Blink PayNow is much cheaper than credit card payments and offers a secure and easy way for your customers to pay directly from their bank accounts. Add "Pay with Blink PayNow" on your Xero invoices today.


Blink PayNow is a new secure online payment method that enables you to be easily be paid from your customer’s New Zealand bank account, by adding a "Pay with Blink PayNow" button to your Xero invoice.

The advantages of this method of payment include: -

  • Payment fees are materially lower than those charged for card payments (0.95% capped at $3.00 NZD per successful transaction)

  • Use of secure Bank APIs that BlinkPay has contracted directly with banks. We do not use ‘screen scraping’ ensuring your customers are safe.

  • Payments will happen in real-time if your customer banks with the same bank as you (all other banks will typically clear within two hours on business days)

  • No payment errors as the payment data is pre-populated so customers only need to approve the payment and it's all done.

  • All payments are automatically matched to the right invoice and marked as 'paid' in real-time, making reconciliation a breeze.

Best of all, you don't need any technical knowledge to connect the BlinkPay service to your Xero account, and once approved, a merchant can set themselves up in minutes!
