MOROCCO – Morocco’s fast rising fintech startup, OnePay has secured a total of US$409, 000 from the Maroc Numeric Fund II to fund its expansion plans.

OnePay in a press statement revealed that it intends to invest the funds in technical, marketing and commercial resources in order to extend its network to a large number of users.

OnePay, which operates as a distributor of means of payment and aggregator of payment and value-added services in electronic transactions, further explained that it intended to channel all the funds towards the development of its Moroccan market.

The co-founder of OnePay, Mr. Karim Zaitouni has accumulated 21 years of experience as an innovative and dynamic player in the field of electronic payment and value-added transactions.

He is therefore seen as a key pillar in OnePay even as it strives to act and serve as a reference solution for the aggregation of payments and value-added services in electronic transactions.

OnePay is the result of a co-investment between the MNF II fund and SisPay S.A., an expert in the development of banking and private payment solutions and value-added services.

Its unique integrated platform” SISWIN”, is now installed in several major accounts in Morocco and Africa.

The SISWIN platform offers a single homogeneous and harmonized platform for a number of financial services including payment tools, management of virtual cards, Mobile Wallets and value-added services such as loyalty schemes, oil payment systems, phone top-up, and discount cards.
