The more we speak about Visa-Debit cards here in Trinidad & Tobago and I see some of the responses, is the more I realize we have so much work to do on our mindset and getting people to understand how crucial, something so simple really is. Plain talk bad manners, when it comes to e-commerce in T&T, we are like 10 years behind (but catching up). One of the key ingredients that will completely change the landscape in T&T will be the adoption of Visa-Debit cards by the banks. Seem a bit skeptical? Will let me break down how Visa-Debit cards will boost your business.
First off…I need to throw out a disclaimer, please do not comment or respond anywhere near this post about how you already have a prepaid credit card or a visa debit card (they are not the same product) with another institution, this post isn’t about you. Nor am I bringing this topic up with the sole purpose of consumerism. This blog is done from the standpoint of a business owner and what it means for business within the country. So if you have the urge to comment, “I already have JMMB”, congratulations, now run along.
