In this article, we had a sit-down with our merchants and this is what they had to say about Pesapal Sabi PDQ Machine.
On the merchant dashboard, Pesapal’s partners can sign in from anywhere and access important data about their business in real-time. Business owners are also able to track their daily sales from the dashboard and see how they can improve sales. Cafesserie in Mombasa has been using the Pesapal Sabi and it has simplified their accounting process.
“ If I want to check transactions for the day, I can choose whatever transaction I want to do, I can print out invoices. At a glance, I can see the balance I have in my account. It's also easier for me to settle my payments from the Pesapal account to the bank account. I really appreciate the platform.” noted Immaculate the accountant at Cafesserie.
As the world continues to fight the Covid-19 virus, handling of physical cash in notes and coins is highly discouraged to contain the virus spread. This accelerated card payments across the globe with customers opting to use their ATM cards as a way of keeping safe. Pesapal Sabi came in handy by providing merchants and consumers with more secure means of transacting. Additionally, Pesapal Sabi is NFC enabled that allows customers to make payments by tapping their cards on the machine.
“In this time of corona, the PDQs are helping us out. We give clients the PDQ for them to just place their cards and their pin then they can make their payments which is very convenient.” Noted Faith Namaemba the HR Manager at Pantry and Provisions.
A steady cash flow is very important for business growth and success. This is because business proprietors can manage their daily operations with ease. Pesapal understands the need for businesses to have funds in their bank accounts so as to plan appropriately. Thus all the payments done through Pesapal Sabi PDQ are settled to the merchant’s account the next day.
“And the best part is the settlement is made the very next day so we don't have to wait for our money.” Noted Karishma, a co-owner at Monty’s.
The Extra charges that customers incur when using foreign currencies have been a major turnoff to many. When customers experience the extra charges, they are far less likely to abandon shopping or not to visit your shop again. The good news is that the Pesapal Sabi PDQ has the ability to charge both local and foreign currencies. Elite Digital, an authorized Apple Premium Reseller with shops in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, and Rwanda has been using the Pesapal Sabi to process payments both in local currency and US Dollars.
