That’s exactly where Tap founders found themselves, once upon a time in the year 2014. Or rather, that’s where they found most Middle Eastern business owners and consumers. They found that, for the world’s leading population of young, wealthy, online savvy, technologically advanced users to still have problems buying and selling things online in their part of the world… Something wasn’t clicking. We live in a world where we didn’t have to deal with drawn out set-up procedures, complicated systems, or inflexible payment methods anymore… but somehow we still were.
