Benefits of POLi to your business
There are so many benefits that come with using POLi. Reach more customers and reconcile payments quickly and easily.
If you are selling online and taking credit card payments, you pay fees to the credit card companies for every transaction. There is often a monthly account fee, transaction fees of about 2.5% of the total transaction value and a gateway fee of up to $0.50 per transaction. You either have to pass this cost on to your customers or pay it yourself - which can quickly become expensive.
POLi offers much lower fees. There’s no monthly account fee. Transaction fees are just 1% of the transaction value, and the maximum fee per transaction is capped at $3 regardless of the transaction value. On a credit card transaction of $1,000 you’d pay $25 in fees. With POLi you’d pay just $3
Reach more customers
There are more than one million adult New Zealanders who don’t have credit cards. You can allow them to purchase from you online using POLi. Also, many customers prefer not to use credit to make purchases. Customers have the freedom to choose. POLi lets customers choose to pay from their bank accounts and avoid high credit card fees and interest.
If they have multiple bank accounts, they can choose which account to pay from rather than having to transfer money to a credit card account.
Reconcile payments quickly and easily
POLi payments are transferred directly from the customer’s account to your bank account. POLi fills out the payment amount, the account to pay into, and reference details such as order number, customer number, invoice number or whatever data you need to aid reconciliation. So there is no way for customers to enter incorrect information. This ensures payment details shown in your bank account are 100% correct and makes reconciling payments with sales transactions simple.
Flexible & Powerful
POLi integrates easily with a wide range of web and e-commerce platforms, shopping carts and retail solutions including Shopify, WooCommerce, Opencart, Magento, Zencart, Prestashop, Website Builder, Zeald and many many more.
