Online Credit Card Processing For 2010 To a Merchant Facility Via a Payment Gateway


Recent Company News

Gary Bailey with experience of the previous two World Cups is presenting some valuable information for businesses who want to benefit from the 2010 FIFA World Cup and may need a payment gateway and merchant facility for online credit card processing for 2010.

Schools will be closed for almost over four weeks during the World Cup - it was apparently legislated last week. Think about what you're going do with your kids.  so if you have a business that can entertain kids and get paid by their parents with a credit card then you may want to get an ABSA merchant facility, Standard Bank merchant facility or Nedbank merchant facility.

Air tickets to Cape Town (for example) will cost about R8,000 per seat as some flights have to leave same night after the games due to accommodation problems in PLZ/CPT/DBN/BLOEM.   Flights will operate 24 hours.   Expect NOISE. Expect TRAFFIC around airports all hours.  So for businesses wanting to capitalise on the selling of airtickets, a payment gateway for online credit card processing for 2010 air tickets with an airline merchant facility or tourism and travel merchant facility could come in useful.


Traffic will increase by about 30% at the times of the games as fans go to the grounds or Fan Parks (games start at 13.30, 16.00 and 20.30 hrs).   Gary says that the best time to fly is whilst matches are on!  Road areas around stadiums will be closed off.  It is expected that 550,000 people will be travelling to/from matches and 100,000 per match expect considerable delays on match days.  There will not be parking available at airports - so arrange drop offs. . . . 4,800 buses will be operational and there will be restrictions on truckers/hauliers, etc. so you need to plan with clients and especially regarding containers needing haulage.  So if you can think of an angle here where you may be able to sell your service and get paid by credit cards, then PayGate payment gateway can help you to get an ABSA merchant facility, Standard Bank merchant facility or Nedbank merchant facility for , online credit card processing for 2010.


"Fan Parks" will be a huge attraction and traffic to/from those areas will be extremely congested.   At one Fan Park in Germany 500,000 people pitched up, consuming during the events three million sausages, one million litres of beer, etc.  The 2010 FIFA World Cup is an unbelievable opportunity to sell stuff.  the millions of people will be ready to buy food, memorabilia, air tickets, and with the congestion, the best way is online.  Much easier than getting stuck in the traffic trying to buy a ticket or other service, when you can do it in the internet or over the phone.  Businesses who want to do online credit card processing for 2010 through an internet payment gateway and have a merchant facility, whether it's an airline merchant facility, tourism and travel merchant facility, B&B merchant facility, Hotel merchant facility, Travel agency merchant facility or any kind of merchant facility, they will be best placed to make the most money.  Read on for more info relating to online payment solutions . .
