E-Commerce is small but growing in Morocco.  Morocco has Africa’s highest internet penetration rate.  One major hurdle, however, is a lack of online payment systems.  There is a high instance of credit card fraud in Morocco and several U.S. companies have blocked access to Moroccan Internet Service Providers (ISP). Most transactions made online in Morocco still have the payment executed offline.  Restrictions on outbound hard currency cash flows also limit international purchases.  Internet payment systems such as PayPal are available.
