Calgro M3 chose LayUp to be a digital payments partner

Calgro M3, a listed company on the JSE, owns multiple memorial parks across South Africa. The company needed a way to enable its customers to buy burial sites using interest-free instalments with LayUp’s Lay-By and Recurring Billing services

A digitised recurring payment system built for scale. LayUp accepts large or small recurring payments with ease.

LayUp provided POS technology which allowed Calgro M3 to instantly offer a digitised recurring payment plan service to their customers. Through this, they were able to accept payment plans and seamlessly grow sales by over R500,000.00 within the first 72 hours of completing the integration. The highest sale recorded to date for a single plot is R350,000.00.

How it works for Calgro

  • Calgro Merchant Account activated, allowing them to then define all relevant merchant settings from their customized Dashboard
  • The configurable merchant settings gives Calgro the flexibility to tailor its payment plans the way they want to.
  • Once configured, the management team provided secure access to their sales team on the ground where they gained access to their merchant user account via the POS Android terminal.
  • The sales team is able to set up a payment plan on an enquiry and within a few steps have the customer activate their payment plan and complete the transaction.
  • This will instantly update the back office team where-by they can start processing the customer and purchase.  

“Our interaction with LayUp has been fantastic! The product offering is simple, user-friendly and extremely efficient. The LayUp platform has allowed us to seamlessly offer our client the ability to pay for their products over an extended period of time with minimal effort required from our own teams.” – Waldi Joubert, Managing Director Calgro M3
