Customer Spotlight: Julie & Tash

This month Julie, from mother and daughter duo Julie & Tash, is in our customer spotlight. At Julie and Tash, we help highly sensitive people manage their energetic boundaries so they don’t burn out trying to help everyone else at the expense of their own wellbeing. We sell coaching, books, card decks and meditation programs on our website, at festivals and at conferences. I used to have an EFTPOS machine and found the monthly fees very painful. Back in 2019, I was researching a better way to take payments at the upcoming Mind, Body, Spirit Festival and PayNow stood out

Customer Spotlight: Wendy from Orange Grove

This month, Wendy from Orange Grove luxury candles and bath products based in New Zealand is in our Customer Spotlight.  Orange Grove was born in a real orange grove in Kerikeri, Northland, NZ about six years ago and we’re now located in another happy orange grove in Christchurch. Two years ago – when Covid and chronic arthritic pain made running my photography business impossible – I did a pivot and turned my previous hobby of soap and candle making into a small business.  Soon after, I opened an online shop. I produce luxury candles, natural skin and bath products, all

Customer spotlight: Peter from Wire Industrial & Marine

Welcome to the first of our customer spotlights. This month we’d like to introduce you to Peter from Wire Industrial and Marine based in New South Wales, Australia. I first started to use PayNow when PayPal shut down its credit card payment solution for use by tradies. When looking for a solution, I came across PayNow.  PayNow has been a breath of fresh air.

Create instant payment links

We’ve been hard at work developing a new feature for our PayNowlink app. If you haven’t come across PayNowlink, this is PayNow’s sister app that allows you to send anyone, anywhere, an online link to process a payment.

In a world where the pandemic has taken so many sales and transactions online, this is the ideal way to safely process payments without worrying about in-person meet-ups. Previously this link expired after 24 hours but now this this limit is no longer the case. The link can now be
