PaySimple is a solid management tool that is able to integrate multiple processes into a single platform. It allows you to accept online or offline payments, send automated invoices for recurring billing, capture touch signatures, send electronic receipts, book online appointments, send personalized “thank you” or receipt emails, generate custom reports, create hosted web payment forms, store account details for repeat transactions, import/export data, and automate follow-ups for late payments.
PaySimple gives you the flexibility to accept varying payment methods, including credit and debit cards, ACH, or eChecks, either via the phone through a secure virtual terminal, online, or by using a mobile card reader.
PaySimple has an intuitive, easy-to-use interface which makes it joy to use, and because it’s optimized for mobile, it makes appointment scheduling and payment processing more convenient for customers, as they can book appointments and send you payment by using a smartphone or a tablets. This, in turn, eliminates the need to send paper invoices. PaySimple also integrates with BookSimple, an online scheduling software that allows your clients to book appointments via your website.
A great feature of PaySimple is the ability to manage mobile payments. With the app and mobile card swiper, PaySimple lets you turn your tablet or smartphone into a payment terminal, which is as mobile as you are. There is no longer a need to line up behind a cash register to have transactions processed. Mobile payments with PaySimple also supports automatic e-receipts and touch signature capture. The PaySimple mobile card swiper is able to process all major credit and debit cards.
Not only does PaySimple process single transaction based billing, but it can also process recurring bills as well. This is a great way to establish a stable stream of revenues. Auto-pay workflows can be established by configuring billing intervals etc. Billing frequencies can be set up from daily to weekly, a specific day of the month, quarterly or yearly. PaySimple also securely saves your customers’ billing information, in order to stop repeated requests for financial data. The app can also automatically deal with payment reminders, receipt notifications, and failed transaction alerts. Emails with invoices can be set up to include a ‘Pay Invoice Now’ button, which provides customers with the option to pay online or download the invoice in PDF format.
ACH and eCheck Acceptance
PaySimple not only supports debit and credit cards, but it also accepts ACH, and eChecks. PaySimple allows you to process credit and debit card payments, and each payment is directly deposited to your account. Any notifications and personalized receipts are sent to customers automatically. Regarding eCheck processing, PaySimple charges a flat rate of $0.55 for transaction amounts that are over $20. For larger transactions, this represents a cheaper option than being charged a percentage per transaction. ACH also allows you to directly collect from a bank account, for quicker payments.
PaySimple integrates very well with QuickBooks Online, and it provides a developer API, which allows you to connect your existing systems.
