POLi

A whole new way to pay online


POLi Payments offers users a whole new approach to safe, secure, and easy online payments. Established in 2004, POLi has delivered an innovative and intelligent software platform for Australians and New Zealanders to transact safely and securely online. With POLi, consumers use their debit funds to pay for online purchases rather than relying on a credit card. POLi payments are instantly debited from their bank account.

Merchants will instantly receive a receipt of the transaction, which means you can feel confident delivering goods and or services immediately. POLi is perfect for those who don’t have a credit card or prefer not to use it online. There’s no registration hurdle and customers can use it for free. POLi offers you a quick and simple way to increase your online sales and attract more confident buyers. POLi reduces your chargeback risks, because unlike a credit card, once you receive a payment it can’t be reversed by the bank.

45% of Australian adults don’t own a credit card, so POLi increases your sales by giving you the capability to accept payments online from these potential customers. Alternative Payments provides the POLi payments method as part of their service offering to merchants worldwide, including customer support, integration and reporting. POLi was developed to fill the market need for a customer-friendly, real time, debit payment method for Australia and New Zealand.

Until now, there’s been limited real time debit payment method for online sales in the region, and of the two major debit payment methods currently available to consumers, EFTPOS cards cannot be used online and BPAY doesn’t offer real time receipts and zero reconciliation errors.
