Our 6 Technology Hacks to Get Your Business Ready for 2021

Raise your hand if you can’t wait to see the end of 2020? Everyone? And if you’re taking a much needed end of year break, why not use the time to plan killer strategies for your business in the new year? Take your workflow from simply churning, to reaching mind-blowing success in 2021 with 6 of our best technology hacks.

 

1. Schedule it. Post it. Stay ahead. Stay relevant.

 

Some might say, business is only as successful as your social media posts. While that may not be completely accurate, it is important to have an influential online presence.

To achieve this, balance is key. Especially if you are a small business owner without a designated social media manager, you likely can’t spend the majority of your time running profiles on Facebook, Instagram or LinkedIn. Yet, social media can be an extremely powerful digital tool for brand marketing and customer engagement. It’s all about reach!

Hootsuite, Buffer and Loomly are great social media management platforms to ease the burden of maintaining a social media presence, by allowing you to schedule posts, interact and engage with your audience. Some platforms even provide content ideas to help build relevant posts.

 

2. Have direct contact with your customers

 

Have a new product range coming up? Want to reward loyal clients with a VIP sale? Customers want to feel special, and believe it or not, they also want to hear directly from you.  Plus, a growing customer email database is invaluable for ongoing and new sales.

Email marketing services such as MailChimp and Constant Contact can help design and send newsletters quickly and efficiently. You will also be able to review which newsletters had the best open rate and click through success. The more emails opened, the better the engagement!

 

3. Keep files and documents organised, secure and accessible

 

As your business expands, so will your paperwork. Important documents, images and client correspondence need to be stored safely, which is best accomplished by using a digital cloud.

Using file storage and access tools like Google Drive, Dropbox or Evernote offers a backup solution to give you peace of mind. Also security settings allow access from anywhere through any device.

 

4. A strong, successful team collaborates.

 

No doubt, remote working trends are here to stay. Communication and collaboration software like Asana and Monday.com will keep you and your team in check regarding weekly and daily tasks!

Zoom and Skype for Business are great video conferencing tools to maintain face-to-face interaction. Slack and Google Hangouts work well when it comes to daily, frequent communication.

 

5. Find your next awesome freelancer

 

Sometimes there’s a busy season or tricky project that calls for an extra pair of creative hands.

The good news is, there are a ton of great freelancers out there. However, finding the perfect one with reasonable rates can feel like searching for a needle in the haystack.

Whether you’re looking for someone to do work on a straightforward logo design or build a mobile app from scratch, look into outsourcing websites such as Fiverr, Upwork and freelancer.com.

Depending on which site you use, projects and job descriptions can be sent through or posted publicly. Some sites allow freelancers to contact you directly or will be screened prior. You can also browse profiles, checking the freelancer’s star ratings and starting hourly rates. Some sites offer per project rates.

Make sure payment agreements are confirmed upfront. You don’t want any surprises. Most sites won’t release your payment to the freelancer until you’re completely satisfied with the completed task.

 

6. Make sure you get paid

 

After providing top notch products and offering 5-star customer service, getting paid is what keeps a healthy cashflow.

Don’t get stuck in the drudgery of chasing payments. Instead, make sure to use an efficient payments app that’s easy and versatile for clients to use. Credit cards and online payments are now the majority of clients’ preferred payment method, so ensuring you can accept these payments also ensures you’ll get paid as soon as possible!

Payment process systems like B2Bpay will offer different features, so do some research to figure out what works best for your business.

We suggestion asking the following questions, such as – what are the transaction fees? Are all credit cards accepted? Are there any additional perks like earning business credit card rewards or Qantas Points?

 

How do I pick the right technology for my business?

 

Make sure whatever digital tool you go with, it’s as nimble as your business. Technology should be seamless and hassle-free. The less clicks it takes to get to what you want, the better! Most of all, if a platform feels clunky to use at first, it probably is.

Here are some questions to think about as you go through the different technology options for various business needs:

  • Is there a free trial?
  • Is it easy to use for all parties involved?
  • Is it easily accessible from any location and any device?
  • Is customer support responsive and helpful? Is additional training available?
  • Does it integrate with the other digital tools I’m using?

And finally the most important question – will it help my business grow?

Now you’re all set to kick serious business goals! Make 2021 your year.

