E-Commerce Master Class # 4 - Payments (PART 2)

  • April 26, 2014 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Hello E-Commerce Warriors, 

After the great response we got for the last event where we discussed Payments, we got a lot of requests for a more in-depth information about the Payment solutions available in the market today for UAE entrepreneurs and businesses, the difference between them, pros and cons, some tips and cheats to help you navigate this confusing world, and the top 10 points to consider.

Well, as always, we can't say no to our awesome community! So we're holding the SECOND part of this very hot topic with a long Q&A session at the end (which was requested by many as well!)

Make sure to sign up early since due to space constraints this will be limited to a certain number of seats. 

Tentative Agenda:

• Payments for dummies

• The mechanics of a payment solution

• Obstacles faced by many

• Available solutions

• Comparisons, Pros & Cons

• The insider's tips

• Q&A (45 minutes)

Guest Speakers:


Omar Soudodi, CEO - PayFort.com
Sebastian Reis, Regional Manager - Checkout.com

If there is anything else you would like to see on the agenda, please let us know in the comments below. This event is aimed to answer all your questions, confusions, and queries about this topic once and for all. 

You should walk out of this event with a big smile and be able to add "UAE Payments Guru" to your LinkedIn the very next day :)

Thanks for your support.

    So, ok what is the conclusion of the payment system that we can use in the UAE? Are there any payment options that we can can use without opening a license for a company in the UAE other than PayPal?
