Sydney (March 18, 2019) – CitiXsys, developer of the iVend Retail integrated omnichannel platform along with its channel partner, Virroo Pty Ltd. has successfully certified an add-on for Afterpay Australia. Afterpay is the leading platform that offers clients the ability to buy now and pay in 4 equal instalments, interest-free.
Afterpay is driving retail innovation by allowing leading retailers to offer a ‘buy now, receive now, pay later’ service that does not require end-customers to enter into a traditional loan or pay any upfront fees or interest to Afterpay, and currently has over 800,000 customers and over 6,000 retail merchants on-boarded.
Finally, more payment flexibility for your customers!
Afterpay is now integrated to iVend POS and available to retailers in Australia
