paid into their Paga accounts, directly from Twitter.

Twitter started experimenting Tips feature with a small group of people on the platform, including journalists, creators, and more in May 2021.

Since then, Tips has become available on iOS and Android, and to everyone who is 18+ on Twitter, including in Nigeria and across the continent.

How to Set UP Twitter Tips

Turning on Tips adds an icon next to your profile, which will now also have a link to Barter and Paga, for quick and easy person-to-person tipping.

Tap the icon, and you’ll see the payment services or platforms that the account has enabled, you can select whichever you prefer. Once you select the service you want to use, you’ll be taken off Twitter to the selected app to send funds

Twitter takes no cut. Barter and Paga join Chipper, which was rolled out in 2021, as payment services available for people in various African countries.

How to Add Your Bitcoin Wallet to Twitter

when you enable Tips on your profile, you can also add your Bitcoin address. People can copy your address and paste it into a Bitcoin wallet of their choice to send you a payment directly.
