“At iKhokha, we pride ourselves on empowering entrepreneurs on their growth journeys, and our user experience, customer support, and product features are fast becoming the gold standard in the card payment acceptance space,” he says.

With fast and reliable card payments, iKhokha will offer medical professionals an opportunity to save time, reduce admin and enhance their patients’ payment experience.

By becoming an iKhokha merchant, medical customers will also access digital payment acceptance and business management solutions on the iKhokha app and online iK Dashboard.
