The impact of COVID-19 and lockdown on the economy and business will be felt for a long time to come, even as we start to move to lower levels of lockdown. FNB is committed to helping restart the economy and getting small businesses active again.
At the same time, we understand that, as a small business, getting paid on time is as important as getting new work. We believe nav» Home Services can help you do both.
Not only does it provide you free access to almost 3 million potential customers right on the FNB App, it also lets you manage the entire process in one place. Making it easier for you to grow and do business during these challenging times.
We've specifically created nav» Home Services as a digital marketplace for home service providers, such as electricians, plumbers and security installers. Home Services is the first of many categories to go live. And we are excited about rolling out new categories.
Think of nav» Home Services as a smart market, where FNB-banked customers who are looking for help around the home, can easily find you. If your business meets their search criteria, based on location and services required, your business profile will appear in their matched results.
They'll then be able to chat with you directly via the app, so that you can understand their job request. Chat also lets you submit quotes and agree a suitable time for the job. So there's no need to switch to a phone call or email. Chats are automatically saved to provide you with a full job history and help you quickly deal with customer queries.
We also understand that cashflow is the lifeblood of your business. And how important it is to get it flowing again. So we've made getting paid really fast and easy by automating the whole process for you. There is no need to share bank details or chase clients for payment.
Simply submit a payment request via the app and the money will be in your account within minutes to 48 hours, depending on the payment method chosen by your client - EFT, credit or debit card.
We've also included a rate & review tool, that lets you and your clients assess each other. This helps us build a trusted community and helps you build a great reputation.
Registering your business is simple and straightforward. And free.
Our nav» Home Services team are here to help you get onboard as quickly as possible. So if you need assistance with the registration process or creating a logo for your business, please contact us on 087 730 5790 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
