Changing what’s possible in payments
Most payments companies were designed to simply process value… but we believe every transaction should add value, for our merchants and their customers.
Whether that’s through products that save space and time, transaction fees that decrease as you grow, or one-of-a-kind partnerships that reward you for just being in business.
Our pioneering payment products have won innovation awards, and are loved by businesses all over Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and beyond. From everyday merchants seeking a more rewarding payment solution; to banks and channel partners looking to launch their own customised payment products. Online, in-store, in-app and beyond.
