Our Early Stages
Selcom was founded in 2001 as a prepaid airtime distributor
In those early days, we ventured into prepaid airtime distribution and internet offerings
Growth and Diversity
We diversified our portfolio massively
Within a few years we were the first pioneers to begin the entire country’s first bank to wallet and wallet to bank transfers, our 40+ bill payment portfolio, and quickly grew our agent footprint across the country
We offered our services online for the first time
Due to growing demand, Selcom decided to launch the first online platform called Selcom Online to accept local bill payments using debit or credit cards from abroad
Scaling up with New Ventures
We grew our team and ventured into new spaces
As opportunities knocked on our door, we decided to venture into a budding need for an easy and secure merchant payment solutions with Selcom Pay. We also ventured into Selcom Card.
We partnered with Mastercard to launch multiple products
In 2017, we partnered with Mastercard, as their Go-To-Market partner in Tanzania, to pair up SelcomPay and Masterpass QR to expand our growth and base across the nation. Our scope was not limited to this, and there were spaces such as Issuing and Acquiring for us to explore together.
In The Future
This is only the beginning.
Selcom envisions scaling up its operations across the continent soon, and to continue staying two steps ahead within the financial and payment services industry
