Is there a need for an automated online recurring billing system in the rest of Africa?
Frederik Pétursson MadsenCo-founder AfricaPace
I think that there is a need for an billing system in general and an online billing system using a SaaS model is increasingly the way to go forward, also in Africa.

What is necessary is to adjust the billing system to country specific standards, i.e. local currencies, tax systems etc.

Some people are working on this like Uhasibu by Pluspeople Kenya, which recently won an award at Pivot25 i Nairobi. (

when we can simply pay our bills on-line and not get treated like criminals because of the source IP instead of developing fraud prevention and security systems. We need a saner non-paypal systems that can't get switched off whenever some company feels like denying users the right to do their valid business just because they don't like the services offered.
hope #bitcoin takes off soon worldwide.
