Absa payment pebble is awesome!! It has added so much value to our business it’s frightening… and those who have dealt with Spit Braai Delivery will know that I’m a sucker for great service! From the first application, to my dealings with Clayton, to the delivery of our devices, and the subsequent use thereof. You see, what makes the Absa payment pebble huge for our business is that the person booking the function doesn’t need to always carry the deposit, meaning all guests can pay individually on the day.

Also, clients can pay via credit card on budget if the function is only a few months away. Payment pebble gives our clients options, and that’s what I’m loving about it.  Oh, and just so you know, this post is unsolicited – in fact, we don’t even bank with Absa.

How it works

There’s an app that is pre-downloaded – and the device (we have 3) is “synced” with the device. You then hit “start transaction”, add amount & insert card. The client then adds their pin on a roller thingy-magic, which is designed so no-one can see what numbers you’re pressing. It actually makes it really secure which I’m very happy about.

Costs

The upfront costs are really minimal (like very minimal) – I’m not going to quote prices in case Absa changes it, and I don’t want to have to keep a look out. From a % per transaction point of view: 3.75% if you don’t bank with Absa, and 3.2 if you do. Again, that may change…

Are there any area’s where the device can improve? Yes. I’m not sure if it’s possible or not, but it does take about 3 minutes per transaction. If Absa could get that down to about 2 minutes, I reckon it’s would be a 100% winner. I’m going with 95% at this point.
