The Ecentric Universal Payments Gateway presents your bills electronically to your customers for easy initiation of payment using the gateway, participating banks, retailers and wallet providers. The service ensures the correct amount is paid to the correct biller with the correct reference everytime. There are two services, Quicklinks and Bill Aggregation.
Quicklinks enables your organisation to present their bills electronically to your customers with a simple link which, when clicked, routes your customer to Ecentric’s online gateway for easy payment. The simple link can either be created by Ecentric on your behalf using the Quick Links Service or you can create the link yourself using the Quick Links Express Portal. In both cases, the link is then sent by you to your customer by SMS or email.
The Bill Aggregation service enables you to send bills needing payment to Ecentric, who will present them to your customers on a variety of channels including wallet service providers, banks and voucher platforms. Your customer will then access the bill on that channel and make payment.
