Some background perhaps.. Nigeria, as a nation, has a huge amount of stigma around it after various different online scams and a general feel of corruption about it. In fact I am sorry to say that the people of Nigeria have it incredibly hard on the internet and to make money is especially difficult because the big reputable payment processors like PayPal are not available to them. This is rather frustrating because over the last few weeks I have met and worked with (even outsourced work to) various Nigerian people and I have not got a bad thing to say about any of them. It’s sad, in my opinion, that the lack of PayPal hinders international business the way it does.
Anyway, soap box aside, I have to say that, despite this hinderance, I have taken on and completed 5 or 6 different projects and am happy to tell you about three of them right now.
Ever since I wrote the WooCommerce Interswitch WebPay plugin a couple of months ago I have had a stream of communications with various Nigerian business people who are interested in having a variety of different gateways integrated for them. I am pleased to announce that I have now completed work on the following three plugins
- WooCommerce VoguePay plugin
- WooCommerce CashEnvoy plugin
- WooCommerce Eyowo plugin
That’s the good news. The bad news is that they were written on commission and the source is not mine to distribute unlike with the Interswitch WebPay module. However, in the name of vanity, I am very pleased with my work on all of these plugins and am hoping that my name being attached to them will give the work a certain level of credibility. I will release the URLs where more information can be gathered about these modules when I receive work back from my clients.
If anyone has an interest in these or any other payment gateway integrations for WordPress or any platform then please do get in touch with me and I will gladly work with/for you to find the integration that is right for you.
