OUR PURPOSE: We exist to enable people to thrive.

A purpose-driven company asks, “What's the difference we want to make in the world?” What’s the reason we come to work, above and beyond making money?

Our answer is that we want to enable people to thrive. It’s the reason we started Yoco, it’s what we still ultimately want to achieve through Yoco, and it’s as noble an intention now as it’s ever been. We want to enable our customers to thrive. We want, in some small way, to help them have better businesses, grow their revenue, do what they love doing and live better lives.

OUR VISION: Open Commerce

  • We believe in enabling people to thrive, through open commerce.
  • We believe in a world where commerce is more accessible, more possible, more inclusive, more for everyone. Where anyone can pursue, participate in and connect with a business.
  • We believe in a world where independent endeavour thrives, and there is no end to opportunity.
  • We believe in a world where technology enables people to focus on what matters, where they can tap into their gifts, creativity and passion, and create unique products and experiences that delight.
  • We believe in increasing wealth locally, and the ripple effect that it can have on so many communities.
