CLEAR eBusiness Seminars Demystify Online Payment

CLEAR Communications is holding a series of seminars in October to demystify online transactions for businesses.

CLEAR's ebusiness experts will showcase the options available to businesses wanting to get online in the series of breakfast meetings in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

Ebusiness manager Mike Skinner says fear of payment fraud has curbed consumers' willingness to buy goods online. A lack of payment options has held back business-to-consumer transactions.

"Merchants face the challenge of attracting customers willing to buy online despite their fears. They also need to find a simple, reliable, affordable means of collecting payments for Internet transactions," says Mr Skinner.

"Many merchants have no idea where to start looking for a payment solution."

CLEAR has developed an online payment system called PaySafe, which allows businesses to process credit card transactions over an Internet connection with their bank. CLEAR designed the service to remove ebusiness barriers for growing firms and the PaySafe Starter Pack - covering up to 50 transactions a month - is free-of-charge.

The seminars will cover topics such as encouraging consumers to buy online, what to look for when choosing a payment system and how to avoid costly outlays for hardware or software. The dates are:

Auckland Wednesday, 11 October at 7.30am Wellington Wednesday, 18 October at 7.30am Christchurch Thursday, 26 October at 7.30am

Details are available on the CLEAR web site at www.clear.co.nz and registrations are also being accepted on the toll-free number 0508 983 983.
