“With 1App Business, business owners can focus on delivering values, while we deal with how they get paid. Marketing your products is hard enough, receiving payments shouldn’t be.”

Boluwaji is a seasoned businessman. He started by selling goods on his WhatsApp status, then moved to Instagram. One of the major challenges that crippled his business growth is how he accepted payment. Boluwaji gave out his account details and tries his best to confirm each before he delivers the goods. False alerts and late bank notifications made him choose the smarter option of using a payment gateway. Currently, he runs his own e-commerce website where he sells a variety of goods to his customers; he integrated his payment gateway on this website. Problems like downtimes made him integrate more than one payment gateway. Invariably, this reduces accountability and increases the stress involved in balancing his sheets at the end of the month. Overall, these challenges cause an increase in drop-off rates for his businesses. Just like Boluwaji, many business owners face these same issues and 1app Business is here to help.

What is 1app Business?

1app Business is an integrated platform that provides your business with a convenient platform to receive payments from customers. It combines all payment gateways and methods into one so your business can accept payments from all gateways at once without integrating any of the available gateways separately. This, not only saves you from wasting time and resources on creating accounts on multiple payment gateways, but it also gives your customers the flexibility to choose any of the methods that they are most comfortable with. These payment methods available to customers include USSD, bank transfers, card payments and the 1app method in case your client has a 1app account as well.

This means that when you register on 1app Business, you get access to all available payment gateways. You also get a unique payment link that you can share with your clients, a QR code that you can print and share, and your customers can use any method that suits them. And in the case of downtime in the customers’ selected method, they can easily switch to another method instead of not completing the payment.
