SlimTrader (Nigeria)

SlimTrader was great for any business but particularly useful for businesses that had limited access to banks or conventional methods of payment. The app allowed users to carry out e-commerce transactions through any phone that could connect to the Internet. The app even worked via SMS on phones that did not connect to the Internet. Through a simple series of text messages, a user could pay for goods or services.
