FinanceFeeds Editorial Team

Global multi-asset fintech group, Plus500, has announced the addition of three new local payment methods: PayNow, POLi and Google Pay.

Customers now have even greater choice for conducting secure transactions on the Plus500 trading platform. This is another step in the company’s drive to enhance its user experience. 

These three payment methods were selected due to the ease of fund transfer they provide and their excellent levels of customer experience. These additions are in line with Plus500’s commitment to offering localised experiences, including support for over 30 languages, local versions of the Plus500 website and mobile app to access the optimal financial instruments in each region. 

PayNow is a leading payment services provider in Singapore, allowing clients to transfer funds securely and seamlessly via 10 participating banks and three participating non-bank financial Institutions in the country.

POLi is one of the most popular payment services in Australia, offering secure and smooth fund transfers through a network of 16 banks in Australia and seven in New Zealand. Google Pay, meanwhile has a global presence and allows transactions in the domestic currency of the country in which the service is being used.

Currently, the Google Pay option is available for Plus500 clients using the Android app of the Plus500 trading platform. For now, Google Pay is available for clients in selected countries. The company anticipates that Google Pay will soon be available for users across other regions and operating systems.

To select their preferred payment method, traders simply need to go to the Plus500 trading platform and choose from the various payment options offered.
