I have created a simple checklist for PayPal to act on as to why they should de-blacklist Ghana and to help the millions of shoppers having a PayPal account to have access to my online African craft shop.
✓ There is a growing number of businesses in Ghana going online and that means more profit for us.
✓ It makes excellent business sense, so why shouldn't we?
✓ VISA and MASTERCARD are in Ghana, what are we waiting for?
✓ There really are legitimate online entrepreneurs in Ghana! omg!
✓ We will be supporting SME's like RootsbyNaa who can finally have shoppers in South Africa buy her products!
✓ It will really make us look good!
✓ Our enemies will be ashamed after all the name calling
✓ Who blacklisted Ghana at all? Find and Fire that person by COB 8/11/13 12pm!
✓ Investigate how VISA is managing to secure transactions safely and
copy their style improve on that.
✓ It will be very good PR!
✓ Has the culprit been found yet?
