Raven, popularly known as “The People’s Bank of Africa,” has introduced a groundbreaking addition to its all-in-one financial ecosystem for individuals and businesses, “The Raven Payverse.” The unveiling of “BankBox,” a portable point-of-sale system, marks yet another significant stride in Raven’s commitment to transforming the landscape of financial services across Nigeria while fostering financial inclusion.
The BankBox, which is an update of Raven POS was introduced as a more efficient payment device for businesses of all sizes.
Highlighting the remarkable advantages of the innovative device, Raven’s CEO, Uchenna Nnodim, emphasized that “the BankBox offers business owners a compact payment device that fulfils all their banking needs, transforming smartphones into offline payment processors for seamless payment collections.”
Developed in-house by Raven’s dedicated team of experts, the BankBox represents a pioneering solution that revolutionizes the checkout process for small and large-scale businesses and service providers.
With the ability to manage multiple devices simultaneously through the accompanying plugin, the BankBox streamlines transaction management, ensuring a smooth and efficient payment process for merchants and their customers.
Discussing the extensive development process, Micheal Ibitoye, Chief Liaison Officer at Raven, underscored that the concept for the BankBox originated from exhaustive research aimed at identifying the key challenges faced by merchants during the sales and checkout process.
He emphasized that the primary goal was to create a solution that not only addresses these challenges but also enhances the overall efficiency and convenience of payment processing for businesses.
Designed for Every Business
Designed for every business, the BankBox offers a much-simplified payment option than traditional Android POS terminals.
For one, it is a much more affordable and accessible device offering significantly lower transaction costs. Registered and unregistered business owners can simply request a device by simply downloading the BankBox app from the Android and iOS stores.
The compact size of the BankBox also allows it to adapt seamlessly to the dynamic requirements of businesses on the move, which makes it efficient for service providers like Uber drivers, logistic companies etc.
Businesses utilizing the BankBox can accept transfer and card payments, with funds promptly deposited into their assigned virtual accounts, enjoying same-day settlements and providing a range of additional functions. Including its ability to connect to both iOS and Android devices and multi-device functionality which enables customers to complete payments using their mobile devices.
Moreover, this compact device comes with no set targets, effectively removing financial constraints for businesses.
