WiPay Business

Things you should know before we begin!

Our sign-up process will register you for a WiPay Business UnVerified account. This means that there are some features that you will not be able to access.

To get access to all of our WiPay services, you will need to upgrade to a WiPay Business Verified account. Don’t worry, the upgrade process is completely free! You will, however, need to submit documents for us to upgrade your account. The documents will differ depending on the legal structure of your Business.

WiPay currently supports three Business structures; Sole Trader, Limited Company and Non-Governmental Organization (NGO).
