Using a unique code; adverts are easily converted to sales by initiating an order via SMS or other text-based channels; thus, giving a new meaning to offline business transaction and extending sales beyond the current brick and mortar system. Payment is completed in real-time via variety of options including USSD, Bank Deposit and online payment”.
