The unique value we offer is access to the vast African market through our secure and guaranteed fraud free payment processes. Ignore the next greatest market in the World at your peril!! There are copyright issues; there is a different political system, as well as the obvious language barrier, cultural differences and alternative business code of conduct. Our knowledge of the local market and coupled with global exposure of our management team allows us to “think globally and act locally” to bring the much awaited and most sought after secure bridge to Africa. This enables commercial transactions to be actualised within the enclaves of trust which the world has been accustomed to over time.
Our mission is to pull down the barriers to ecommerce into and across the African continent be them financial, security, technical, psychological to empower people and brands to start selling over the internet to Africa.
