Request for operation in South Africa sign now

We believe it is in the best interests of Paypal to include South Africa in its services offered.

Currently the South African currency is one of (if not) the strongest performing currencies against the United States dollar. As a result many South Africans are entering into cheaper dollar denomindated on-line transactions for goods and services, especially on sites such as eBay.

However, current payment gateways (online and other) that are available to South Africans are mostly cumbersome and expensive and deter many from further transactions. We are of the opinion that with Paypal spreading its business to South Africa it will capture a large share of this yet untapped market, given the convenience and relative low cost of performing transactions with Paypal.

Secondly, upon doing some research, we noted that you do not offer your services to any other country in Africa, we see this as a great opportunity to expand your services to this continent. South Africa has a well established telecommunications and economic infrastructure, as well as world class financial and banking institutions. This enabling enviroment reduces any costs in establising a business in South Africa. South Africa is also considered as the gateway to many other African countries and this would be the perfect platform to spread your businness to other African countries.

Finally, given the high cost of alternative payment gateways, we believe competition will be minimal and that you will not only capture a large portion of the consumer market, but also of the business market, especially where South African based online stores wish to expand their business internationally.

We hope that you consider this invitation given the above reasons as well as the support many South Africans have shown for this petition.
