Bidvest Bank: Bidvest Merchant Services

Bidvest Bank remains a proud partner and sponsor to SATSA. As such, we would like to again re-iterate and present our members with an overview of the benefits that you will enjoy in partnering with not only the Bank but specifically the Merchant/Acquiring team (BMS).

Bidvest Merchant Services offers existing and potentially new merchants a world-class Point-of-Sale (POS) and e-Commerce payment solution that facilitates fast, secure and reliable transaction processing, in order to successfully run cashless business operations.

Through the range of smart screen mobile and portable (POS) devices and seamless e-Commerce portals, local and foreign debit and credit cards are accepted for payment via Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Diners Club associations.

Acquiring benefits for your organisation will include: 

  • Portable dual SIM devices for guaranteed connectivity
  • e-Commerce solutions via our choice in internet payment gateways (DPO PayGate & IPG)
  • Split funding capabilities
  • Free online account management tool (RAM), that ensures access to real-time transaction data, settlement batches and reporting. 

One of the many SATSA member/BMS success stories, which carries complete testimony of the proud relationship, stems from Vernon Wait of Pembury Tours & Lalibela Game Reserve. Established in 1996, Pembury Tours, part of the Travel Smart Crew Group, emerged as one of the leading tour operators in Southern & Eastern Africa and is an esteemed member of SATSA for many years.

BMS approached Vernon in early 2017 and offered him the benefits of ‘switching’ his Acquiring/Merchant business to Bidvest. He agreed and joined the BMS team in July 2017. Today Vernon remains, not only a successful merchant but also an ambassador of BMS. He has since migrated his Business Bank account(s) to Bidvest Bank, thereby enjoying an average saving of +/- 40% in banking costs per month.

Bidvest Merchant Services are proud to quote the above story as one of many in the SATSA and Tour Operators space – you too can enjoy the benefits of such a relationship with the BMS team.
