Dalpay payment gateway - to support Cameroon

Good morning!

Please I'm coming to you for the issue in subject, to plead.

Our website (eduriche.com) is ready since months but, we cannot use it, just because we are in Africa. I mean the payment gateways currently available on WA global system are all good, but are also all global without Africa and especially without Cameroon, my fantastic country. It is very hard to swallow the reason why thier idea of globalization can exclude a whole continent, with unimaginable potentials and so highly brain gifted like Africa. Why are all these frustration for? They all refuse to deal with us for this following simple and basic reason: Eric, you are in Africa. I have a verified merchant account at Paypal.com with the name of our legaly registered organization but, PayPal says we can use its system only to buy, and not to sell because we are in Africa. Who can keep spending money and get rich without income? Beeing in Africa is not a reason to banished!

So, I’ve been working hard to find a gateway among to listed ones on WA but, in vain. And I then engaged myself in deep researches among tens of millions of websites. And many (almost all) of them are not ready to deal with Africa. I’ve even been asked in advice by many of them to base my Organization in USA, Canada, EU, or to let them rebuild my website, just to get my business accepted for cards processing. But personnaly, I don't see why should I be forced to do so. If WA after doing it's best cannot allow us to accept card on our site by giving us a true global payment gateway, we'll finaly set registration free of charge for all our members. The doors of money may be closed, but the doors of Love is always opened. And that is our site's topic.

But I have something I thing serious for all Africa that I wanted to submit to your appreciation, the way I did to WA's support and tech staff. I think, knowing that I may be wrong, it is a good payment gateway: http://www.dalpay.com .

With fast approval, they accept business from almost every country in the world, including Africa (where they have Ghana and Nigeria blocked for some time) without set up fees, no mothly fees but with comprehensive rates. I humbly think that if WA installs dalpay.com as one of payment gateway our online membership software we all share can be really globally used, because Africa-based and Asia-based Organizations will now have a true opportunity to use it fully to improve and to help. We also have many great and positive things to share with the world! We then need a geteway!

You (WA) once introduce Cameroon in your list of countries just to give to our organization the chance to have a high quality website: this was just after I wrote a short request. I then understood that you were self-committed to help. Please keep helping us as far as you can, until satisfaction, if possible. Please set Dalpay for us, forsaken people.

Best regards

From Yaounde in Cameroon,

Eric Langoul

        There was a time in Nigeria to make online business such as buying & selling online are very difficult in Nigeria all transactions are made through banks. Then banks do have inter-connectivity within them self to carried out various payment methods.

        Until we have what we call Automated Teller Machine (ATM) using your bank debit cards to withdraw funds from the machine.
        Then, each bank has theirs and which you cannot use your bank debit card to operate in other different banks ATM machines because they has not be what we call InterSwitch.com.ng

        This company handles payment processor with banks and merchant customers in Nigeria. With their help many programmer started developing payment gateways for online transaction and you can payment with Credit Card and Debit card both local and international cards are now accepted in Nigeria.

        Coming to Cameroon have not seen or heard about all these integration in their banks. In Cameroon you cannot use ECOBANK Debit card to withdraw funds from UBA ATM machine or Cameroon Commercial Bank ATM machine.

        With these absent it will be hard or not possible to accept debit card from different banks for online payment gateway design for Cameroonian.

        In summary Cameroon cannot have their own payment processor gateway if there is no online connectivity between all banks in Cameroon or somehow.

        I have developer that can develop payment gateway but there is no payment processor in Cameroon. Well, that what Cameroon financial institution have to do.
        I have my WEB Hosting Company (SlayHost.com) registered in Nigeria and wish to extend my sales to Cameroon as I am currently reside in Cameroon temporary.

        I think what I just say may be the problem while Cameroon do not have Payment gateway and Payment processor company or correct me if I am wrong.

        So, is high time we Africans do not depend on Western World for everything.
