Yoco crowned winner of Small Business Awards

Yoco, a company that provides easy-to-use, portable card readers that accept card payments, scooped the the 2016 Capetalk and Sage One Small Business Awards.

Katlego Maphai, Yoco CEO spoke to CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies about what the company does and their future endeavors.

Maphai says it takes a day and a half to receive the portable card reader after a five minute online registration and clients pay R1 750 for the wireless lite and R2 450 for the wireless pro which has contact less payments (tap-and-go).

He spoke about some of the interesting services they offer to costumers, including the fact that they don't charge monthly fees.

As the winner, Yoco walks away with a laptop and free access to Sage One Accounting and Sage One Payroll software and free advertising on Cape Talk to the value of R250 000.
