Customer Success Story

24 Mar 2024

Leading fashion brand Couture Menswear

We recently spoke to Flavio Scotece, a budding entrepreneur who founded leading fashion business Couture Menswear.

With showrooms in Melbourne and Sydney, Flavio tells us about his business journey and how PayNuts’ payment solutions have helped him save money and grow. Ensuring PayNuts provided a seamless experience, modern EFTPOS terminals and a cost effective and reliable service were key requirements in their search for a new payments provider.

Flavio, tell us about how you got stared in the fashion business?

“I have always had a passion for designing fashion and sketching designs since I was a kid. I have diaries upon diaries of designs and sketches from my younger years and I knew fashion was always my passion. I noticed the choice for men’s fashion in Australia was very limited and lacked creativity – it all sort of looked the same and was nothing like I saw in Europe. Deep down, I’ve always had a burning desire to build a brand in fashion and it was a no brainer to start Couture Menswear bringing new style and designs whilst staying close to my Italian influence".

The retail landscape is always evolving. How has your brand embraced innovation and adapted to changing trends over time?

"Fashion is one of the fastest evolving industries! It never stops – one fashion week ends, and another begins. To succeed in the cutthroat world of fashion it takes a keen eye to build a brand based on lasting style and not fad trends. We focus on giving our customers fashion that they want and fashion that lasts – it transcends the trends of the time and can be worn over. We do keep an eye on what is current and new, and we do try and build that into our current designs. The world is moving away from fast fashion, and we are part of that push".

What challenges have you faced as a business owner?

"Speak to any business owner and they will likely say delegating and hiring staff has probably been the largest challenge in the growth phase. As much as I would like too, I can’t wear all the hats! It’s been a priority of mine to build an incredible team of people who each bring their own unique perspective and strengths. When you hire the right people who fit your culture and are passionate about what you do the success follows".

What does having a partnership with business like PayNuts means to you?

"PayNuts have been great! They aren’t like the big guys who are out of touch with small business, they really understand SMEs like mine, and I know it’s part of their DNA. They have created an easy to use merchant portal which makes it straight forward for tracking cashflow, their EFPTOS terminals are very easy to use and look great! They fit our brand image and overall customer experience much more than our old terminals.

When I call PayNuts, I deal with real people who are experts at what they do. Support wise, they are onto things whenever I need anything.

Given the current economy wide cost pressures basically every business expense has gone up, so it has been really rewarding to work with PayNuts to minimise my costs through lower merchant fees that do not hit our bottom line as hard as some.

With PayNuts, you don’t just get a payments provider, you get a partner in your business who is committed to your success".

What are the plans for the future?

"I want to keep growing the business. We are currently building a ready-to-wear collection following the same quality craftsmanship and style our couture/custom clients love and know. We are at a place where we can grow our position in the Australian market and reach more clients. We love what we do and with our ready-to-wear range coming soon, we are excited to be able to service more of the market and bring Couture Menswear style to a much larger market".

PayNuts is a leading SME payment provider that offers a range of Android EFTPOS terminals and services to suit businesses. With same-day funding available, customer surcharging, 24/7 support and a dedicated merchant portal for single-source reporting just some of the great features that they provide. Pay nothing or peanuts for payments, nuts not to.
