How to: Pay via Instant EFT

EFT’s are an extremely popular form of online payment and therefore we allow our clients to pay via a built in instant EFT feature facilitated through our platform.

Perks of using this method are as outlined below:

  • Paying via instant EFT is quick and easy
  • It’s an extremely secure payment method to use as banking level encryption is enabled when using this method
  • No margin for error in reference numbers or payment amounts as our system auto-populates that for you.

What is instant EFT?

An instant EFT is a bank transfer that is facilitated through a 3rd party payment gateway. This means that when you choose to pay via this payment method, you will see a direct window/frame to your preferred bank being securely opened, and you’ll be able to pay from there.

How does an instant EFT differ from a manual EFT payment?

The main difference is that a manual EFT payment requires you to leave the Mail Blaze environment, log into your banking profile, load our banking details correctly with the correct reference numbers and then send through your proof of payment that will then only allow us to confirm payment at a later stage. This leaves a lot of room for human error to occur or delays in access to the system.

PLEASE NOTE: As our system fully automates the payment process to ensure secure banking and fraud standards are met manual EFT payments are only allowed when strict criteria is met by a client

Why should you consider using instant EFT?

If you’re a business that doesn’t allow your employees to use a business card for payments, instant EFT is a great payment solution for you.

There is less room for human error to happen because all the important information required to make payment is auto-populated.

It’s a very secure method of payment and not complicated to use at all.

You can give your finance manager or dedicated payment staff member access to our platform to make payments themselves directly.