How to Pay BPAY With Your Credit Card

As many Australians are familiar, BPAY is an electronic bill payment system in Australia which enables payments to be made through a financial institution’s online mobile or telephone banking facility to organisations which are registered BPAY billers. BPAY can be used to pay bills from over 45,000 businesses including most major household bills! To make a payment, a customer would visit his or her Australian financial institution’s online, mobile or telephone banking facility, where he or she would enter the biller code, reference number and payment amount as well as an indication of the account to be debited, which may also be a credit card. However, some billers do not accept credit cards (or accept payment from a limited list of credit cards) in payment through BPAY, which can be a major inconvenience for many business owners.

So…can I use BPAY using my credit card?

Yes you can, but you should check if you are being charged as a purchase or a cash advance! Some banks might allow you to use BPAY with your credit card if the biller does not accept credit card payments. But in the case, the transaction will be treated as a cash advance and you will be charged a cash advance fee.

So is there a way to pay with credit card, and skip the fee? One way to get around this for your business is to use B2Bpay to pay your BPAY invoices.  In fact, we already have over 30,000 suppliers with a BPAY Biller code set up in our system. And in the event you can’t find your Biller or Supplier on this list, you can simply select ‘Add new biller’ and enter their details!

How does B2Bpay work?

B2Bpay forwards your payment to your biller by BPAY – the same way as if you paid them directly. By using B2Bpay, your credit card issuer will identify the payment as a ‘general’ payment. This means that you will earn FULL credit card points on that transaction, plus it won’t be treated as a cash advance!

Which is faster – BPAY or bank transfer?

Keep in mind that if you are using B2Bpay to make a BPAY payment, you will need to allow 3 business days for the payment to be made. If you are paying a supplier directly via EFT, the funds will usually land in their account instantly or within 1 business day.

What rewards can I earn using my credit card to make BPAY payments?

As mentioned above, using B2Bpay to make a BPAY payment, the payment will be classified as ‘General Spend’ and you will therefore earn your FULL credit card reward points on the payment. What’s more, by using B2Bpay you’ll earn additional Qantas Points (1 point per $100 paid) on top of this (via your Qantas Business Rewards Account).

How to make a BPAY payment using B2Bpay?

It’s really simple. Register for B2Bpay, which you can do straight away (and it’s free). And then you follow the following steps:

  1. 1. Find the BPAY logo on your email or paper bill which will show your Biller code.
  2. 2. Log in to B2Bpay
  3. 3. Select Add a new Biller
  4. 4. Enter the BPAY Biller Code
  5. 5. Make the payment by filling in your reference details and amount.
  6. 6. That’s it! Your bill payment is complete.

Earn Credit Card Points When You Pay Your Tax Bills

Every business comes with unavoidable expenses, and tax bills are at the top of the list. While the costs can be hefty, what if you could earn frequent flyer points while making your payments to the ATO?

As long as you go about it correctly, you can definitely pay your ATO tax bill using your business credit card, allowing you to earn maximum reward points!

This article will explore your options for paying the ATO via credit card, the fees associated with paying via credit card, and the best way to maximise the rewards points you receive from paying your tax bill (including a great hack for earning extra Qantas Points!).

Can you pay the ATO by credit card?

Yes, you can pay the ATO using your credit card – including Visa, MasterCard or Amex. The fees associated with paying the ATO vary based on which card you use, so make sure you use the chart below to identify exactly how much you’ll be charged in credit card fees.

 

Does the ATO accept Amex payments?

Yes, the ATO accepts payments from Amex cards. However, the fee for paying the ATO with an Amex card is 1.45%, which is significantly higher than other domestic credit cards.

 

What are the benefits of paying the ATO by credit card?

There are some good reasons why paying your tax bills by credit card makes sense:

Cash flow

Paying the ATO by credit card means the money doesn’t leave your bank account straight away. Instead you can hold onto your cash during the interest-free period on your credit card, and it won’t cost you any interest if you pay your credit card bill on time^. It can also help you avoid any late payment fees or interest charges if you don’t have the cash available on the due date.

Credit card fees may be tax-deductible

You may be able to claim your credit card processing fee as a tax deduction for your business, which helps offset the additional cost of paying ATO bills by credit card. However, any interest you pay for late credit card payments is generally not tax-deductible.

Credit history

Paying your bills by credit card can be good for your credit history, provided you always pay your credit card bills on time.

Reward points

You may be able to earn rewards points on your tax payments, which wouldn’t be possible if you pay the ATO straight out of your own pocket.

 

What should I watch out for when paying the ATO by credit card?

