How POLi is helping Kiwi online retail businesses
It’s never been more important to have an online presence as a Kiwi retailer. Competition is growing intensely fierce, with many Kiwis no longer as interested in visiting brick and mortar stores as they once were. Now is the era of online shopping, which means you must be prepared to accept online payments.
POLi is a quick, convenient direct online payment option to offer on its own or alongside other payment types, such as credit/debit cards. To pay with POLi, all your customers have to do is log in to their regular online banking account through the secure POLi interface, hit the accept button and money is transferred quickly from their account to yours. You get to control the reference information that you see on your bank statement, helping ensure your bank balance and books perfectly match.

Why are online payment options important?
Kiwis are online, and there’s no going back. Total online spending is now in the billions, having grown significantly in just a few short years ($4.67 billion to $7.67 billion in 2019-21 alone1).
But not every Kiwi owns a credit card, or can be bothered to go find their debit card when they’re at the online checkout. To truly serve the modern Kiwi shopper, you must offer choice - that way people can pick the payment option that best suits their needs.
- 49% of Gen Z’ers have never owned a credit card.2
- About half of Kiwis wish sending online payments was quicker.3
- One third of NZ respondents already use direct online payment options like POLi.3
- POLi is already trusted by major brands like Air New Zealand and NZTA.
