PayTabs: Not Just Any Payment Gateway

“People are the best show in the world. And you don’t even pay for the ticket.” – Charles Bukowski

There are two elements in that quote which resonates with the core business philosophy of PayTabs, i.e. People and Payments. PayTabs began as an idea with the sole mission to create a simple and secure platform for people and organizations to transact around the world.

At the heart of it, the mission seems simple enough, after all people are buying and selling in the new digital economy all the time. But the faultlines begin to appear once you deep dive into solving the problems of the payments processing industry, fuelled by the rapid e-commerce growth globally.

The problems are pretty striking when you look at it from a bird’s eye view:

  • Gap in the market in the context of multiple currencies being accepted as payments by an ecommerce platform.
  • End to end authorization, technology, infrastructure and services in the payments space being offered by a single solution provider: There aren’t that many players.
  • Security and Fraud Prevention is a major concern for the industry.
  • Not many alternative payments options available with majority of competitors in the industry.
  • Last but not the least, hidden charges by many competitors brings ambiguity to the minds of the merchants.
