Ecommerce is relatively new in Rwanda, but the market is growing at a fast pace, with several new tech start-ups and international companies arriving. The government is actively supporting online retail and has established measures to protect shoppers by adopting the proprietary information security standard for online payments. Citizens and businesses can use online government portals to pay taxes and fees. Physical infrastructure remains a hinderance for growth, which makes it difficult to deliver goods.
Despite efforts from the Rwandan government to push cashless payments, the people of Rwanda overwhelmingly prefer cash. The reason is likely caused by a distrust in financial institutions. As a result, wire transfer options are popular.
