An instant payment alert has numerous benefits for merchants and customers…
As a business owner, have you ever received payments through bank transfer from your customers but were forced to delay them from leaving as you had not received any payment notification?
Or do your sales attendants have to always call you to confirm a payment alert from a customer before completing the transaction?
Oftentimes, the alert for a successful transfer arrives after several minutes, sometimes hours, and other times, there is no notification at all and the business owner is forced to confirm the payment from their account balance. And sometimes, sales attendants are forced to call their boss to confirm a payment alert from customers before completing the transaction.
For businesses and customers, this is not a pleasant experience to have. The situation which is a common occurrence in Nigeria’s business climate causes unnecessary delays and frustrations for all parties involved.
The world of payments is fast evolving with technology, and business owners and consumers are constantly seeking new payment methods that are easy, reliable and time-saving.
These hiccups in payment collections and the desire to deliver a better customer experience necessitate the need for merchants to have access to real-time payment technology that simplifies transaction monitoring.
Are you a merchant seeking a solution to this problem?
A slow payment confirmation process is a major problem with bank transfers for many business owners and paying customers. Customers want to be able to pay for goods and services and leave immediately. But in many instances, they are forced to stay behind after making successful transfers while sales attendants wait to confirm payment alerts that sometimes take a long time to arrive.
Now, with the push SMS, email, and Signal notification channels linked to Bani’s virtual accounts solution, you no longer have to worry about long waiting times before confirming payments made to any of your accounts by your customers.
