Last year we shared an article on the top honeymoon destinations for 2015. Wedding and honeymoon planning goes hand in hand, and while some couples opt to both have a hand in the planning, the groom sometimes take the lead with the honeymoon planning.

Whether you are planning a local or destination honeymoon or wedding, companies like PayPal make it easier for you to pay for accommodation, products, services and other travel arrangements in a safer way on-line. The last thing you want is added stress before your wedding or honeymoon if a payment goes missing or has been compromised.

More and more people are also choosing South Africa for their honeymoons and destination weddings. Not only do we have the sea, the wildlife, but we as South Africans are known for our hospitality. Being competitive not only means saving on costs, it means best service, easy access and seamless processes. For local destinations, in order to accommodate international clients accepting payments online safely is key. It is easy to expand your business and potentially increase your on-line sales by signing up for a business account with PayPal. Add it to your on-line store or just keep it on-hand for easy payments.

“On-line commerce creates a world of opportunities for buyers and sellers, but entering card details on an overseas website or accepting a payment from someone overseas can be concerning,” said Efi Dahan, regional director Africa and Israel at PayPal. “What PayPal represents is trust, which is why we process tens of millions of US dollars every quarter.”

PayPal has over 15 years of experience in fighting fraud. They are recognised worldwide as a means of secure payment, boosting customers’ confidence in the merchant’s site offering PayPal as a payment option, helping convert them into buyers.

Cape Town-based Singita Safari Lodges and Luxury Accommodation started using PayPal to accept international payments, which now comprises 95% of its bookings, in August 2013. After one year, PayPal accounted for 26% of foreign payments and by the end of 2014, 43%.“PayPal is a known and trusted brand, so we encourage our guests to use it,” said Geoff Johnstone, Singita’s CFO. “It just works for us. PayPal is reliable and there is no breakdown in the channel,” adds Johnstone.
