We heard a confident, “Yebo yes.”

Right, we’re going to live by Simon Sinek’s words and start with the why.

Why you should become an iKhokha merchant

We don’t want to beat around the bush. We exist to support any business owner who is starting, running, or aiming to grow their business. Especially considering that a business that lays its foundation on South African soil is empowering our country’s livelihoods and economic status. And as a born and bred South African business, we would know.

This means that when you become an iKhokha Merchant, you do more than simply purchase a card machine. You fuel a cycle of upliftment and empowerment.

We want to see you thrive

We’ll name a few ways we do that. First up, there are no rental fees. That means you buy the card machine once-off and it’s yours to keep, for life.

Not only that, but you get to tap into low transaction rates coupled with next-level support!

Now that’s a win for any person who feels scared of embarking on their business venture alone. You can be rest assured knowing that we will be there walking alongside you in your business journey.

Interested? Great, we love to hear that. Now, let’s talk about the card machines that you can buy to grow your small business.

The iK Flyer

This all-in-one smart card machine includes a business management suite that is designed to make your business's day-to-day easier.

The device supports staff switching (restaurant owners check in!), allowing each employee to easily login using a unique profile. It also provides the business owner or administrator with an overview of staff performance, inventory, and sales.

When the glorious checkout moment comes, you get to ask your customer a pretty cool question, “Would you like me to print or email your receipt?”

Awesome, right? The iK Flyer has a built-in ink-free thermal printer that prints physical receipts at a high speed of 70mm per second. If your customer wishes to take the eco-friendly route, you can skip the printing and email a digital copy to them.
