What is “Abeg”?
Launched in 2019, Abeg is one of Nigeria’s applications made by Abeg technologies. Its co-founders include Muheez Akanni, Dare Adekoya and Michael Okoh.
The Abeg app is a simple platform where you can ask for money from other Abeg users that are on your contact list. To do this, you only need to type in their Abeg tag. You can also send money to other Abeg users on your platform.
Similar in features to the cash app, it possesses a user-friendly and clean interface that allows you to request and send money to friends and families. Once registered, you will have a tag known as the Abegtag, allowing you to interact with other people on the social app.
Features of the Abeg app
Abeg makes it easier, faster, and better to make payments. With its flexibility, you can spend money on what you want and when you want. It is an interesting and interactive application that you can use for your daily transactions.
The basic feature of this application is sending and requesting money. However, there are so many other amazing features of this application that will be mentioned below.
Requesting for money
This is one of the outstanding features of Abeg. Though there are so many ways of receiving payments, there has been no faster and more convenient way than this application. With it, all you need to do is to collect their Abegtag and request money from them. This saves you from copying and pasting bank details.
Just like receiving, it is also easier to send money to other people within Nigeria. No matter how far they are.
Social media timeline
Like Twitter and some social media applications, it allows you to follow other Abeg users. It also has a timeline to post and see the news feed of the people you have followed.
Sometimes, you might need an amount of money urgently. Instead of going through a long process associated with loans, you can request a loan using the app in a few minutes.
Nigerians are very familiar with the term “Ajo,” which means savings, but this is usually done physically. But with Abeg, users would soon be able to save online as it is an upcoming feature in the application.
