Gave me all the usual options earlier, Credit Card via Windcave, PayPal, Poli, Finance Cards etc...

 

It was finally cheaper to buy RAM locally than import!

They have online EFTPOS too which is really neat if you're with one of the few banks that supports it.

Sorry mods wasn't thinking when I posted.

 

So got off ipad and on to desk and payment option change is obvious. But as a ANZ customer my only non fee option is poli, credit card has a 2.5% fee, on a $700 purchase its a reasonable addon, and  online eftpos is only ASB and Westpac. Id like to buy in person but PBtech is not in my town and Im not paying with poli.

PBTech have always applied a credit card fee, even when buying in store.

I don’t usually begrudge them that. They can’t keep their prices as low as they are and absorb the credit card fees in their margin.

I suppose my problem is with my bank not pbtech, I would’ve used online eftpos if it was available, but my bank only allows poli. And the issues with poli have been discussed many times on this site.

Is bank transfer not an option for you ?

Bank transfer is pretty quick with PBtech - why is that not an option for you?

Bank transfer looks to be disabled during the Black Friday Sale period.

They usually disable bank transfer during sales, only allowing instant payments. Otherwise people could buy stuff, then not pay for them and they could effectively sit unsold.
