According to a survey by Wopedigital, the majority of eCommerce sites offered at least one online payment method, 52.1% to be exact.
Of the sites that offered online payments, 84.2% offered a single option whilst 13.2% offered 2 options. Only 2 sites (2.6%), shopayamorrison.com, and yevuclothing.com offered 3 or more online payment options.
Which online payment platforms are the most popular in Ghana?
The answer was quite clear. Some eCommerce sites processed their payments via SlydePay. PayPal, Flutterwave, expressPay, and Hubtel rounded out the top 5.
We came across 17 payment methods in total which you’ll find below listed in the order of their popularity:
- The Teller
- Jumia Pay
- Amazon Pay
You might notice from the list that some payment platforms listed aren’t available to Ghanaians. PayPal, Shopify, Amazon Pay, and Stripe are all payment methods you can’t sign up for from Ghana.
The sites using them might have someone based outside the country to help them with that. Or the owners opened the account when they traveled abroad.
