Angola is not a highly connected country; access to the internet is one of the lowest in the world due to poor infrastructure. Most internet users connect via mobile phones. Domestic B2C is not widespread in Angola, but is slowly growing with the creation of several domestic ecommerce websites. Payment is usually made through debit cards and local courier services deliver orders, as the mail delivery system is unreliable. Cross-border ecommerce is restricted to middle and upper income citizens, given that access to international credit cards is restricted.
The leading business challenge in Angola since mid-2015 has been the lack of foreign exchange in the market due to the decline in petroleum revenues and the resulting drop in international reserves entering the Angolan economy. The U.S. Embassy encourages U.S. exporters to structure exports to Angola on cash-in-advance terms.
Available currencies will depend on the payment method provider, as well as any regulatory restrictions.
Digital River can support the sales of these types of products for this specific market.
A limitation in the market is the lack of use of credit cards and other internationally accepted payment options. Even though over half of adults in Angola have bank accounts, access to international credit cards is extremely restricted. When it comes to domestic purchases, debit cards are growing in popularity, but the most popular payment is cash.
The list below represents the current categories of payment options Digital River supports for this market.
