Atoa is an instant bank pay solution that revolutionises the payment process for car dealerships, ensuring faster transactions at unbeatable rates.

Our solution will save dealerships 60% or more on payment processing fees compared with traditional debit card payments, with no hidden charges. What you see is what you get.

Additionally, Atoa offers instant settlement, which improves your dealership’s cash flow, allowing you to focus on selling more cars and enhancing customer satisfaction.

Atoa is already helping more than 500 dealerships in the UK to streamline their payments process – read on to find out more.

How it works

Atoa simplifies the payment process with user-friendly payment links that can be shared via SMS, email, WhatApp or invoices.

This ease of use translates to faster and more efficient transactions, helping you close sales swiftly. Here’s how it works:

  1. Enter the amount due: Using the Atoa business app, the merchant enters the payment amount to generate a QR code
  2. Scan the QR code: The customer scans the QR code with their phone and selects their bank app from the list
  3. Approve the transaction: The customer approves the payment in their bank app using face or fingerprint ID

This streamlined process allows customers to transfer money instantly, moving another car off the lot in just a few clicks.

Payments are deposited into your business bank account within three seconds and you receive a real-time notification, eliminating the need to chase finance for updates.

Benefits of using Atoa

Saving money and speeding up sales isn’t all. Atoa also offers a range of additional benefits designed to enhance your dealership’s operations:

Real-time payment visibility: All staff members have access to real-time payment updates, reducing the need for constant communication with your financing team or owners.

Custom staff access levels: Tailor access levels within your dealership, from director-level super-admin views to cashier-specific permissions, ensuring everyone has the appropriate level of access and oversight.

Google reviews integration: Encourage positive customer feedback by seamlessly prompting customers to leave a Google review after making a payment. Only reviews with four stars or above are published, enhancing your online reputation.
