What is Bykea Purchase Integration with bSecure?
Bykea Purchase integration allows you to sell your product from retail stores where your products are available. If someone orders from the product link for which Bykea Purchase API is enabled, Bykea rider will be notified to purchase the product from any relevant retail store and deliver the product. Bykea rider will use his own cash to purchase the product and get refunded by the customer who ordered the product.
