PAYFORT Helps Arab Star­tups Cre­ate On­line Stores with Shopify

Arabnet - The Quarterly - - Industry Stories -

Payfort an­nounced that it is now a shopify pay­ment part­ner. Payfort will help star­tups and SMBS in the Arab re­gion cre­ate on­line stores us­ing Payfort’s on­line pay­ment so­lu­tions. Payfort’s mer­chants will be able to use Shopify’s soft­ware to de­sign, set-up and man­age their on­line stores as well as adding ecom­merce fea­tures to their web­sites to sell prod­ucts. It in­tro­duced its START so­lu­tion last year to al­low star­tups and SMBS to fast-track their on­line pay­ment set-up and ben­e­fit from new, easy-to-use on­line pay­ment ap­pli­ca­tions. Busi­nesses can set-up a START ac­count in less than 5 min­utes, with­out be­ing re­quired to pro­vide a de­posit, avoid­ing com­pli­cated and time-con­sum­ing bank pro­ce­dures tra­di­tion­ally associated with es­tab­lish­ing ecom­merce op­er­a­tions in the Arab world. This is yet another fa­cil­i­ta­tor the re­gion is wit­ness­ing as part of the shift to­wards the on­line world. Shopgo is Shopify’s com­peti­tor that is ac­tive in Jor­dan set­ting up on­line pay­ment sys­tems, web­site de­sign, and tech­ni­cal sup­port and sign­ing 140 do­mes­tic and re­gional com­pa­nies, in­clud­ing mu­si­cal in­stru­ment re­tailer Feesheh and Vir­gin Me­ga­s­tore.
