Columbus, Ohio (PressExposure) September 02, 2009 -- In response to the popularity of 2Checkout.comâs (2CO) free signup offer for South African businesses searching for the ideal e-commerce solution, 2CO has extended its offer through September 30, to provide all South African businesses additional time to take advantage of the offer.
According to Vic Cleary, E-Commerce Strategy Manager for 2Checkout, âFor many years, hundreds of South African businesses have utilized 2Checkout to sell online due to our international friendly business model. The problems South Africans typically encounter with e-commerce are similar â higher than average interchange rates, denial of application due to geographic status, and the inability to remit online payments to their personal bank accounts. We want to ensure all businesses struggling through this process are fully aware of the 2Checkout advantage and provide them a no risk opportunity to signup, so they can experience the difference for themselves,â Cleary added.
Detailed information on 2Checkoutâs built-in feature set and a link to the free signup (a $49 USD value) for South African businesses are available at http://www.2checkout.com/campaigns/sa .
2Checkout makes it possible for South African businesses to accept the worldâs most popular payment methods, including PayPal, and remit all payments directly to South African bank accounts, which has been a sticking point for many entrepreneurs from the country for a number of years. In addition, by the end of September, 2CO will accept five additional international currencies, including the South African Rand, making it even more convenient for South African businesses to accept and remit payments through the e-commerce solution.
âWith the removal of a number of popular online products from our Prohibited Products List and the acceptance of five more international currencies by the end of September, 2CO continues to evolve and prove our position as a leading international e-commerce provider for countries like South Africa, where unique banking rules and higher levels of perceived risk oftentimes make it difficult for legitimate online businesses to thrive in the worldwide marketplace,â Cleary added. âWe want to reach out to these business owners and make sure they know that an option does exist and itâs possible for them to live their entrepreneurial dreams.â
