Regulation of Online Payments in Botswana

Botswana’s government has not imposed guidelines for online payments in the country. Instead, banks adhere to the guidelines provided by the credit card companies themselves.

For example:

Visa requirements call for merchants to ensure that, at a minimum, the following customer details are collected:

  • The card account number
  • The name as it appears on the card
  • The card expiration date as it appears on the card
  • The cardholder’s statement address
  • Also check whether the card has a card start date and record this detail.
  • If possible, take note of a contact phone number and the name of the financial institution that issued the card.

MasterCard requires that merchants comply with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard.

American Express recommends merchants only ship to the cardmember’s billing address.

Who can open an account with DPO?

Any travel related merchant / provider and E-commerce merchants (hotel, airline, travel agent, tour operator, tour guides etc.) can open an account immediately and enjoy DPO’s online and mobile payment services.
