How to contact us
You can contact us by email, web chat or telephone. Our contact details are provided on the “Contact” page of our Website.
Business use of our service
You must be 18 years or over. All business users must complete our KYC process and be verified by our internal audit process. Once you have been verified, you will be eligible to access our services. Username and passwords generated by you and managed by you are your responsibility. 2FA is mandatory on all business access.
This is determined by your banking rails provider. Instant Pay anticipates using existing NPP frameworks to ensure payments are transacted and remitted as quickly as possible. We do not guarantee that any participating bank will transact instantly with the Instant Pay platform. Each NPP participating bank will have its own policy for NPP payments. Currently NPP payments settlement and completion of cleared funds times will vary. Instant Pay does have redundancy measures in place to cater to any varied timing of bank related NPP payments.
Each business customer of Instant Pay will receive access to our business console. This is a web accessible console that will show all transactional information. Access to the business console requires you to enable 2FA to ensure the security of your data. For security purposes, we disable the ability to edit your business profile, contact details and banking details from your console. If you require changes made to your business profile please contact us directly. You will be required to meet our identification requirements to make any changes to an existing business profile.
Responsibility of receiving and sending monies

Notifications via API
Instant Pay API does provide the ability to communicate to your customers via email, sms or other forms of digital communication driven via our API. We do not include any cost of deployment of these forms of communication. You (the merchant) are responsible for any costs incurred in the communication flow to your customers. Generally, this will be tied to your hosting service and requires minimal management.
Uptime of servers
While we build your infrastructure to best handle any unanticipated downtime, we do not guarantee the uptime of any servers that the Instant Pay console operates in. We recommend but do not enforce enabling the following hosting environment standards
- SSL. A minimum requirement.
- CSP. We include this as part of our code.
- MultiAZ. Fallback contingency to another server location.
- RDS. CPU driven standalone databases, to ensure data is kept away from any front end code.
- Replication. Database replication in case of attack.
Our recommended servers have built in DDOS attack mitigation, however we do not guarantee its effectiveness.
