Welcome S

eason’s Greetings everyone. Well, another year is fast coming to a close. I trust you have all had a great year and are looking forward to a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year. The last epayWorld magazine of 2017 highlights why we have you covered this Christmas. Our Christmas cover feature from page 18 details our comprehensive gift card range and why it delivers gifting options for all members of the family and for all budgets. By stocking and promoting our gift card range you will help customers take the stress out of shopping for that illusive gift this Christmas. This will allow them to give their loved ones the choice of an amazing array of exciting gifts that include luxury holidays, shopping sprees, fine dining experiences or great outdoor activities. As we enter the peak gift card selling season, we spotlight the Australian gift card industry (Page 8). Our three page feature shows that the Australia’s gift card market, in terms of transaction value, is expected to record a CAGR of 12.2 percent during 2017-2021 and grow to reach $5.1 billion by 2021, increasing from $3.2 billion in 2017. The article provides valuable insights on who is buying gift cards, where they are buying them, what they are being spent on and what the future holds for the industry.

"Australia’s gift card market, in terms of transaction value, is expected to record a CAGR of 12.2 percent during 2017-2021 to reach $5.1 billion by 2021, increasing from $3.2 billion in 2017." The great news for our retailers is that prepaid gift card purchases in Australia will continue to rise, so dedicating prominent space in your store will be well worth the effort. Keep an eye on what’s hot in gift cards with our latest product releases that include The Luxury Escapes gift card, which will certainly be in high demand this gift giving season. Remember, the best thing about gift cards is they have a zero inventory cost and you only pay for the cards when they are sold. We are also excited to officially launch our relationship with WeChat Pay – one of China’s leading third-party online payment platforms. WeChat Pay makes online and offline payment fast and convenient and by offering their services in your store you have access to their enormous base of loyal users. Take a look at the WeChat Pay feature on page 12 and call our customer service team on 1300 301 408 to find out how it can benefit you. To help you further maximise your sales this year, our special half price stand offer is back so you should stock up now on our range of merchandised stands ahead of the Christmas rush. There are four different sized stands to choose from, with each stand coming fully stocked with gift cards. These stands are designed to be used on your counter, feature wall or free standing in prominent places in your store. Find all the details on page 29. And don’t miss our retailer profile this issue. We have a chat with the Leading Edge Computers 2017 Store of the Year owner Tegan Le Page from Griffith in NSW. On page 22 she explains why she started stocking epay’s products, how they’ve benefitted her and just why other retailers should be doing the same. On behalf of the whole epay team, a big thank you to all of our dedicated, hardworking retailers across the country. Happy holiday trading to all and we look forward to seeing you again in 2018! Kind regards, Matt Blayney Country Manager e p a y S U M M E R 2 017

RETAILER PROFILE

SPOT LIGHT... Tegan Le Page Owner, Leading Edge Computers Griffith

How long have you been stocking epay products and why did you start? We started selling epay products back in 2011. Then, we believed providing an extra service to our customers like prepaid phone credit was a really appealing business option. Since then we’ve expanded our range of epay products significantly. Which epay products do you stock? We now keep a large range of epay products in stock including the Trend Micro and Norton internet security ranges, Microsoft Office, Adobe Suites, Xbox, iTunes, Netflix, Stan and Spotify. We also sell the prepaid mobile phone and data top-up vouchers. How have these benefitted your store? We’ve had great success with epay products. They help us to increase our range without increasing our inventory cost. It’s easy to ensure we always have plenty of stock ready to sell in store. How do the epay merchandised stands benefit sales? The stands are a fantastic visual reminder about epay products for both customers and staff. We can easily move them around the store based on current promotions. How else do you market the fact that you stock epay products? We advertise epay products on our website, social media and in store. We also mention it in some of our TV advertising. Which epay products prove most popular? Our best sellers are Microsoft Office, Trend Micro, iTunes and Telstra prepaid vouchers. What is the POS experience like in relation to these products? For our customers, it’s fantastic because we never run out of stock and they don’t need to enter their credit card details online. For our staff, it’s quick and easy to process epay sales – just swipe the card and follow the prompts! What would you say to other retailers thinking of selling the epay range of products? We’d highly recommend epay to other retailers. There are no overheads involved, and you can still stock a large range of products. epay products also keep customers coming into the store so you’ve got nothing to lose!
