In the recent past, the only businesses that could afford to accept payments digitally were medium to large businesses that had the funds to build sophisticated eCommerce websites, procure a POS machine or qualify to receive one for free from a financial institution. This has greatly limited smaller stores and merchants on social platforms from adopting a standardised digital payment method. Many rely on cash or manual bank transfers which are highly unpredictable and difficult to reconcile.
To solve this problem, Tingg Africa has developed a simple technology that eliminates the need for an eCommerce website or a POS machine before you receive payments from your customers. Tingg is a digital payment platform that allows all types of businesses, both physical and online, to send and receive payments as well as manage business transaction reports all from one single account. Here are three alternative payment methods that you can offer your buyers through Tingg.
1. Accept Payment Instore with a QR Code
Instead of a POS at the payment terminal in your store, why not offer buyers a QR code or link with which they can pay for purchases? If your business operates a physical store in Nigeria and Kenya, all you need to do is set up an account for your business on tingg.africa, and generate a QR code for the transaction. You can then print and display this payment information in your physical store, directing customers to make a payment via the link. With Tingg, you can accept card payments, direct debit payments, bank transfers, USSD, QR and Mobile Money.
2. Accept Online Payment with Single-Page Checkout
Some businesses do not have a physical store presence or an eCommerce website, which is where this payment solution comes in. If you run a business on Whatsapp, Instagram, SMS and other social platforms, you can accept payments with a Single-page checkout solution. This feature allows you to create and customise a single payment page for your store. You can display information about your business and products, include your brand logo and customise the colour of the page. When your single-page checkout is ready, you can share the link with customers via any messaging platform whenever you have a transaction to complete.
3. Receive Payment with a Quick Link
The Tingg Payment link is a great way to receive payment both online and in-store. Once you have set up an account on Tingg, you can simply generate a payment link to share online or print it out and display it at your physical store. When customers click or visit the link they are shown an order summary, a payment invoice and a list of various payment methods to choose from including card payments, direct debit payments, bank transfers, USSD, QR and Mobile Money.
