Latitude MD and CEO Ahmed Fahour said the new partnerships meant Genoapay now reached tens of thousands more customers in New Zealand across a wide range of retail segments.

“We are thrilled with the momentum that Genoapay is gaining with merchants and their customers, who are attracted to the flexibility of paying for their purchases over 10 equal payments, with no interest,” he said.
