Jordan Olivas, the CEO of QisstPay, a Pakistan-based payment company that aims to provide an easy way to access credit was our guest in the 10th episode of the Fintech Founders Series.
The insightful discussion along with our hosts, Ronit Ghose, the Global Head of Fintech & Digital at Citi Global Insights and Gaurav Dhar, the CEO of Marshal Equipment & Trading Co. LLC & MENA FinTech Association Board Member. LLC, touched upon payments products in emerging market and QisstPay growth. We noted 3 takeaways from the session:
- When entering a new market, execution is key. Along with bringing the right people in and building an ecosystem.
- Jordan started by building trust and the platform with retailers before launching its 1-click checkout product.
- Pakistan in tech is phenomenal. There is great engineering talent over there, they have various opportunities.
As Jordan said,
“You must have the best product and communication in the world when you walk into emerging countries. It really showed us that there is a lot of frustration in the market and it has been ignored for a long time.“
