Stripe offers a simple and convenient way to enable your clients to pay their invoices with a credit and / or a debit card.
Simple Fast Account Creation
If you dont currently have access to a merchant account or think you can't get one, think again. With Stripe, applying for an account is simple and quick. Accounts are generally approved in just hours which means that you could be taking payments from your clients on the day you applied for your account.
A Gateway and Merchant Account in One
The world of credit / debit card processing is very complex with endless combinations of gateway providers and merchant accounts. Stripe removes the need to have a relationship with two more more companies by providing both a gateway solution AND a merchant account in one simple integrated product. Stripe handles your payment from your clients credit card right the way through to your bank account.
Take Payments in Bulk or Pay Now
The advanced functionality of Pet SItter Plus combined with your Stripe account enables you to take bulk payments from many clients in a single action, drastically reducing the time it takes to collect your funds and improving cashflow.
However if if you prefer the "Pay Now" model, your clients can choose when to pay by clicking a "Pay Now" button in their online account.
One Simple Fee Structure
Traditional credit card processing solutions often promise cheaper rates but then these rates are either not realised or are cancelled out by hidden fees and compexity.
With Stripe the fee structure is simple, transparent and guarenteed. One fee stucture covers Visa, Mastercard and AMEX transactions so there are no surprises and there is no longer any need to worry about varying complex rates and markups on interchange.
If you are in the US, you can take advantage of switching to ACH Payment Processing from Stripe, potentially saving you up to 60% on typical payment processing fees.
