How to pay for staff training and education with a credit card

Staff training and education is important for a variety of reasons.

It can help improve employee performance, increase employee satisfaction and morale and reduce employee turnover.

Happy, engaged staff with a greater knowledge base can only enhance a businesses’ performance overall. 

Whether it is training in finance, sales, marketing, administration or management, professional external training can prove a big benefit. 

Many larger businesses will also provide employees with digital training programs to ensure they are across associated laws and company guidelines and policies.

Regardless of what type of training and education you provide you to your staff, you are going to have to pay for it. 

But what if you could pay for all your employee training and education with a points-earning credit card? 

With pay.com.au, you can.

How can you pay for employee training and education with a credit card?

Some providers will only take VISA and Mastercard payments and others might only accept payment by direct debit or BPAY.

Regardless of how your bills say you can pay, with pay.com.au you can make payment by any credit or charge card of your choosing. 

The process is simple: You make a payment at pay.com.au with any VISA, Mastercard or American Express card and we will pay your bill on your behalf.

The timing between a credit card payment made by you and receipt by the payee is typically only T+2 days. 

And by paying with a credit card, you could enjoy up to 55 days interest free on all your staff education and training fees, potentially helping with any short-term cash flow problems you might have.

How many points can you earn paying for staff education and training with a credit card?

This depends on the type and size of your business and how many employees you put through training programs.

However, with the right business credit card you can earn up to 1.25 points per dollar spent when paid through pay.com.au
