Pitch

Paydel bridges the trust gap in e-commerce by seamlessly integrating payment and last mile delivery. Keeping both parties safe from fraud, while allowing businesses to scale their operations and convert 3 times faster.

PROBLEM AND SOLUTION

The lack of trust is the most fundamental problem in e-commerce. To avoid being conned, not receiving their delivery or receiving the wrong item, 99% of consumers prefer to pay on delivery. However, this shifts the risk to businesses. As a result, 90% of them prefer advertising for in-store shopping, where customers pay at the point of sale, escaping the risks of online purchases. While other countries see 19% of their retail volume transacted via e-commerce, Kenya stands at a mere 3%.

We solve this by seamlessly integrating escrow payments and last mile delivery. Ensuring we can confirm goods receipt. Providing the security of online transactions for both business and consumer. Ensuring the buyer's peace of mind, as the payment is only released to the seller after the goods are received. For businesses, we secure consumer commitment while also protecting them from fraud.

REVENUE/BUSINESS MODEL

We generate revenue through transaction fees and last-mile delivery fees. Transaction Fees: We charge a percentage of the product price as a transaction fee.
Last-Mile Delivery Fees: We charge consumers for last-mile delivery.

Diversify Payment Methods: We aim to accept multiple forms of payment to cater to a broader range of customer preferences and enhance convenience.
