Fincra provides a simple and secure payment platform for Nigerian businesses to collect online and offline payments.
After checking all the boxes of everything required to be a successful business, a good payment strategy is the ideal closure of all efforts. A payment strategy involves all aspects of the payment process-how; you accept payments from customers and make payments to cover business expenses and needs.
While offering different payment methods and channels is an overarching strategy that fits all business types, strategies differ for various business segments and where they sell.
For businesses selling online, having the best user experience with their payment pages, fraud and chargebacks, finding the best methods and channels to accept payments, card abandonment, etc., are some of the challenges they face. While offline sellers have to deal with long wait times for customers, failed transactions etc., for in-person transactions.
With money being the object generally accepted as a means for payment in trade and businesses, the ease with which it moves around is pivotal to a thriving economy. This phenomenon is why constant innovations and technologies have made moving money as easy as possible.
Accepting payments from Nigeria
These innovations have significantly impacted how people sell these days in Nigeria, either online or offline. The improvements in payment systems have brought about payment gateways that process cards for online and offline transactions.
For selling online, other innovations include payment pages, mobile wallets, marketplace websites and blockchain technology.
The innovations are for more than just online selling. For in-person transactions, there have been some innovations in using POS Terminals to accept payments.
For any business, the path to success and profitability is paved with a series of intentional decisions, one of which is working with a proven payment partner to simplify payment needs, including accepting payments as a business in Nigeria.
