PayU opens up new markets for South African online businesses
PayU SafeShop payment gateway now accepts cash-based online payment method, Ukash
PayU Payment Solutions, a leading South African online payment service provider, today announced a partnership that enables online businesses to accept Ukash as an additional cash-based online payment method.
“Customers who do not have credit cards want to enjoy the cost-savings and convenience of shopping online. Our partnership with Ukash enables online businesses to service cash customers who previously could not be reached, as well as open up a whole new market for these businesses,” says Mark Chirnside, CEO PayU MEA.
PayU SafeShop, an established payment processing product that has developed and shaped e-commerce in South Africa for the past decade, now enables online businesses to securely accept and process 11 different payment methods, including Ukash. Online merchants can enable Ukash payments on their Web sites by requesting PayU to enable the capability for their shopping basket.
David Hunter, Chief Executive Officer of Ukash, said: “Partnering with PayU was a natural choice for us. By integrating with SafeShop payment gateway, we can now offer our customers access to most of the major South African airlines and leading online retailers, and empower everyone to use cash electronically.”
