Expect sheer convenience and added fuss-free secured features for e-commerce companies with genuine flexibility and benefits offered for your businesses.
Embarking on a single user-friendly interface that allows merchants to enjoy transactions tracking 24/7 will allow one to reap the benefits of timely & up-to-date status of all the transactions & a better view of the businesses' cash flow.
Gaining More Than Ever!
With a 1 stop payment & banking service, the latest collaboration seeks to offer a multiple card payment acceptance Anytime & Anywhere tailored to each individual business needs.
How is it so?
Imagine accepting payment straight from a smartphone or a tablet with the latest mobile Point-of-Sale technology.
As an avid online shopper, the constant concern on my mind had always been the security aspect of providing my credit card details via online.
With the mobile Point-of-Sale system, customers can have a peace of mind as transactions can be completed right before their eyes via any cashless mode of payment upon delivery of the goods at the door.
Instant convenience with the "Swipe Card Upon Delivery" feature!
For a better understanding, the following is an example illustrated for you:
A white connector is attached to a portable device (IPad, Smartphone or Tablet), with a pre-downloaded App (available on App Store & Google Play) in the device, the merchant's account can be accessed after logging into the APP.
The amount and quantity can be keyed manually for each transaction before the very eyes of the customers to ensure total transparency.
Next the credit card are inserted into (for cards that has the micro-chip security facility) or swipe onto the white connector device for the payment authorization.
Upon transacting, the customer's email or contact number are inputed & an e-receipt of the transaction will be sent to the customer.
For the business owners, as consolidated reports of all the deliveries and payments will be provided hence time saved as compared to collating the traditional manual paper receipts.
For business owners, a zero initial deposit is required upon opening of the merchant account therefore one will get to earn competitive higher interest yield in their merchant banking account when they kept their minimum daily balance of more than SGD$3000.
Advocates the notion of "Time is Money".
What's more enticing is that business owners will not fret about cash flow inconveniences and issues as cash from the sales are available into the account the next day for immediate utilization!
Borrowing funds are made easy with the interest-free* credit line provided where businesses can access to ready-funds via the overdraft facility WITHOUT the need to pledge any asset.
*A 2 tier interest rate scheme: 0% p.a interest is applicable at a max cap in the 1st 65% of the overdraft limit, where 12.88% p.a is applied for the remaining facility limit. Standard processing & monthly fees still applies.
