About onoConnect

We enable our partners to process card and digital payments, and we are vendor, device and tender-type agnostic. We partner deeply with banks, independent acquirers, payment service providers such as aggregators and ISOs, card schemes, device manufacturers and point of sale software providers in order to make payment capability available to SMME merchants. We do not, ourselves, directly engage with merchants.

Purpose

onoConnect exists to guarantee commerce so you can thrive.
