Ghana: Buy Web Hosting, Domain Names & pay online with your ATM card

Bank ATM card

  • Amalgamated Bank
  • Intercontinental Bank
  • United Bank for Africa (UBA)

The current situation of e-commerce in Ghana is less than exciting with only a few having access to Mastercard or Visa cards than can be used over the Internet. Many have had to drive through traffic to the bank to pay Web4Africa for their domain names & web hosting. Bank deposits are less than ideal for true e-commerce and come with a baggage of challenges:

  • time wasted in traffic could be applied into more meaningful endeavours
  • payment cannot be made on national holidays or weekends (some bank branches open for a limited period on Saturdays)
  • some banking halls can be very busy with spiralling queues of customers, resulting in a further waste of precious time

Thus, accepting regular ATM cards payment online gives real-meaning to e-commerce for residents of Ghana. With Web4Africa being the leading web hosting company in Ghana, a lot of website owners would be positively impacted by this new development.

Note however that Web4Africa has always accepted payment online via several international means like credit/debit cards, PayPal, Liberty Reserve, e-gold (no longer supported), Alertpay, MoneyBookers, PerfectMoney for several years.

The new payment method implemented on www.web4africa.net is powered by eTranzact Ghana Limited.

eCommerce: Website Development and Data management

eTranzact Ghana

Oluniyi D. Ajao of  Web4Africa would be speaking on 28th May 2010 at Etranzact’s Business Incubator programme on “eCommerce: Website Development & Data management”.

eTranzact

eTranzact

BUSINESS INCUBATION PROGRAM
Theme/Topic : The Business of eCommerce
Date : 28th May 2010 (10:00am – 3:00pm)
Venue : Busy Internet

Introduction to the programme

The eTranzact Business Incubation Program was developed as an avenue to encourage small to medium enterprises to adapt the use of technology to expand their business operations and/or create additional revenue streams for themselves.

This quarter, the Business Incubation Program will focus on ecommerce and the advantages of an online presence and how these can be used by individuals and SME’s in Ghana to build
sustainable businesses.

This topic was picked based on the identified need for information and knowledge we have encountered in our industry. eTranzact is an electronic payment solutions platform that provides individuals, businesses and financial institutions with means to pay and/or receive money using their mobile phones, the internet, POS terminals, and at bank outlets. We provide the technological interface that automates all payment processes, and facilitates the movement of funds electronically from the payer to the payee.

We have already signed on a number of entrepreneurs onto the eTranzact platform who use our API to receive payments on their websites from customers. However, there is a noticeable lack of knowledge on the proper management, development and marketing of an ecommerce website and also the financial know-how to sustain such an enterprise. This incubation program aims to considerably reduce this knowledge gap, and to further spread the use of ecommerce in Ghana.

Other speakers/panelists & partner organizations:

  • Kofi Dadzie – MD, Rancard Solutions
  • Nelson Da Seglah – Group ISM, UT Financial Services
  • George Babafemi – eTranzact Ghana Limited
  • JE Allotey-Pappoe – Business Ghana
  • Meltwater Entrepreneurial School of Technology
  • Busy Internet
  • Citi Fm
