With this latest addition to its payment methods italki is enlarging its lead to other platforms in covering a new and huge potential market. As Kevin Chen, Co-Founder of italki writes in the blog post.
Limited payment options act as a barrier for many users to transact with other people. Many countries do not have access to convenient forms of online payment like Paypal, and very few people have the ability to accept credit cards as a form of payment.
italki already offers cashU and AliPay besides PayPal and plans to add even more payment methods in the near future.
