Executive Summary
What if I don't have online banking?
As Online Direct Debit Payments have become the standard in consumer point of sale (POS) transactions (over 50% of all transactions), online Direct Debit transactions are destined to become the standard for online commerce in Canada.

Currently, with the unraveling of our world-wide financial systems, indications are that future credit will be more expensive and less accessible. Some major credit cards have already raised their interest rates by 5% to an annual rate of 24.95%!

The entire world is examining what role credit should play in our future lives. A broad consensus of consumers believes that easy credit breeds irresponsible financial behaviour, which in turn, is the cause of our current state of affairs. Given the choice, an ever increasing percentage of consumers are choosing debit over credit.

Additional payment options result in increased sales
Online consumers do not like to submit personal financial information on the internet. This observation can be easily borne out by the number of purchase (cart) abandonment experienced on most web sites. Of the more than 3 billion consumer financial transactions taking place annually in Canada, 50% are completed via debit card. The remaining 50% is evenly split between credit card and cash transactions. If you are not offering Direct Debit Transfer Online, significant sales on your site are being lost to your competition.

Broaden your market reach
Youth market. Many young people may not own a credit card, but each one of them does own a bank account, and most bank account holders do have a debit card. This market segment is tech savvy and very comfortable with online commerce.

No credit card. Whether through financial mishap or philosophical opposition or any number of lesser reasons, there are millions of consumers without credit cards. Almost all of these consumers have a debit card.

Debit Transfer integrates seamlessly with your existing online infrastructure
To offer Online Debit Transfers, a merchant simply offers the consumer another payment choice during the checkout process on his website. Clear and detailed instructions are provided for merchant site configuration, with extensive support resources available, should the need arise.

Debit transactions are a merchant's best choice
A debit card transaction is essentially a cash transaction. Within seconds of initiating a transaction, a merchant will see the payment in his Debitway account. As long as a merchant fulfills his obligation to the consumer, there will be no chargebacks. The customers bank guarantees payer identity, so there are no authentication costs. Debit transactions are less complex, resulting in lower discount rates.

Reduce merchant overhead
The customer's bank guarantees payer identity and payment. The online merchant doesn't even see the customers personal financial information, eliminating the need to store and safeguard something that he doesn't have, reducing costs.
