A web3 payment provider, Xion Global has collaborated with Metamask, a leading self-custody wallet provider. In a Thursday blog post, Xion Global confirmed the collaboration. According to the announcement, the effort is geared toward reshaping the world of decentralized payments in South Africa.
By integrating Metamask, Xion Global wants to ensure that South African customers can access web3 payments with ease. This means they will be able to connect their Metamask wallets to execute one-off token approvals so that they can make web3 payments in any of the client apps that belong to Xion.
In the same vein, Xion Global has also integrated “Scan to Pay,” powered by Ukheshe. This protocol is renowned as the biggest QR ecosystem in South Africa as it features over 700,000 vendors, 90 payment service providers, and several banks and fintech firms. By integrating this solution, consumers can make purchases or order online and make payments by scanning the QR code and linking their MetaMask wallet to make payments.
Worth noting that the one-click payment solution of Xion Global is powered by its Cross-Chain Payments Protocol. Meanwhile, this mechanism helps to streamline transactions across various blockchain ecosystems. It also features AML/KYT checks to stop the use of illegal or stolen funds in the ecosystem.
Outside that, Xion also looks to introduce a good collection of incentives for MetaMask users in the country. Some of the generous packages include loyalty rewards and cashback.
