PayTabs, MENA’s award-winning payments powerhouse, has launched the leading social commerce platform Paymes in UAE and Saudi Arabia region.

PayTabs said in a statement that millions of freelancers, artisans, consultants, home-based business owners, personal trainers, and micro vendors will now be able to receive instant payments through PayTabs’ social commerce platform.

According to the statement, “Designers, tailors, yoga instructors, tutors, painters, musicians, landscape artists, and others will have the opportunity to log into the Paymes platform, set up their digital storefront, and turn their passionate business ideas into profit, immediately.”

The entire process, including uploading freelancer documentation, would be facilitated by PayTabs and Paymes within minutes.

Paymes Co-Founder Mr. Hasan Jabbarov said that, “In the eCommerce space, while entrepreneurs and businesses find it a challenge to navigate the high costs of setting up their own websites, solutions such as Paymes offer micro businesses multiple advantages.”

“By enabling freelancers and micro businesses, to set up their own digital shop window, online shoppers can add their favorite products from the webstore to their cart, complete their delivery details and check out securely. This is the level of convenience that the Paymes platform and mobile apps brings to the business,” Mr. Jabbarov added.

Furthermore, Paymes allows users to set up a mini eCommerce webstore, known as ‘Paymes shop’. The web store can be customized and branded saving additional costs for merchants who would otherwise pay to have their websites designed and developed via professional agencies.

Commenting on the launch of Paymes in UAE, Ms. Neelam Keswani, General Manager of PayTabs UAE stated that, “Paymes helps the merchant to build a cart for the customer and share it in the same mode they’re communicating with them – be it WhatsApp, Instagram, or other social media. This helps the merchant close the deal quicker instead of redirecting them to a website.”

“Paymes is empowering these merchants to accept payments in minutes with minimum documents. Being an entrepreneur, I am happy to be part of this impactful technology which will enable the gig economy to grow and value add to the UAE economy,” Ms. Keswani noted.
