We have businesses processing R5000 per month. We also have businesses processing R1 million per month.Katlego Maphai, Yoco
We are highly impressed with their product and how it improved the speed of service in our own shop. As a chef/restaurateur it’s vital to speed up the payment process. Once customers are ready to pay the bill they no longer provide revenue for the business. Yoco makes our customers happy and enhances our profitability.Marijke Duminy, nominator
Cofounder and CEO Katlego Maphai was elated when he received his award from Sage One on Thursday evening at a prize giving event at the Two Oceans Aquarium in Cape Town’s Victoria and Alfred Waterfront.
