The simplest way to receive payments from Canada, USA and UK without a website.

As your business expands, you begin to seek new ways to boost revenue, increase your customer base and enhance your brand appeal to new and existing customers. Most business owners resort to mapping out effective marketing strategies, offering rewards (discounts, freebies etc.) to loyal customers, introducing new products etc. However, a major way through which modern day businesses expand their operations is by taking their product or service to international markets.

Taking your business global is a great move for expansion as an international customer base provides access to foreign opportunities, new sources of revenue and enhances the reputation of your business. However, navigating the international market space is not a walk in the park as there are many factors to put into consideration…

Economic and political landscape, laws and regulations are a few important factors to consider when entering the international market. However, the most important factor to put into consideration is PAYMENT as having the right payment structure that caters to international payments is vital for your business growth.
