For your Customers
Why should I choose Paoma over direct Credit Card payments with Google?
Paoma offers a more cost-effective solution for payment. Local Credit Cards in MUR incur approximately 3% processing fees on foreign currency transactions. Paoma invoices in MUR and enables payment through local bank transfers, helping you save on processing fees.
I already pay Google with my credit card for an exisitng Google Workspace Subscription How does the billing transfer from Google to Paoma work?
The billing transfer process is simple. Our technical team will guide you through a few steps in your Google Workspace Admin Console to retrieve a code and transfer it to us. Once completed, the transfer will take place overnight. You'll receive a credit from Google on your credit card for the remaining days on your last bill prepayment. Subsequently, you'll receive your invoices from Paoma at the end of each subscription month.
Google Workspace prices are quoted in USD. What will be the monthly charge in MUR?
To provide you with the best price, we use the MCB selling spot rate for each invoice, ensuring you get the most competitive rate without inflating the MUR price to mitigate exchange rate fluctuations.
Can I choose to pay in USD?
Absolutely! If you prefer USD invoices, let us know, and we will provide you with a USD account for payment.
