What will your customers experience?
POLi lets your customers pay online in real time using their Internet Banking. They don’t need a credit-card, and they don’t need to register. When they pay you with POLi, the payment is transferred directly into your bank account from theirs. For a better look at the payment process your customers will go through, find out more here.
1. Checkout of shopping cart
After adding their products to the shopping cart, customers select the POLi payment option instead of entering credit card details.
2. Pay with internet banking
They log into their online banking using POLi’s secure portal. Here they can select which account to use (i.e. checking or savings).
3. Complete Order
Funds are withdrawn from their account and POLi automatically notifies you that you’ve been paid
4. No shopping cart?
Customers can pay you directly with our ‘Pay Now with POLi’ buttons, links and forms - including straight out of their invoices.

What our customers think of POLi
The Whiskey Shop
We’ve been using POLi Pay for a while now and are very happy to have added it as an option. It’s saved us money and given our customers another payment option which they’ve really appreciated.
We’ve offered POLi as an option on our checkout since 2010. Our online customers have really taken to it and we appreciate the extra business we generate from this low cost channel
POLi fully automated the release process of processing orders. We automatically release as paid before we see the money in our account and ship the same day. POLi is consistent and reliable, therefore we place our utmost confidence in it.
The beauty of POLi is that it is a smooth and seamless process. I just pay the bill at the end of the month and it basically takes care of itself.
The introduction of POLi as a payment method on www.thewarehouse.co.nz and www.redalert.co.nz has provided our customers the convenience of paying directly from their bank account without using a credit card. We’re very pleased with the contribution that POLi is making to the success of our online channel
That’s the beauty of having POLi. It automatically pre-populates both the correct amount and the other payment details into the internet banking screen without customers having to type in anything.
