Accountants generally have a few top priorities when looking for a payment processor. This includes 1) the ability to let clients accept credit cards online, 2) the ability to send and track invoices easily, and 3) really low credit card processing rates.
Let Clients Accept Credit Cards Online
The most convenient way for clients to pay their accounting bills is to pay online. This is why Clearly Payments has set up payment pages for accountants. A payment page is section on your website that clients go to in order to enter their credit card information and pay their bill.
We take care of all payment security concerns and PCI standards. This means you do not need to worry about securely storing credit card information or the process of sending payment data. Our systems ensure that the liability stays with Clearly Payments.
The client pays their bill online and receives an email receipt. You will then be notified in real-time which customers have paid.
Ability to Send an Email Invoice
Digital invoicing is a great option for accounting firms that want a way to send quotes or invoices by email and collect payments online. Everything you need to create, send, or track a quote or invoice is built into the platform. There is no coding or integration necessary.
One of the last things you want to do is chase down clients for paying a bill. The Clearly Payments invoice system automatically reminds clients of their bill. You will not need to manually email clients with reminders. From a single dashboard, you can see which clients have paid online and which clients are late with payments.
Low Credit Card Processing Rates
Most accountants are paying 3% or more to credit card processing companies. Many accountants surprisingly are not aware of this. There is no need to pay this much.
Getting good rates from a credit card processor is tough but not impossible. It can be complicated to understand your rates. Credit card processing has some of the most complex pricing of any industry. We’re trying to remove that complexity or at least make it so you don’t need to care about it. This is why we also set up a partnership with the Chartered Professional Accountants of British Columbia (CPABC).
We set you up with the lowest rates and we provide support along the way to reduce your credit card processing fees. We believe no accountant should be paying 2.9% or more.
