Internet – In brief


Zimbabwean company Webdev says its online payments gateway, Paynow, has processed transactions worth USD 500,000 over the past year. Webdev's group sales and operations director Vusi Ndebele said the platform is now registering growth in the high double digits for month-on-month transactions processed. This is still only a small fraction of the potential and well below the volume necessary to realise a return on investment but the numbers are as encouraging as the feedback received from merchants and consumers alike, Ndebele said.
