Geegpay Monthly Roundup: February 2024

February is over, but the hustle never stops! While the world was busy with lovey-dovey stuff, we at Geegpay were busy making things even better for you.

Here's a quick rundown of what went down in February:

Raenest and Geegpay at ATS Nairobi

Our parent company, Raenest, was the headline sponsor of this year’s Africa Tech Summit Nairobi, and we were there to discuss the future of global payments. Our founders shared their expertise on unlocking global opportunities for freelancers and professionals and how businesses can enjoy seamless cross-border transactions and become investor-ready. And we even gifted 4 lucky attendees tickets to ATS London and $200 each! You can check Raenest’s Twitter for highlights and key takeaways.

Love for our Upwork Freelancers

To celebrate Valentine's Day (and because you rock), we offered Upwork users a special treat - 0% deposit fees when withdrawing from Upwork into your Geegpay USD account. This offer is still running until March 31st, so don't miss out! If you signed up between February and until the end of March, you can claim your free withdrawals here or here.

Naija, We Got You

February was full of offers. We made all transfers to your Nigerian account completely free, forever! This means you can keep more of your hard-earned cash without worrying about transaction fees.
