There are several ways to process a credit card, either swiping in person, manually or via email! What I like best is that the credit card link can be included when emailing client invoices and when a client contacts me to pay their bill with a credit card, I can easily email them a link, and they can then enter their own information. I get an email with payment confirmation and a few days later the funds are deposited into our account! You can even set-up automatically monthly client payments for clients on a payment plan.
Sometimes the fees are a little excessive, especially for American Express users
If you operate any type of business, I recommend LawPay! These days everyone is paying with a credit or debit card. LawPay's monthly fee is extremely low, and there are several ways to process a payment! As a law firm, we have several bank accounts, including operating accounts and trust accounts -with LawPay you can set up as many accounts as you wish, and it's extremely user friendly! We've been able to collect a lot of old debts from clients who did not have the funds, but had a credit card to use.
Prior to LawPay, we were unable to accept credit card payments. Many times clients wouldn't necessarily have the funds to pay their bill, but they had a credit card available. Now with LawPay we are able to accept credit cards, therefore we are collecting payments from clients that otherwise wouldn't be able to pay their bill. And with the automatic charge option, we are able to collect regular monthly payments from clients with large balances.
