TechInAfrica – More South Africans are expected to do online payment and shopping in Black Friday 2020. A McKinsey & Company consumer sentiment survey mentioned that 40% of consumers are more interested in doing online shopping set up even after the COVID-19 is over.
The rapid development of online shopping and e-commerce has marked the demand for advanced technology-driven solutions that enable shoppers to purchase and pay conveniently and safely. It includes consumers who do not have credit or debit cards., according to Thomas Pays, CEO and co-founder of digital payments company Ozow.
The offerings of Black Fridays are running for four weeks at many retails. According to Pays, the way to successfully direct Black Friday responsibly depends on four factors:
- Stay on the plan and fixed budget. Numerous deals provided on Black Friday seem to take you out of the path, you are tempted to spend more than you have planned before. To avoid this situation, create a list of what you need, let yourself get used to the deals, set your realistic budget plan, and stay on that plan.
- Purchase at the trusted eCommerce retailers. Reliable sites like Takealot can control many transactions through a safe and automated checkout process. You will be protected by many famous eCommerce from mobile fraud and cybercrime during this hectic time.
- Ignore the non-secure checkouts. According to Pays, the most unsafe point in the shopping process is checkout security. It is the point where cyber hackers can attack your purchasing process. A secure encrypted checkout should always have a small padlock icon next to the site’s URL in your browser
- Explore the checkout payment options. You don’t need a credit card to shop and pay online.
