Improving Sales Revenues for Momtrepreneurs Around SA

by Claire Minnaar


Building a business whilst raising a family can be a daunting task and it’s often difficult for ambitious moms to stay on par with new market developments. WAPPoint has tailored their products to suit moms no matter where they are or what platform they use to make sales. This August, WAPPoint is running a Women’s Month special to help women grow their businesses.

What sort of Business can accept card payments?

Today we will look at the three core business types that apply to momtrepreneurs:

  • Retail Stores
  • Exhibitors at markets, fairs or expos
  • Online stores or home-based businesses

Which payment platform is best for my business?


They offer 4 types of card payment terminals and depending on the format of your business and the frequency of business conducted by card will determine the right type of terminal for you.

  • If you have a retail store with frequent sales, a traditional card machine is the best option for you. You can either get a mobile or fixed line device depending on your needs.
  • If you do fewer sales from various locations then a smartphone paired mobile payment terminal is ideal. WAPPoint offers the PocketPOS™ and the Payment Pebble that conveniently pairs with your smartphone to accept payments wherever you may be.
  • If you are a start-up, online or home based business, the cell or web terminals are perfect for your business as these options are extremely user friendly and have a very minimal monthly subscription fee.
