PayWise service resumes

Payment service provider PayWise is back after a three-month hiatus.

Effective April 1, Paywise payments were no longer accepted at National Lotteries Control Board (NLCB) Lotto agents, following concerns raised in relation to the oversight of the payment collection aggregators and the lack of resources by the NLCB network manager to oversee the process.

Paywise Limited, incorporated in 2013, provides alternative means of payments that are easy to use, convenient and secure. It accepts payments from customers and transfers the money into organisations’ and businesses’ bank accounts.

PayWise advised that its new and improved service will be rolled out in phases from Tuesday.

CEO Ian T Alleyne said the upgraded service will provide a sustainable solution that will create opportunities for businesses to partner with and profit from the Paywise platform.

The rollout begins with select agents located across both Trinidad and Tobago, with more agents to be added to the network weekly. For now, the service has been reintroduced with 13 locations in Trinidad and one in Tobago.

PayWise advised that merchants will be advised via email when their customers can once again use the system.

This communication will be disseminated in phases to allow for proper onboarding, PayWise said.
