Purpose of the Plugin

What is it used for and who can use it?

The main target user for this plugin is a Business owner transforming his business from physical shop/store into an online store or shop (E-commerce)

Our [Mobile Money Payments® Integration Plugin] allows a business owner to accept real-time mobile money payments on your e-commerce website, and get the funds liquidated to his or her mobile money or bank account after an online sale.

It enables an online shop/merchant/seller to accept & seamlessly collect Mobile Money payments (MTN MoMo & Airtel Money supported) automatically on your online shop (otherwise known as e-commerce website). It works with e-commerce websites built on WordPress and having WooCommerce plugin as the shop or shopping system

It creates an opportunity for sellers of goods or services, and for mobile money users to buy online easily, which favours both groups.

Convenience to Customers

Give your customers a new level of convenience, by allowing them to shop and pay for your goods securely from your website. We have designed, deployed, tested an integrated Mobile Money payment solution, supporting MTN & Airtel networks. Mobile money subscribers on those networks can make payment directly in a seller’s website (whom we call a merchant), in two-easy steps at check-out, to complete the payment. As long as the merchant has the plugin installed and configured.

With this integration, your business can easily gain fast customers who are too time-bad to visit, by giving them this option to transact with you without requiring them to physically go in at your shop/store/office. The goods or services listed within your well-developed website (storefront), can conveniently be paid for using Mobile Money embedded in your website.
