PayPal is teaming up with MallforAfrica (MFA) to make online shopping from key markets outside of Kenya possible.
According to research conducted by Ipsos shows that out of the approximately 26 million internet users in Kenya, 60% shop online or expect to shop online in the future. Still, the safety of online payment remains a significant concern.
According to PayPal, it now offers a more secure way to make payments online thus helping protect people’s hard-earned income from potential danger. When paying with PayPal online, all you need is your email address and password; your financial information, entered when you opened the account, is never shared with the seller.
“We know how important security and trust are for our customers when deciding to shop online. By offering customers payment options that are secure, we can reassure buyers and encourage online shopping” says Efi Dahan, Regional Director for Africa and Israel at PayPal.
“This collaboration is key to unlocking the global marketplace for Kenyan consumers” says Dahan.
MallforAfrica shoppers can purchase a wide variety of products ranging from clothing to jewelry to electronics from the best retailers in the world such as Macy’s, Bebe, Carter’s, Juicy Couture and Zappos.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with PayPal, said Chris Folayan, CEO and founder of MallforAfrica. “We pride ourselves in offering a seamless experience for both our customers and retail partners and couldn’t be happier with adding PayPal as a payment option.”
“The cooperation with MFA is a great win as this further entrenches us in the key markets in Africa such as Kenya. Our aim to provide the best and more secure way of paying and receiving money online and we are proud of this association,” said Dahan.
