Commenting on Vogogo, Co-Founder Geoff Gordon said, “We know how challenging it can be for a small business or a new venture to get paid. That’s why we developed Vogogo as a simple web application that can be utilized from any desktop, tablet, or smartphone with access to the Internet. We wanted to solve a business’s main pain points when it comes to payments. With that in mind, we designed Vogogo to be more than just an online Credit Card machine. We offer multiple payment options and we included the Biz and Rent tools to help specific market segments easily utilize the service. We’ve had a number of organizations in private beta over the past seven months and now we’re looking forward to helping the wider Canadian market solve their payment headaches.”
