  1. I just checked if Vogue payment accepts Ghanaian debit cards because I want to sell my items to people living in Ghana... it seems it falls under international transactions.

  2. This is a nice development.

    Between them and quickteller. Which is ideal for a new business on minimal budget?

  3. This is quite an informative post Mr Jide. Just few weeks past, I was looking for a way to sell my blogger templates online.

    I had wanted to use PayPal but it requires a payment which seems to be higher than that of Vogue.

    Can I sell things online using Vogue pay or which do you recommend?.
