Oi Brazil! Add Funds to Your Payza Account with Boleto and Make Transactions in Brazilian Real

New services for Payza members in Brazil, the land of sun, tans, and monuments by Niemeyer.

Our Brazilian members can now add funds to their Payza accounts using the popular Boleto payment system. As simple as paying a utility bill, a Boleto money transfer takes one to two business days to process and those funds will then be available within your account. The fee to Add Funds by Boleto is 5%.

How to Add Funds by Boleto

Adding funds to your Payza account e-wallet using Boleto is simple. First, request the deposit from your Payza account, then pay the deposit at an authorized processor, such as a post office, bank, or supermarket. That’s all there is to it, in a couple of days, those funds will be credited to your Payza account and ready to spend.

Here are the precise steps to follow:

  1. In your Payza account, click “Add Funds” in the top menu.
  2. Select “Boleto”.
  3. Enter the amount of Reals you want to deposit, your Boleto Personal Identification Number, and an optional “Description”.
  4. Click “Add Funds”.
  5. Review and confirm your transaction request.
  6. We will provide you with your Boleto transaction number. It is important to print or write down this information in order to complete your deposit.
  7. Visit an authorized processor with your transaction number and pay for your deposit.

Making transactions with Brazilian Reals

With the Boleto deposit option now linked to Payza, we were able to add the Brazilian Real to our list of currencies you can use to make most—but not all—online transactions with your Payza account.

You can perform the following transactions using Brazilian Reals:

  • Deposits to Payza
  • Make online payments and send funds
  • Convert Reals to foreign currencies supported by Payza, such as US Dollars

The New Payza Business Manual is Your Ultimate Guide for Processing Online Payments

Now that you’re set up, our complementary manual will show how e-commerce merchants can best use our digital payment platform.

We are eager to share our latest information resource from the Payza Reference Center. Once you’ve completed the steps of our Merchant Setup Guide and start receiving payments, you can continue receiving guidance from our detailed Payza Business Manual. The manual provides in-depth, step-by-step instructions to assist you with day-to-day payments and business administration duties, as well as a consolidated overview of features available to you as a member of our payment platform.

You can consult the manual whenever you like, here, where you will find helpful guides for the following services and features:

Just like our Setup Guides in the Reference Center, we organized the manual into easy to navigate sections to help you when submitting customer support inquiries. If you encounter difficulties managing your payments, simply indicate the section in the guide you are experiencing difficulties with when you submit a customer support ticket.

(You can find our setup guide for Personal Accounts here.)

Your opinions matter: Tell us what you think

We made this manual for you, our merchants. Though we have a good understanding of your needs, we know that we can strengthen the content of our manual further with your feedback.

We encourage all Payza merchants to view the guide and suggest edits for sections that are unclear, missing information, or are simply not up to par with your expectations. We review all comments and suggested edits daily; rest assured, your inputs will guide us in keeping this manual robust and complete, as well as guide us in developing future resources for Payza members.

Payza Integrates In-Account Direct Messaging Customer Support Feature

payza news media coverage

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.

But we needed the right partner that understood the challenges, preferences and needs of the market. And we’ve found that with New RAMPgreen Technologies. Indian businesses, freelancers and personal users can now hold rupees in their Payza accounts to shop online, pay bills, and send money to family and friends in India. With NRGT we are able to offer Indians a way to get on with their daily lives without wasting added time and money on the extra hoops they have been used to jumping through to access their money in Indian online.”

“Payza has one of the largest merchant and consumer user bases in the world,” said Sunil Soi, CEO of NRGT. “And India is one of the largest, if not the largest, group of IT, marketing and support freelancers. With Payza India, Indians will be able to benefit from the global versatility, support and security of the Payza global platform, while experiencing a payment service that understands what it is to be living and working in India. NRGT is thrilled to be involved in delivering a payment solution tailored to the needs of Indians, and honored to be Payza’s ‘boots on the ground’ in India.”

New Payza Fee Structure Means Lower Fees for Bank Wire Withdrawals

Payza will be updating our fee structure as of April 6, 2016, in an effort to deliver the best possible value to our members. Most notably, the fee for Bank Wire Withdrawals has been reduced from $25.00 per transaction to $15.00! Similarly, the fee to Add Funds by Bank Wire has also been significantly reduced, from $20.00 down to just $8.00 per transaction.

The savings reflect countless hours of hard work from our team to secure lower rates from our providers, in order to pass those savings onto our members.

These savings were made possible in part by the recent surge in volume Payza has experienced since the start of 2016. This year has already been an exciting one at Payza, as we’ve seen our daily signups increase by over 400% since the same period last year!

The new lowered fees on one of our most popular deposit and withdrawal method is our way of saying thank you to all of our members, new and old.

Other fee changes include:

  • The fee to Add Funds by Bank Transfer in Euro currency will be reduced from 2.75€ to 2.50€
  • The fee to Withdraw by Bank Transfer in Euro currency will be reduced from 3.00€ to 2.50€
  • The fee to receive funds and e-wallet payments will increase from 2.50% + $0.25 to 2.90% + $0.30
  • The base fee to receive direct credit card payments will also increase from 6.49% + $0.25 to 6.99% + $0.59

Bangladeshis Tell Us what Payza Means to Them

Payza in Bangladesh

Recently we spoke with a few of our users in Bangladesh to hear what they thought about Payza. Their responses blew us away. “Convenience, security, and obviously, it’s flexible,” those are just some of the words Bangladeshis are using to describe the benefits of Payza’s services.

When you think of e-commerce, Bangladesh probably isn’t the first country that comes to mind, but at Payza, we’re hoping to change that. The Bangladesh government and the country’s banks have shown a commitment to strengthening that sector of the economy, and Payza will be there to help.

Payza’s power users in Bangladesh have already started taking advantage of the services we offer, which lets them shop online, pay bills, and send and receive money. Payza is a great way for Bangladeshi freelancers to receive payment for their work, and it’s also great for Bangladeshis working abroad who want to send money home to their family. Soon, you will even be able to pay your phone bill and recharge your mobile thanks to a new partnership with Grameenphone.

Bangladeshis love the services Payza provides in Bangladesh, but you don’t have to just take our word for it, hear for yourself what they’re saying about Payza (in English and Bangla).
