No banks, no worries! It’s now easy to start selling online


SecurePay Online Payments makes it easy to start accepting online payments. All you need to get started is an internet connection and your key business information, which is required for the online application form.

Starting an e-commerce business used to be a lengthy and complex process. One step in the process of getting a business ready to accept payments online was getting an internet merchant account from a bank, which could often take up to five weeks.

Now, our new online payments solution, SecurePay Online Payments, makes it easier than ever to start accepting online payments. SecurePay’s new payment solution does this by combining an internet merchant account with a secure payment gateway.

This means business owners can say goodbye to having to trek to the bank, struggle with complicated forms and applications, and then sit around waiting for up to five weeks to get an internet merchant account. 

How to apply for SecurePay Online Payments

As a business owner, you can simply apply for SecurePay Online Payments by filling in the online application form. There you will find a checklist of information that you will need to provide in your application.

Once your application has been accepted, SecurePay will send you an agreement to sign electronically. You simply need to add your digital signature to this electronic agreement – we supply full details to help you with that – so you don’t have the hassle of having to print and scan any documents.

Once your digitally signed agreement has been received, you will be sent test and live account credentials. This allows you or your web developer to test and integrate SecurePay Online Payments within your shopping cart or e-commerce website.

Once you’ve rigorously tested your website and you’re ready to open your online store, you simply switch to your live account. At that point a compliance form will be displayed – this checks that your website has all the required elements, such as a returns policy and terms and conditions. Once the compliance form has been submitted, you are ready to start accepting online payments!

One Australian-based point of contact

While SecurePay Online Payments can get you online quickly – typically within five business days – the payments solution has been specifically designed to be easy for you to use and integrate.

Having all the elements of your online payment solution with one company means you have one point of contact, with no need to juggle different contacts at separate organisations. Plus, SecurePay is based in Australia and our support team is available around the clock to answer any questions you might have. That means your call won’t ever be routed via an overseas call centre, making it easy and simple for you to get in touch.

“We’ve worked with more than 40,000 Australian businesses and organisations, so we really understand what business owners need from their online payments solution,” says Nathan Brown, SecurePay General Manager.

“That’s why SecurePay Online Payments has been specifically designed to make it easier than ever before for businesses to start selling online. And our expert team is just a local phone call away to help with any questions you might have.”
