How does POLi help?

Demand for technology reached unprecedented levels on PB Tech’s online platform as stores and businesses were forced to close in response to the COVID-19 lockdown in 2020. Darren Smith, Executive Director of PB Tech, knew that he could completely rely on POLi to manage the high demand for customers preferring a debit payment option.

"Sales were massive during lockdown, as were POLi payments. A significant number of sales were to new business customers who readily embraced POLi for the first time. They found it quick, convenient and cost-free to their business."
Darren Smith, Executive Director, PB Technologies Ltd

By engaging POLi as their debit payment option, inefficiencies in back office processing and delays for customers instantly became a thing of the past for PB Tech. Payments could now be automatically populated with their own unique identifiers and orders dispatched without delay. In the past the customer could expect a wait of two to seven days to receive their purchase.

“POLi expands your opportunity to sell. Customers will shop elsewhere if you don’t offer their preferred payment method.”

Currently, approximately 50% of PB Tech’s customers pay via direct payments, with the majority of these being POLi. Darren says that he often tells other business owners that they cannot afford not to use POLi.

PB Tech’s confidence and trust in POLi was justified as their online sales soared in response to lockdown. POLi is a convenient and reliable debit payment system for PB Tech and their customers.
