How to Earn Qantas Points When You Get Paid Through Xero, MYOB, QuickBooks

Do you ever find that you are juggling multiple tasks and software systems while handling your business admin? Maybe you’ve had to manually enter data from one program to another to ensure it was recorded properly or copy information multiple times over.

How Else Can I Maximise Points? 

  1. Pay all your business expenses by card using B2Bpay. B2Bpay allows you to pay all your expenses by card, regardless of whether your biller accepts credit card payments! You’ll be able to maximise your points earning potential and earn Qantas Points on all these essential payments*. 
  2. Earn FULL credit card points by paying ATO, Government, Telco, and insurance bills. With most credit cards you earn no or reduced points when paying these expenses directly to the biller. When you pay via B2Bpay, you earn full credit card points#. 
  3. NEW! Earn Qantas Points when you pay using your bank account. You can now pay by bank account with B2Bpay and still earn Qantas Points. Earn 1 Qantas Point for every $3 paid using your bank account*. Payments using your bank account give you more choice and flexibility especially when you have reached your credit card limit or want a cheaper (yet still rewarding) way to pay. 
  4. Earn Qantas Points when customers pay you by card…at no cost to you! By including a simple ‘Pay Now’ link on the invoices you sent out via Xero, MYOB, QuickBooks integrations, you can earn 1 Qantas Point per $20 paid to you via Visa or Mastercard*. Then sit back and earn Qantas Points when your customers pay you by card at no cost to you (unless you opt to pay the card processing fees). Get paid faster, as most customers prefer to pay 24/7 online. 
  5. Utilise your cards up to 55-day interest period by scheduling major payments after your card’s payment cut-off date. Credit cards come with a monthly payment cycle (e.g., 28th to the 27th) whereby all payments in that cycle fall onto the same credit card bill. So, when you can, pay large expenses just after your payment cycle to boost your cash flow and maximise the credit card interest free days you receive.
