Find out why POLi is the preferred payment option for one of New Zealand's retail success stories.

Who are Shine On?

Shine On is a kiwi retail success story. From the early 2000s as a small business in a basement selling women’s vintage clothing on Trade Me, Shine On has grown into a significant player in women’s online retailing. They now sell major brands like Betty Basics and Elm, as well as their ever-popular own label from their online store

In recent years, Shine On has even opened several bricks-and-mortar stores. But online remains their highest revenue sales channel.

How does POLi help?

In light of this, Cliff Hopkins, Managing Director of Shine On, knows it’s important to offer online customers as many different payment methods as possible. 

This is why POLi is their preferred debit payment option; a valuable payment choice for customers who prefer to pay directly from their bank account.

“Not everyone wants or has a credit card or wishes to sign up for instalment payment options, so to be able to meet all our customers’ needs we are pleased to provide POLi as our debit payment option.”
Cliff Hopkins, Managing Director

Cliff would recommend POLi to other retailers who are considering a debit payment method for online sales.

As a bonus, Cliff has also found POLi very compatible with Shine On’s back office reconciliation processes.

This kiwi company continues to go from strength to strength and POLi will be there to ensure customers have access to a safe and trusted debit payment method.


How Does POLi Work?

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.

1. Checkout of shopping cart

Select the POLi payment option when you checkout

2. Pay with internet banking

Log into your bank account using POLi. The payment is protected by your bank's authentication and security

3. Complete Order

POLi automates the payment process and notifies the seller that the payment has been made

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.
