Do you have a website? What if I told you that you could turn your regular marketing website into an e-commerce website, accepting payments by credit card, EFT and direct deposit, without having to add complicated code for shopping cart capabilities to your website? It’s true – you can sell your products directly through your website, through a secure payment gateway, without the costly fees of hiring a web programmer.
Use Setcom’s easy to use selling tools
If you used FrontPage, Dreamweaver, or other WYSIWYG editors such as KompoZer, Pagebreeze or WordPress to build your website, you can easily add one of Setcom’s free selling tools to your site. These tools will allow you to add a Shopping Basket or Buy Now buttons to your website, letting your customers pick the products they want to purchase on your site, and then check out through Setcom’s secure payment gateway.
No fuss application
Unlike applying for a merchant account at a bank, obtaining a Setcom account is a real breeze. You can start accepting payments by credit card, POLi, eDeposit and eCheque almost immediately. Your funds are kept in what they call an “electronic wallet” and you can withdraw money whenever you want.
Free setup and no monthly charges
While some merchant accounts will cost you an arm and a leg to set up, getting your Setcom account is free. There are also no monthly charges. Even the Shopping Basket and Buy Now buttons are free. When you make a sale, you are charged a percentage of the selling price (ranging from 2.9% to 4.9%, depending on the payment method used) and a R2.50 transaction fee (excl. VAT). You also pay R8.00 (excl. VAT) when you want to withdraw your accumulated funds into your business bank account.
