Integrate Colombian Payment Methods
The mainstream solutions, like credit cards and online banking, popular in the countries with a developed financial structure, haven’t reached the majority of the population yet. Mobile phone payments, prepaid options, and bank deposits dominate the landscape.
Most of these options are based on the principle that the customer is able to pay the bill in cash at a local retail store or kiosk. Adding these payment options will help you to reach a broader range of customers that otherwise would stay outside due to the undeveloped infrastructure in their region.
