A few years ago, it was very difficult for an African based business to have an opportunity of selling goods online. Furthermore, most Africans were still sceptical about making payments online due to many online scamming stories they were exposed to.
However, a lot has changed. Most website owners & businesses have embraced the need for good encryption and online user protection. It is now common to find every website with a secure label on its URL.
In addition, African payment gateway providers now provide online facilities to manage and run the whole payment process on their secured platform alleviating website owners from the trouble of dealing with security configurations on their end.
