– has signed a partnership agreement with leading fashion retailer LC Waikiki, which will enable customers to make payments from all LC Waikiki stores across Zambia through the Tingg digital payment platform.
The partnership reflects the growing synergies between retailers and payment solution providers across Africa, in serving a growing consumer base that is now preferring digital payment methods.
“As a result of the government’s efforts to eliminate cash handling by promoting contactless payments as a safer and more effective option post-COVID-19, we are seeing an increase in digital payments in Zambia. Additionally, more consumers are expressing a desire to use cash much less. The Zambian government, through regulators, continues to reaffirm this, as mobile money wallets are now more than ever a common way to store money,” said Gilbert Lungu, Country Manager, Cellulant Zambia. “Tingg by Cellulant (www.tingg.africa) is an easy to use, versatile and exciting service which has guaranteed advanced security and is password-protected.”
Sevda Bilen, Country Manager, LC Waikiki said using mobile money to pay for clothes and other accessories is going to be a huge advantage for the company in Zambia. “LC Waikiki Zambia customers now have a wider choice of payment methods. True to our mission that offers fashion at affordable prices in line with the belief that ‘everyone deserves to dress well’, every one of our clientele can now seamlessly pay at any of our stores through Tingg. Consistently providing convenience for our clientele is something we strive to achieve daily,” Bilen said.
She added: “As our business grows in Zambia, we are constantly looking for opportunities to add value to our customer’s experience of the LC Waikiki brand. The strategic partnership with Tingg by Cellulant represents our commitment to the Zambian market and we will continue to explore additional opportunities with the company.”
