Welcome I

t’s great to bring you the Winter 2018 edition of the epayWorld magazine as we all prepare for the colder months and continue to get down to serious business. This issue is full of useful news topics that should have everyone very excited as we shine the spotlight on a range of new opportunities for you to seize upon. Our cover feature on page 8 details how digital music streaming now accounts for over half of all music sales in Australia. Statistics show that we are streaming music for over three hours a day – generally on a mobile phone and in all facets of our lives – and we should only expect these numbers to increase. We at epay are pleased to let you know we have you covered in this category. Our retailers wishing to capitalise on this growing phenomenon should be promoting our music streaming products – Spotify, Google Play and Apple iTunes – in key areas of your store. This can be done via our gift card stands that are available, once again for a limited time, at discounted prices (see page 21). We are also pleased to announce the availability of our all-new point of sale marketing collateral (see page 28-29).

“Thai Kee IGA Haymarket – which is one of Australia’s largest specialty supermarkets – has increased sales by up to 15 per cent since it began accepting Alipay payments in store.” Our relationship with Chinese alternative payments giant Alipay is also continuing to prove very beneficial to those retailers who have turned on this new service. Thai Kee IGA Haymarket – which is one of Australia’s largest specialty supermarkets – has increased sales by up to 15 per cent since it began accepting Alipay payments in store. On page 24 we speak with their Business Manager Mariana Yudas about how this has been done and highlight how other stores can easily replicate their success. In this issue we bring you two separate software-focused features where we concentrate on how this fantastic category can boost sales for our electronics retailers. The feature on page 14 details the size of Australia’s software retailing market, who the big players are, why people buy these products and compares competing products in various software categories. The second of our software features on page 18 delves deeper into the epay range and identifies the hot products across the four key categories – Productivity, Creativity, Accounting and Internet Security. We also highlight why aspects of our software range should be promoted in your stores ahead of the end of the financial year. Happy trading everyone and we’ll see you again soon in our Spring 2018 edition where we’ll get you geared up for the best approach to Summer trading. Kind regards, Matt Blayney Country Manager

Thai Kee IGA Haymarket’s Business Manager Mariana Yudas

ALIPAY PAYS OFF

One of Australia’s largest specialty supermarkets says it has increased sales by almost 15 per cent since it began accepting Alipay payments in store.

L

ocated close to Chinatown, Paddy’s Market and the UTS, Thai Kee IGA Haymarket in Sydney has a proud history catering to Chinese locals and visitors who want goods sourced direct from Asia. The specialty supermarket now caters to their payment preferences as well and the benefits have been immediate and significant. Thai Kee’s Business Manager Mariana Yudas said “sales had increased by approximately 10 to 15 per cent” since it implemented the Alipay payment service at the start of the year. Much of this momentum, Yudas said, can be attributed to a promotional campaign they ran over the Chinese New Year period which saw customers receive a 10 per cent discount on all purchases over $100 when they used Alipay. “This campaign helped generate 30 to 50 Alipay transactions per day and thousands of dollars in sales value across the store,” she said. 24

ep ay WIN T ER 2018


ALIPAY SPOTLIGHT The use of Alipay POS material in key areas has helped drive extra sales

“Catering to Chinese customers can be very lucrative,” Thai Kee’s Business Manager Mariana Yudas.

“Catering to Chinese customers can be very lucrative and in addition to accepting Alipay, it’s the little touches that count, like having signage in Mandarin and Cantonese, along with ensuring staff can speak the same languages as their clientele.” Yudas added that Alipay had proved popular outside of the Chinese New Year period. “Alipay has been very popular in our supermarket. It’s being used by many of our regular customers but also tourists,” Yudas said. “We’ve also noticed Chinese students using Alipay to buy noodles and snacks that get them through their studies. Australian made nougat and lanolin is also very popular with our Chinese shoppers.” Looking ahead, Yudas said the supermarket was considering another Alipay promotional campaign during Golden Week which is a Chinese national holiday associated with extra spending. WHAT IS ALIPAY? It is a payment method used by over 600 million active users worldwide and is more widely used than cash in China. Alipay lets its users conduct transactions directly from their mobile devices using QR code technology. Alipay is an exceptionally fast and simple digital wallet that can be used at the pointof-sale. Businesses can also use the service to communicate with their customers, notifying them when there are promotions or discounts to get them in-store.

Never give out voucher numbers over the phone, even if the caller claims to be from epay; or a product vendor; or from a Government Department.
