Going cashless at your university? Razer Merchant Services is your ideal contactless payment solution

As conscious efforts are being made by the Malaysian education industry to modernize the way education is delivered, Razer Merchant Services (RMS) hopes to value-add to the administrative end of education by enabling cashless payment services for various universities in Malaysia.

From the payment of tuition fees, meals to tickets, the transition toward cashless universities has started to pick up steam - Monash University Malaysia, Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM) and Universiti Teknologi Mara (UiTM) are a few of the universities who have enabled cashless transactions. Working with Razer Merchant Services’ solutions has made it seamless for universities to process multiple payment types across multiple locations.

Find out why you should partner with Razer Merchant Services payment gateway to create an integrated payment solution for your university:

1. Drives efficiency

Moving to digital systems in for your non-teaching administration activities greatly improves efficiency, effectiveness and convenience for the university.

According to a study from Deloitte, the primary pain points that a digital payment system aims to address are centered around manual processing, the risk of fraud and loss as well as poor user experience.

With Razer Merchant Services, you get a digital payment ecosystem to bill and receive your payments. By worrying less about what is owed and paid, you can focus on the biggest priority to your students – their education.In addition to driving efficiency, by digitizing transactions between schools and parents/students, the risk of human errors is significantly reduced, whilst the experience for all your stakeholders is improved.

2. Delivers convenience

The pandemic has been one of the major catalysts for the shift towards contactless payments, with businesses responding to health-conscious customers and adapting to the new normal of social distancing, the added convenience is essential as well. You can view and track all previous transactions from an easy-to-use UI, and analyze payment trends - ideal for financial planning while maintaining the transparency of your transactions.

Furthermore, the added convenience of online payments will also improve the user experience. Parents and students will appreciate the speed and ease to make payments, without the hassle of traveling to a physical counter to pay.

Digital payments also save administrators time from processing payments. Using online payments also saves you money and reduces waste - as you don’t need to buy paper and ink to print statements. When performing a study on Australian schools, Deloitte reports that more than RM145,000 (AUD $48,000) and 2,145 hours were saved annually per school after implementing digital payment systems.

3. Fewer late fees

Late payments can be frustrating for an administrator who has to keep track of them and make the additional effort to send reminders. It can also prevent the school from getting the necessary funds to pay its staff and run its educational programs. With a digital payment system, there are often fewer late payments.

Students and parents can process school transactions just like they process any other transactions – in their own time and at their convenience. Parents or students can pay online, and no longer have to mail in a check or pay in-person. To minimize the chances of late payments, Razer Merchant Services is able to install an out-of-the-box recurring payment system for your student portal.

4. Flexible payment options

Dealing only with cash can deter payment and frustrate users. Online payment systems open up a wide range of payment options - including credit/debit cards, online banking and e-wallets.

Razer Merchant Services’ Virtual Terminal app will add an additional way to receive payment on university grounds as well. All you need is a smartphone to generate a QR code to perform transactions, making it simple for your students to purchase items hassle-free. We can also help scale your payment touchpoints at an affordable cost.

5. Increased security

Digitized payments are tied to banking infrastructure that is tried, tested and highly secure. After all, cardholder information is sensitive and can be used for fraudulent purposes if it gets into the wrong hands.

Digitizing payments has the benefit of removing previously physical monetary transactions, e.g., cash. Less cash is needed to be taken by students, thereby removing security risks.
