According to Vic Cleary, E-Commerce Strategy Manager for 2CO, “Hundreds of South African-based businesses have been using 2Checkout to sell online for years due to our international friendly business model. Recently, we have been following a series of threads discussing the difficulties faced by South Africans while attempting to sell online and the problems are always the same - high rates, application denials, and the inability to remit payments to their personal bank accounts. After reading this, we decided it was time to answer a number of the questions readers had posted about 2CO and place them in one location where South Africans can better understand why 2Checkout is an ideal solution for these problems, and provide them direct access to a free signup offer, so they experience the difference at no risk,” Cleary added. The page can be viewed at http://www.2checkout.com/
In addition to the fact that 2Checkout makes it possible for South African businesses to accept all of the most popular payment methods, including PayPal, and remit these payments to South African bank accounts, 2CO will soon make it possible for businesses to remit payments in South African Rand, and has shortened its prohibited products list opening a number of popular products and services for sale.
“Our business model naturally matches the needs of South African online businesses and we pride ourselves on being an ideal solution for them. We look forward to helping more South Africans expand their businesses through our free offer and live their entrepreneurial dreams,” Cleary concluded.
