About Us

Back in 2006 we identified a gap in the African online payments landscape. Merchants and consumers alike wanted the online arena to be open for payments, booking and purchasing. However, online payment processors were hard to find.

We wanted not only to fill that gap but to do more than that. By enabling customers and merchants to transact securely online and offline we were able to facilitate the growth of local businesses, from airlines to hotels and eShops. During the years we have led the online payments industry into the centre stage. We managed to turn online transactions to a preferred choice of conducting business across all industries.

Since then DPO has grown from an East African payment service provider into the biggest pan African PSP. We expanded our footprint into West Africa through organic growth and to Southern Africa by M&A (through its subsidiary DPO PayGate).

By constantly implementing new and advanced payment technologies and by providing the highest security levels we truly enabled our customers to have the freedom to pay and get paid anywhere, anytime.
