The inefficiencies of making business payments with hand-written cheques have been a business concern for some time. While the process is time-consuming at the front end, reconciliation of accounts and receivable can also be challenging.
Improving that process formed the foundation of WayPay.
Our team of business professionals set about to create a more streamlined payment solution.
WayPay is a fast, easy and cost-effective way to pay and manage all the business expenses of an organization digitally.
Businesses access their existing bank accounts and credit cards in one easy-to-use platform, and all payments are made online. There are many financial and organizational benefits, and record keeping is all in one place too, at your fingertips.
While over 51% of companies still write cheques to pay bills and make other payments, the WayPay process streamlines everything and improves cash flow too.
Our mission was to make business payments simple and more cost effective – and that is what still drives everyone in our organization each and every day.
