This is a Bidvest Bank promotional feature

Businesses across South Africa are driving a major foreign exchange trend – the swing to online payments.

As the country’s foreign exchange specialists, Bidvest Bank maintains a multi-channel payments offering. Clients who prefer to operate face to face can organise payments at their local branch. Other clients with longstanding relationships with trusted dealers in the bank’s dealing room may prefer to phone their dealer.

But increasingly, clients are adopting the Bidvest Bank Global Payments Online™ (GPO) platform.

The basic system has proved itself over several years. Bidvest Bank was the first to introduce a web-based realtime payment system. Subsequent developments have vindicated its faith in this fast, reliable and convenient option.

Competitive transaction pricing is a key driver of client take-up, but security, convenience and ease of use support the overall proposition.

Bidvest Bank offers free installation. The system is activated at no charge and clients have no need to modify existing IT infrastructure.

User training is free. There are no hidden costs and no licence fees. Clients pay per transaction in line with the bank’s simple and transparent billing model.

GPO clients are given a user name and password, opening the way to Bidvest Bank's online portal. They can then use the service from any point – anywhere in the world – that offers a secure internet connection.

GPO …

Places and prices foreign exchange orders online
Answers online exchange rate enquiries
Authorises orders in realtime and provides confirmation
Provides market and foreign exchange news

GPO is fast becoming the norm, thanks to this versatile all-in-one offering.
