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

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. Once your customer clicks it and enters in their payment details, the job is done. 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

Review and Refresh Your Business Branding

What is branding? Your business brand is your identity and your message. It’s the package you put out to your customers. It reflects what your business is about, what it stands for and how it does business. It makes your business stand out in the crowd and should be recognisable to your customer base.
