What You'll Find In This Chat

Let's chat about good bookkeeping practices.

✔ Is Ablii workflow an alternative to Plooto?

✔ Ablii features for automated online payments

✔ What Ablii is and is not?

Last week (mid August 2019) Plooto rocked the payment processing capabilities for Small Business owners in Canada by changing its pricing model. Accounting practices have been taken off guard by the limited time to adjust their own pricing models for this drastic change.

What is the change? Before August 31st, 2019 each Plooto transaction ranged for about $1.00 with no monthly fee. A date of October 1st, 2019 was provided to existing customers using Plooto to transfer to the new model. The new Plooto pricing model will charge $25/month which includes 10 domestic transactions and 1 international payment. After 10 domestic transactions the per unit transaction fee is reduced to $0.50. Although the new pricing structure benefits larger organizations, the small businesses who rely on this app to transfer less than 10 transactions a month are at a loss. Paying $25/month has priced many of them out of this app according to our internal social media channels on #FinTech Details as well as several accounting groups like QB-HQ and The Workflow Wateringhole.

With little time to recoup accounting pros have united to find a solution for their smaller clients. At Moore Details Inc. we will continue to use Plooto for our larger clients that are already on this application, but will be investing in the Ablii workflow moving forward for our smaller clients with adapting needs.

Ablii of Nanopay was gracious enough to accept an impromptu meeting with us on Monday August 26th to help us get to know Ablii better (pronounced Ab-lee)

Here's the #FinTech Details on the Ablii Workflow

What is the Ablii Workflow?

To keep the Ablii workflow as a simple to use payment platform it does not focus on recurring receivables. Though you can request funds on an individualized basis. If you require recurring receivables you may want to consider Rotessa for your clients and Practice Ignition for your practice. There are also recurring receivable and payments options both within Xero and QBO. Similarly to follow the KISS philosophy, international payments are better suited to an online banking platform like CIBC Smart Banking or reverting back to Plooto at this time.

With Albii's recent launch (July 2019) there are several features still being considered for development and some becoming live in the very near future. Ablii fully understands the need for CRA payment processing, accountant dashboard, utility payments & faster processing times. Although we don't have a go live date for these options, it was refreshing to hear the the needs of our clients being heard. Interact with Albii on twitter to check in on the latest and greatest.

We are excited to see the corporate culture of Nanopay shine through its Ablii product offering with the focus on client care from startup to enterprise.
