The platform is free and would work with most e-commerce platforms including Woocommerce, Magento, Squarespace, and Shopify. It also works with social commerce platforms including Whatsapp, Facebook, and Instagram.

Its API is made for online merchants to embed on their online store enabling their customers to checkout their orders in one click. When a shopper clicks the “Checkout with pass” button, two things happen, their order is processed for checkout, and a delivery agent is notified to pick the order up from the merchant and deliver to the shopper.

The first time a buyer uses the Pass checkout platform, they’re prompted to enter their name, email, and payment card details and shipping address and charged a N50 one-off card tokenization fee, after which they won’t have to fill out a checkout form again. Pass has launched its one-click checkout API on its online store.

“Business is always a struggle. There are always obstacles and competitors. There is never an open road, except the wide road that leads to failure. Every great success has always been achieved by fight, every winner has scars. The men who succeed are the efficient few –they are the few who have the ambition and will-power to develop themselves. So choose to be among the few today.” – Chris Kirubi, Centum Investment, Kenya
