What is POLi™?

POLi™ is the online payment option which facilitates a Pay Anyone internet banking payment from a customer’s bank account to a merchant.

Why choose POLi™?

POLi™ is a great alternative for people without credit cards, or for those who have them - but would prefer not to use them to shop online.

POLi™ is favoured by customers and merchants as it guides the customer through the payment process. The amount, reference information and banking details are pre-populated ensuring there are no reconciliation errors. When the payment is confirmed the merchant and customer both receive a completed payment notification ensuring you can receive your goods or services quicker.

Who can use POLi™?

Anyone who has access to the Pay Anyone functionality offered by a supported online banking facility can use POLi™ provided they meet the technical requirements in the next section.