Reduced or zero rewards points earned

Traditionally, the big downside of paying ATO and government bills – and other bills such as insurance, rates and utilities – on credit card is that these billers are often categorised by your card issuer to earn reduced or ZERO credit card rewards points.

In other words, they’ll let you pay these bills using your credit card (and charge you a credit card processing fee), but you won’t get the full benefit of rewards points.

ATO credit card payment fees

Another downside of paying by credit card is that you’ll pay a card payment fee that wouldn’t apply if you were paying by direct debit.

The ATO charges the following card payment fees:

 Card  Fee
 American Express  1.45%
 MasterCard – International  2.70%
 MasterCard – Domestic Debit  0.15%
 MasterCard – Domestic Credit  0.70%
 Visa – International  2.70%
 Visa – Domestic Debit  0.15%
 Visa – Domestic Credit    0.78%

 

The trade off with card payment fees is that higher fee cards often earn more reward points per dollar than lower fee cards, so the extra benefit may outweigh the extra cost.

Interest if you don’t pay your card off

If you don’t pay off your credit card bill by the due date, you could end up paying additional interest to your card issuer on top of your ATO tax bills and card payment fees.

Some credit cards charge as much as 20% p.a. interest on overdue amounts, which could mean a significant penalty if you’ve put a large tax bill on your card. Again, any interest you pay for late credit card payments is generally not tax-deductible.

 

How do I get the most rewards point when I pay the ATO by credit card?

While card issuers will give you reduced or zero credit card reward points when you pay the ATO, you can increase the reward points you earn by using a third-party payment service like B2Bpay.

 

What is B2Bpay and how does it work?

B2Bpay is a third-party payment service that allows you to pay all your business expenses* online using your credit card.

Unlike using credit cards directly, B2Bpay allows you to pay the ATO while earning FULL credit card points (including Amex).

That means you can earn at least double the credit card points^ than if you paid directly, without paying double the credit card processing fee. Plus you can receive additional bonus Qantas Points on top of that, helping your reward points stack up even faster.

 

How many points can I earn (and what can I do with them)?

If you paid $240,000 per year in BAS, payroll taxes and other business expenses using B2Bpay, you could earn:

    • 240,000 Qantas Points (or credit card points) every year*, plus
    • 2,400 Qantas Points for your business every year (or even more by paying B2Bpay Bonus Billers).

How much does it cost to use B2Bpay?

The only fee for using B2Bpay is a card processing fee – which ranges from 1.2% to 2.4% excl. GST (or 0.84% to 1.64% after eligible company tax deduction) depending on your card type.

This fee is outweighed by the value of the credit card and Qantas Points you can earn, plus the cash flow benefits of holding onto your cash longer.

 

Get started now

Paying your ATO bills by credit card offers a number of potential benefits for business owners, including credit card reward points. And if you’re disciplined about paying your credit card off each month, these benefits can easily outweigh the additional costs.

How This Boutique Business Owner Earns 50,000 Points Monthly

Saving time is without a doubt one of the greatest challenges facing any small, rapidly growing business. This was true for Andrew Wilcox, who co-owns Hop Vine & Still bottle shop in Hobart with his wife, Bek. As they juggle a young baby and growing business, Wilcox admits to being “very busy” at this point.

However, he finally found an easy time-saving hack with B2Bpay, an online portal he describes as quicker to use than internet banking.

And in addition to the time management benefits, Wilcox manages to earn 50,000 Qantas Points monthly with B2Bpay by funneling 90 per cent of business expenses through his American Express Qantas Business Rewards Card, and more again by doing so on the B2Bpay platform.

Many of his suppliers are also B2Bpay “bonus billers”, so he earns extra points when he pays these suppliers. As a result, he’s accumulating these 50,000 points per month simply by paying invoices! “That adds value not only to our business, but to use as well, for future travel,” he says.

As an independent, he stocks his shop with product he likes, excited by the demand for preservative and sulphur-free wines, as well as the emergence of non-alcoholic white spirits. Customers tell him they’ve travelled to his state just to sample local gins. “Tasmania has itself set up as a gin lover’s destination,” says Wilcox. “And we are passionate Tasmanians.”

Before opening their small business and becoming parents, Wilcox and his wife spent time travelling, pairing food and wine in Bologna and getting engaged in Berlin. Once able to travel again, they plan to head to France’s Champagne and Bordeaux regions. And when that time comes, they’re planning to use the Qantas Points their business has earned for a first-class flight.
