Payza members can now send secure direct messages to Payza’s Customer Support Team within their account

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM – 11/17/2016 (PRESS RELEASE JET) — Payza, a global payment platform, has announced today the launch of a new direct messaging customer support feature with In-Account Support. The service will offer members improved customer assistance by being accessible directly within their accounts wherever they require additional guidance. The new support system will also provide an enhanced mobile support experience to complement the latest version of the Payza mobile app (including iOS), which will be rolling out before year end.

The pilot project for the direct messaging feature has been running since the start of October and is offered to Payza Business Account holders as well as all members in the US, UK, Canada, India and Bangladesh. Now members can submit a support inquiry in seconds without interrupting their session.

The feature comes as the first initiative in a series of enhancements to the Payza user experience. The new Payza Reference Center, home to Payza’s account setup guides, user manuals, and API and Advanced Integration guides, is also currently in development. These services, along with Payza video tutorials published to the company’s YouTube Channel represent a major shift in how Payza envisions providing self-serve and Payza-assisted support to its members.

This new highly secure method of communication will facilitate a prompt two-way conversation between Payza and its members. The feature will also be used to inform members of updates to their account by providing announcements and reminders. Payza will send periodic chat messages and pop-up “Notes” with information about new features, promotions, account updates, and other helpful tips. On rare occasions, Payza will use full-screen pop-up messages for important updates and announcements.

“We are excited to unveil these latest support tools to our Payza members. We believe our members deserve a practical way to engage with our support team. This new system is the ideal solution,” explains Firoz Patel, Payza’s global executive vice president. “The direct messaging feature will provide our members with the convenience they are looking for.”

If a member is unable to access their account for any reason, they can still contact Payza from the Customer Support Page.

6 Tips for Submitting the Best Payza Customer Support Ticket

Learn how to accurately fill out a customer support request to receive the best support.

To answer customer support inquiries quickly and accurately, we ask you to provide us with as much detail as possible in all the right places. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when submitting a Support Ticket to Customer Support.


Tip #1: Select the correct department

Why? We can match your question or problem with the right Customer Support advisor.

On the first page of the Payza Support Ticket form, you’ll notice a list of departments such as My Account SupportMy Money Support, Business SupportAccount Security, and Sales / Business Development. These departments may offer additional options to help get your ticket to the appropriate Customer Support advisor. Be sure you choose the right Customer Support department when submitting your ticket to ensure that the right team receives your ticket immediately and to avoid unnecessary response delays.


Tip #2: Enter personal details that match the information in your account

Why? We can locate your account and transaction history faster.

When submitting a Support Ticket, you’ll be asked to provide your first and last name, your email address, and your date of birth. The information you submit here should match the information listed in the Payza account you need help with. You should not submit support tickets on behalf of other Payza members.


Tip #3: Describe your problem in detail

Why? We can make sure the right Customer Support advisor, in the right department, is notified in the shortest amount of time.

Your subject line should describe your issue: it should be descriptive and provide as many details as possible about the help you need. For example, if you need help resetting your password, choose a subject such as, Help reset my password. If you have a problem with a withdrawal, use a subject line such as, Problem with withdrawal. If you think your account may have been hacked, a good subject line would be: I think my account has been hacked. Never write only “Help me!!!” in the subject line.


Tip #4: Include all the necessary information

Why? When we receive detailed information the first time, we avoid wasting time emailing you back and forth to ask for more or for the correct information.

If your Support Ticket is about a transaction, be sure to include the Payza Transaction Reference Number in the message so that we can quickly locate the transaction you need help with. If it is a problem with your verification documents, let us know which specific document you are having problems with. By providing as much information as possible from the start, we’ll be able to spend more time right at the start helping you and less time asking you for more information.


Tip #5: Do not include sensitive information

Why? We don’t need this information to help you with your problem.

While we do ask you to provide as much detail as possible about your issue, there is such a thing as too much information. Do NOT include details like your Bank Account and Credit Card numbers or other sensitive information in your ticket.


Tip #6: Do not submit multiple tickets for the same issue

Why? Each time you submit a ticket for the same problem, it puts you at the back of the line.

Once you have submitted a Support Ticket, please wait for the response from our team and avoid sending multiple tickets or multiple replies for the same ticket. Doing this could further delay the response from our Customer Support Team. For the quickest response, send only one ticket per issue.


A final tip to remember: Be sure to check our FAQ section first for the solution to your problem before submitting a ticket.

Payza’s Support Options are Changing

Payza Customer Support

Payza is committed to offering the best customer support in our industry, and we do so by making sure our members can always reach us easily, and by making sure that our support team is knowledgeable, friendly, and dedicated to making sure our members get the answers they’re looking for.

Last year, Payza introduced two new support options to make it easier for our members to get in touch with an advisor when they needed a bit of extra help. The first option we introduced was Live Chat, a way to communicate in real-time with a support advisor. One of the biggest advantages of Live Chat support over traditional phone support is that members can receive support in more languages, where phone support was only available in English and French.

Payza also introduced the Payza Community interactive online support forum in September, 2013. Payza Community is a great place to get answers to general questions about Payza, it’s also the best place to share your Payza tips and tricks with other members.

Thanks to the success of our two newest support channels and the dramatic decline of members seeking phone support, we have decided to remove the phone support option in order to dedicate more resources towards the support channels our members are using most.

The always popular email support option is also still available. You can submit a support ticket by filling out the form on Payza’s support page and our team will reply to you promptly by email, usually in less than 24 hours!

Additionally, if you have a business account and have questions related to integration issues, you can visit Payza’s Developer Center for additional support and resources.

We Love to Hear From You-Tell Us What You Think!

Here at Payza, we love to hear from you! That’s why we added Live Chat as a convenient contact option, and expanded our support hours to be available to you 24  hours a day, 5 days a week. That’s why we set up Payza Community, where our Support Advisors and other expert Payza users are on hand to answer your general questions about how to use Payza and how to get the most out of your Payza account. And that’s why we have a bunch of social media channels to connect with you on, like Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus.

Tell Us What You Think!

We are continuing to focus on the most important part of our business – you! When you have a moment, we would love it if you could complete a short, 4-question survey about your experience with Payza Customer Support. We’ll be reviewing your comments and using it to improve our services.

Fill out the Payza Customer Support survey:

From the Payza FAQs to our forum to Facebook,  you have plenty of ways to connect with us, no matter what time or day it is – we’re here to help. Placing a strong emphasis on customer support allows us to be in constant contact with our members and let us find out exactly what you want and expect from Payza. This way we can tailor our services to meet your needs.

Thank you for your time and feedback!
