What do South Africans love more than a braai?

Online payments! They’re fast, they’re convenient, and they’re germ-free. Best of all, they can be done via the platforms customers actually use every day, eliminating the often cumbersome process of logging in and out of internet banking.

If you thought e-commerce was reserved for big businesses, think again.

As e-commerce continues its skyward trajectory, traditionally offline businesses are adding online payment platforms to their offering.

From tragically hip Instagram thrift shops and the braid lady who’s got you looking on fleek, to the plumber who braves the curfew to rescue you from a dodgy toilet, online payment platforms are transforming the way businesses get paid.

Online payment platforms make getting paid easier

Convenience factor aside, customers are far more likely to make a purchase if they can pay and checkout easily. Online payments that don’t require digital gymnastics just to get to the ‘buy now’ page mean that more customers move through to checkout. More customers = more sales. Thanks, internet!

Online payment platforms protect you from the seldom-honoured “I’ll EFT you when I get home”

It’s one thing giving customers the benefit of the doubt, it’s another matter entirely having to chase after payments. This doesn’t only eat up a lot of your time, it creates havoc with your cash flow too. The answer? Our online payment platform: Yoco Link.
