The challenge of monetizing mobile games in Africa

Mobile gaming is a rapidly growing industry in Africa, with millions of people across the continent playing games on their smartphones daily. However, monetizing these games can be a challenge due to the fragmented payment landscape in the region. Many players in Africa do not have access to credit cards or bank accounts, commonly used payment methods in other parts of the world. Instead, they rely on alternative payment methods, such as mobile money, which are not always easy for developers to integrate into their games.

Furthermore, the payment landscape in Africa is highly fragmented, with different payment methods being used in different countries and regions. This can make it difficult for developers to monetize their games across the entire continent, as they may need to integrate with multiple payment providers in order to reach all potential players.
