​eWAY responds to growing NZ demand with Auckland office opening

eWAY opens permanent office in Auckland to cater to local merchants.

Following a public launch in April this year and the continued growth of the New Zealand eCommerce sector, eWAY has opened a permanent office in Auckland to cater to local merchants.

According to the Asia Pacific eCommerce payments provider, this move is “important in light of the boom in online retail locally.”

The recent BNZ Online Retail Report revealed total online retail spending in July was up 13 percent compared to July 2014, with online spending in several categories more than 20 percent higher than July last year.

As a result, two eWAY Business Success Managers will provide hands-on, local support to more than 1200 Kiwi eCommerce merchants, including the likes of the All Blacks, Debtor Daddy, TradeMe & Wise Advice, who use eWAY to process their online payments.

“eWAY’s Merchant Services has helped us simplify the way we process our MultiCurrency Billing,” says Matthew McFedries, CEO, Debtor Daddy.

“By connecting seamlessly with Chargify and providing us with graphical overviews of our daily transaction volumes, we’ve found it easier to expand our product to other countries and simplify the way we bill.

“We were able to quickly launch a new annual plan which has boosted revenue, and significantly decrease our transaction costs.”

eWAY’s growing success in New Zealand follows 19 years of research and development supporting 20,000 merchants in Australia, with the company now rolling out its marquee product offerings in New Zealand.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
