Editor's note:

So, we've migrated from our old corporate website domain,, to a new one: Also, we have updated our name from “Korapay” to “Kora.” I would like to take this opportunity to explain the reason behind this change.

Over the last few years, we have grown our business at Kora from primarily a payments company to an infrastructure. With our services now powering brands from logistics to healthcare to FMCG, we realised Korapay no longer reflected our new range, impact on Africa and intentions for the future. Hence the name change.

Our new name, Kora, captures the essence of our new direction. It’s only fitting that we update our online address accordingly. 

I know what some of you are thinking; "How is this change going to affect me?". Well, it won't affect you at all.

All existing accounts and information have been transferred seamlessly to the new website. Your integration with Kora is still active, and you can still log in with your username and password at without interruption. The move won't affect our services either. Kora is still committed to providing you with the best payment engine in Africa. 

Check out our new home at, look around and let us know if you have any thoughts. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed building it.

We will continue improving our corporate website with information highlighting our innovative products. You will see a change to our logotype to the simple "kora" wordmark, and you will begin to see these changes on our digital and physical assets. 

We hope that you like this extended version of our Kora story. If you have used the old Korapay logo in any of your media or product materials, please assist us in updating them. See the updated brand assets and brand guide at this link. Contact us at if you want more support on how to use our new brand assets.
