As technology keeps evolving, the ability to accept card payments is fast becoming a necessity for all businesses. Does your business accept card payments?

Technology has leveled the playing field and now, small and big companies alike can reach customers across the globe. Customers also have instant access to information and can make purchases from just about anywhere in the world. Businesses that fail to adapt to this shift are setting themselves up for failure.

Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in Sub Saharan Africa (SSA) are embracing digitalization, which has in turn enabled them to increase their growth and competitiveness. Pesapal offers Pesapal Sabi: A point of sale terminal that simplifies how you accept and manage card payments within your business. It is an aggregated solution that offers businesses a till facility, acceptance of debit and credit cards and transaction receipts. With Pesapal Sabi, merchants are assured of a simple sign up and set up process, as well as competitive transaction rates.

Finding The Right Sabi Terminal That Fits Your Business
The advent of card payments, online banking apps, and mobile wallets has resulted in more customers opting to make digital payments as opposed to using cash. Pesapal offers online payment options, as well as point of sale payments through both traditional and mobile POS systems. Card acceptance at your store helps you stay profitable and competitive. Pesapal card readers make it easy to accept secure payments in your store or on-the-go.
