The landscape of ecommerce has evolved dramatically over the last couple of years. Through the onset of Covid-19 and the lockdowns implemented across the world, businesses and customers alike had to grapple with suddenly not being able to sell and shop the way we were used to. Luckily for us all, we live in a digital era. Revolutions like the one we’re living through right now present an exciting opportunity to grasp change and be part of building a different future. 

At Truevo, we think big with local emphasis – we want to make life for entrepreneurs (and in turn, their customers) easier. That’s why we dedicate a lot of time and expertise to crafting resources to assist small business owners to dive into topics from digital marketing to expense tracking

Physical storefronts have finally started opening up to varying degrees worldwide. And yet, the prevalence and importance of those stores’ online counterparts is undeniable. For some, the shift online was the sole reason for their business’s success throughout lockdowns and beyond. 

But of course, to sell online, shopkeepers need to set up systems with which to accept payments online. That means a website with a payment provider (or gateway) for starters. That’s what we do at Truevo: help businesses and entrepreneurs accept payments online securely and easily. And for the UK, this is great news, because we’re launching on the 16th of August!

Our latest bright idea is the Truevo Account, a free three-in-one payments solution that contains intuitive tools to help you run your business. What are the three tools, you may be wondering? 

Tool #1

Payment gateway

Our payment gateway allows you to accept payments through your store. Easily installed without the need for a developer, it works seamlessly with any online store powered by WooCommerce, PrestaShop, Magento, and Odoo.

Tool #2

Debit cards

Get access to your money quickly with your very own business debit card. Settle your accounts and make purchases with your debit card straight from the Truevo Account. As a bonus, the more you spend on your card, the less you pay in online transaction fees – we’ll pay back the fees you’ve saved at the end of each month as a rebate. 

Tool #3

Online portal

Manage your finances with a sleek online portal. See what’s going in and out of your account with a detailed overview. Add or remove team members, change your PIN, and send payouts to your personal bank account with the portal. 

So if you own an ecommerce store that runs on one of the above platforms, we’re already a match made in heaven! As a team run by warm-blooded human beings and not bots and auto-responses, we have nothing but excitement and determination when it comes to rooting for your idea of success. We’re dynamic, knowledgeable, and hungry to see your business thrive. Take it from one of our customers, Wathek Alozdi of Boscombe News, who has this to say about us: 

“I would recommend Truevo to anybody. In fact, I have done so twice already.”

Nice one, Wathek. To be as satisfied as him, stick with Truevo and keep your eyes peeled for our launch on the 16th of August. Here’s a real humdinger for you: the first five signups for the Truevo Account in the UK get free transaction fee processing for three months! That could be you, pal. 

We’ll be covering all things ecommerce and payment-related for the next two months on our blog, so be sure to follow us on our social media channels below to learn how to take your online store to the next level.
