So there have been some teasers popping up around Accra with the recurring theme of “Pay Like A Boss” with no idea who it really belongs to.
Well this morning at the La Palm Royal Beach Hotel, Slydepay laid claim to these teasers by unveiling their “Pay Like A Boss” campaign. It seems that the world is moving towards a cashless existence and Ghana is no different. Slydepay is your mobile money app that aids you in sending money from your bank account to any mobile money account. Their aim is to make payment transactions to anybody simple. easy and fast. The Pay Like A Boss campaign empowers you to skip the mobile money and bank cues, pay and send money from the comfort of your chair through your phone, like a boss!
At the launch, Slydepay explained what the app is and what how it makes your life more boss-like. The campaign, as explained by Kofi Ocloo (the General Manager of Now Available Africa), is to encourage all Ghanaians to find the Boss in themselves and of course to pay like one by doing it the easiest way possible. An ad for the campaign was released that would be on it’s YouTube platform, along with a video that explained how to use the app that lives on the Slydepay site.
Derrydean Dadzie, the CEO of Dreamoval (developers of Slydepay) emphasised at the launch that Slydepay is an app that celebrates inclusiveness. The app can be downloaded on any smartphone channels: Apple Store, Google Play Store and the Windows Store. If you don’t have a smartphone, that’s ok. Slydepay unveiled their USSD shortcode (*718*25#) that will enable you to send money from your Slydepay account to any mobile money account. They also announced ‘SlydeRemit’. This feature allows users to send money from their Slydepay account, mobile money account or a linked bank card straight to their bank accounts. Slydepay also lets you buy airtime, pay bills (Water, DSTV, ECG, StarTimes etc), pay merchants that are associated with Slydepay or accept mobile money payments (HoneySuckle, Zoobashop, Palace).
